Daily Labs

Each day, campers and their fellow curious friends will join an expert instructor to learn about energy, motion, biology, and more. Lab material is inspired by our featured guest star.

Lab 1: Energy & Forces Lab
Explore—and learn to take advantage of—the natural forces of gravity, magnetism, friction, and more. Warning: when you work with gravity, things tend to fall down.

Lab 2: Motion Lab
Become a master of movement as you leverage velocity, acceleration, and propulsion to make things go. Warning: you may be asked to create your own rocket.

Lab 3: Biology Lab
Discover the wonder of life—and bring your pets as examples—as you explore the plant and animal kingdom around you. Warning: have soap nearby because you’ll probably get your hands dirty.

Lab 4: Machine Lab
Become an inventor using household items and the properties of simple machines to create toys and tools. Warning: machines only do the work for you after you’ve done the work to build them.

Lab 5: Chemistry Lab
Discover the building blocks of our world as you experiment with compounds, solutions, and change. Warning: some might say polymer is just a fancy word for slime.

So much of science happens away from the computer screen. That’s why your camper will get a set of engaging (and safe) hands-on activities they can do outside and around the house.
