How do you know what animals live in your neighborhood? Why do animals live where they live? Become a Junior Naturalist as we explore all things animals! From listening to sounds to exploring a variety of habitats, we'll learn how animals are suited to their environments and how to figure out what animals might be living in our own backyard!
Get ready to dig into dinosaurs! We'll explore prehistoric worlds as we learn about fossils and dinosaurs. From mini excavations to exploring real dinosaur bones, we'll be digging into the past to discover all about those great lizards that once walked the Earth.
Dig into dirt, howl like wolves and grow plants for a wonderful science experience! Campers will explore the living world around them through hands-on activities. Together we'll explore what living things need, learn ways to find shy animals, explore how the water cycle works and much more!
The past comes alive with this exciting program! Your team of explorers will travel back in time to discover dinosaurs, ancient Egypt and everything in between. Dig for fossils in our new Dig Site and talk to real scientists that have uncovered real dinosaur bones!
Science in Action
Get ready for chemistry! There are lots of fun, simple chemical reactions right in your kitchen! Curious campers will mix different things to explore amazing changes. Hands-on activities will lead to bubbles, slime and strange color changing liquids. We'll also develop our scientific skills as we make observations, measure ingredients and try to guess what is going to happen next!
Science in Motion*
The Science Center is happy to partner once again with Kids 'n Motion. Together we'll offer this exciting program that will get your young scientist exercising their body as well as their brain. Led by licensed Occupational Therapist Erica Furrer of Kids 'n Motion, campers will learn a variety of exercise and fitness techniques by using equipment designed just for their size! The exercise portion of the class will be followed by a fun activity based program led by Science Center camp counselors covering a wide range of science concepts.
Our senses are amazing. Learn how we connect with our world as we play with our five senses. From optical illusions to seeing how well we can stand on one foot, we'll see how our senses, brain and body work together!
Through the magic of fiction we'll explore the world of science! Each session will begin with storytime and different books will be used each day. Our reading time will be followed by hands-on activities related to the themes and/or characters from our books.
There's No Place Like Space
3....2....1....Blast Off! Get ready to rocket into orbit and explore things that are out of this world! Learn why our sun is so important. Discover the planets of the solar system and what makes each one special. Visit the James S. McDonnell Planetarium for a special show. And maybe, if the timing is right, we can even observe the moon!
