4-Week Science & Engineering Camp
Arts, Science, Engineering, Maker
Due to local COVID-19 regulations, this site currently requires campers to consecutively attend multiple weeks. With this restriction in mind, we have grouped together some of our exciting themes to give your camper a package they are sure to enjoy.
Week 1: Dino Science
Roar into the summer with dinosaur science! Kids will learn about different dinosaurs and how they impacted the environment as campers put on their excavation gloves and get dirty, uncovering fossils in a dinosaur dig. They will use their knowledge of dinosaur biology to create skeletons, and recreate the beauty of these prehistoric creatures with painted masks. We'll also focus on responsibility and empathy this week as kids learn how to be good environmental stewards and respect the world they live in, keeping it safe for generations of humans and animals to come. Get ready to roar with excitement!
Week 2 & 3: Engineering with Empathy
Open your hearts and minds with EDMO as we create and engineer with empathy! During these two weeks, kids will get to showcase their maker skills while crafting projects that are intended to make people smile. They will use the design thinking process to brainstorm, blueprint, and construct a work of art or a useful invention to make the lives of their loved ones easier. After a year filled with stress and disruption, spreading love and joy has never been so essential in our world. This theme places special emphasis on social and emotional learning, with the intention of creating more connected communities. Each week will feature fun new projects and challenges. Engage with others and make the world a little brighter!
Week 4: Video Game Crafts
Let's get Minecrafting! Bring your favorite video game characters to life this week as we make awesome crafts inspired by fun games such as Minecraft, Pokemon, and Animal Crossing. Kids will create colorful 3D art using techniques such as origami, painting, and modeling to make many of the characters they already love. We'll meld gaming, arts, and social-emotional learning: As they create, kids will collaborate with each other on how their favorite characters solve problems and the type of traits needed to build great character.
