What's Included

Celebrate a century of flight in this soaring science spectacular! The centerpiece of the camp is the construction and launch of a model rocket. The children will create different types of rockets. They will experiment with Air rockets, chemical rockets, water rockets and motor rockets. We will build recovery systems in order to launch our rockets again. The children will also build a special tool that helps determine the trajectory of a rocket. We will explore new universes that are orbiting distant stars. Investigate an alien mystery slime found in a distant planet. Explore the science behind the rockets that send them to space. Follow in the footsteps of the Wright Brothers while mastering motion through the air with flying machines of all shapes and sizes. Construct a kite, lift off with a rocket, and embark on a flight of fancy with propeller power. You’ll be surprised what we can make fly!
