Birds, kites, planes and rockets - if it flies in, with or through the air it will be included in this camp as we investigate different types of aerodynamics. All week long, campers will build various flying machines, explore space and apply Newton’s Laws of motion as we take daily flights of discovery!

Daily Themes:
o The Milky Way
o The "Wright" Stuff
o Newton's Loco-Motion
o It's an Up Thing
o Rockin' Rockets

* Order of activities may vary

Additional Information

Birds and the Beasts
Where do owls live and what do they eat? How do some bugs walk on water? How do ants collect all their food? These questions and more will be answered with a walk on the wild side of things to explore owls, birds and all kinds of bugs.
Milky Way
What's in the night sky and how do we know what's up there? Explore the constellations, learn about celestial navigation and build their own sextant, sundial, planisphere and even a refracting telescope while discovering the wonders of the Milky Way!
Rockin' Rockets
Campers will learn the fundamentals of rocketry including the parts of a rocket, stages of flight and how Newton's third law applies to a rocket traveling to space. The campers will have a "blast" as they build their own model rocket to take home!
The Wright Stuff
Explore the fundamentals of aerodynamics in this hands-on program about how things fly. Basic principles of flight, building airplanes, testing with wind tunnels, balloon copter building will all be covered!
Up, Up & Away
Campers will explore the role that wind and the movement of air play on simple flying devices such as kites, hot air balloons and parachutes. Experiments with solar bags and parachutes will be performed. Build kites and windsocks during this hands-on day!
