Austin Spring Break Camp

 


 

March 12 - 16, 2018

Yuckology

For Ages 6 - 12

 

Join Mad Science for an awesome camp during the 2018 Spring Break period.  The camp will be conducted from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Drop off your child as early as 8:00 a.m. for no additional charge and arrange late pick up to pick them up as late as 6:00 p.m.  The late pick up option costs an additional $75 per week per child.  Following is a description of each day of the camp that we are offering during Spring Break.

 

Cell City -Take a fantastic trip into cell city. Learn about cells and the different parts within them. You will compare the parts of a cell to a real city as you investigate its different functions. Build your own slimy take home model cell out of unique materials. Even your snack will be a fun cell model you can eat! 

The Organ Trail -Do you know the recipe for a healthy body? You will after you journey down the Mad Science Organ Trail. Come to camp and meet "Tall Paul"! Paul is a torso model that can have his organs removed and replaced. Paul’s brain, bones, lungs, heart, and digestion system will all be investigated. Make a gutsy apron and a model lung and mucus to take home. 

Scene of the Crime - Team up with fellow campers to solve the “Great Cookie Caper” crime. Arrive at camp to find a real crime scene surrounded by crime scene tape. Walk the grid and collect evidence to solve the crime. All of your observation skills will be needed as you use your new magnifying glasses and notebooks to record your evidence. Use your forensic skills to solve the crime and make your own cookie snack.

Chemical Counting - Get ready for a day in the Mad Science Laboratory! Turn a lemon into a battery. Experiment with electrochemical reactions, as you electroplate a penny and a nickel. Learn how chemical elements help you to create chemical compounds. Put your new chemistry know-how to work as you make your own brain goo!

Radical Reactions - Ready, set, reactions! Learn with hands-on reactions that matter is never created or destroyed. Make a rainbow and a chemical clock in a cup. Experiment with chemical bonds and whirligigs as you discover conductivity. Make your own invisible ink.
