Description

Mad Science invites you to discover claws, codes and constellations with our exciting Camp Number 1. Following are some topics you will explore during this fun five-day camp. These are only a sample of some of the activities that you will be doing each day. The topics will not necessarily follow this order. However, each of these topics will be included at some point in the camp.

Mad Messages - Decipher the world around you as you learn different ways to send mad messages. Use Morse code to send secret transmissions to your friends and to interpret secret messages from them. Discover the mystery of the Mad Science Message Wheel. Experiment with cool color-changing goldenrod paper.

Earth Awareness - Learn all about pollution and what it does to our planet. Determine what big problems a little pollution can cause with a lake in a bottle. Unearth pollution solutions and other ways to help our planet. Bake nachos with solar power and make your own recycled paper.

Science of Sport - Jump right into the science behind sports. Test what your toes have to do with tennis and what your feet have to do with football. Make a balancing friend and find out what he has to say about sports. See how much air your lungs can hold. Make a helmet for your own crash test egg.

Nature - Let your nose be your guide on a trail of scents. Follow the clues on this aromatic path. Experiment with natural dyes that you can find in fruits and veggies. Decorate your own painters cap with all the colors that nature has to offer. Use jaws and claws to feed your beastly stomach.

Space Day - Blast off with science as you launch a water bottle rocket. Test soil for "Martian" life. Experiment with space suit design. Get a taste for space and eat like the astronauts when you make your own space snack. Learn how to throw water around and stay dry at the same time. Build your own rubber band powered space shuttle to take home.
