Class Description

Students attend all six classes for thirty minutes each day of the camp.

Phenomenal Physics:

This course is designed to explore physics ideas connected to real-world experiences. Students will learn about motion, forces, friction, and Newton's Laws. Students will design their own rockets and explore the effect of friction on motion. Several exciting hands-on activities will be implemented to connect students to engineering design

Kids’ Southern Cuisine:
Students will have fun with food using easy-to-follow recipes that will allow them to use measurement, learn about nutrition, and explore foods that are staples and traditions in the South. We will focus on cultural aspects of these foods. Getting children involved in food preparation teaches them math and reading skills, safety, creativity, and responsibility.

Zoology: Animals Up Close and Personal:
SStudents will experience the animal kingdom in all sizes and forms. Students will learn about the range of animal life in the biosphere and will participate in hands-on activities to discover the inner workings of terrestrial and aquatic animals. Through hands-on activities such as specimen dissections and microscopic examinations, the course will emphasize an appreciation for animal biology, including anatomy and physiology, nutrition, and ecology.

Students will study the art and culture of the Australian Aborigines. All students will join together to create a traditional dot painting which will be displayed in the art room all week. Each student will create a bark painting using colors and designs associated with Aboriginal art. Throughout the week, we will be discussing the Aborigines and how they passed on their stories verbally, as well as through music and art.

Physical Education:
This course will acquaint students with various sports and recreation activities. Students will engage in problem solving activities in which group dynamics and team building are emphasized through discussions and participation in facilitated competition. Students will gain the ability to take initiative and explore personal values through various games and activities.

Science Snacks:
Who doesn't love afternoon snacks? They are fun to make, fun to eat, and fun to ...study? That's right! There is a lot of science that goes into the everyday snacks that you love. In Science Snacks, students will explore questions such as how baking ingredients work, how and why certain ingredients work and react together, and why people's tastes differ. Some of the awesome snacks we will be creating and studying are fizzy lemonade, solar s'mores, and ice cream in a bag.
