Curiosity Summer Camp is open to all students entering Kindergarten through Fourth Grades
Cardboard Craft and Build Challenges!
Week One: June 5th-June 9th, 2017
This week of camp is going to be all about inventing, building, and creating! Campers will participate in a cardboard challenge in which they will construct something magnificent that they’ve only imagined, using cardboard and other recycled materials. In their design journals, campers will write a narrative to share with the other campers about their cardboard creation. Other projects will include building a bridge to nowhere as well as constructing a twisty, crazy marble run. Camp will culminate with a creation share-out for families who can make it!
During this week of Curiosity Summer Camp, campers will explore the elements of design and textiles first through the sewing and felting of their own unique stuffy-creature. We will weave on mini-looms created from popsicle sticks. Campers will be able to start their own clothing fad as they design costume pieces and make their own bags, using materials like tarpaulin and duct tape. We will also tie-dye shirts to take home during this week. Camp will culminate with a fashion show on Friday afternoon in which campers will show off their designs!
This week our campers will ask questions, conduct investigations, and observe and explain their conclusions! Campers will build volcanoes and cause them to erupt. They will design and construct their own beautiful bubble wands and mix bubble solution for fun outdoor play. We will make twister tornadoes with colored water and soda bottles, mix all sorts of crazy things together to cause fizzy explosions, and prepare individual portions of gooey Oobleck to take home. This week of CACS Curiosity Summer Camp will culminate with a science fair on the final day!
