Sample Day

Camp days are structured around 1 – 2 hour Labs that can stand alone or may build upon a larger more complex project. Additionally, full day camps may includes Outdoor Fun (weather permitting), a Robotics or Computing Activity, Games and/or a Creative Arts and Crafts activity. There is always plenty of time for explorer-led discovery and freestyle creating! Each day will have a different timetable as groups rotate in and out of different centers.[/box]

Space Explorations

Day 3 Focus: Our Solar System

Today explorers will learn more about their universe by building a model of the universe using LEGO® bricks.  They will take the knowledge from previous days and use different gears and pulleys to make a working robotic LEGO® Orrery (working Solar system).  They may also create a Sphere out of LEGO® bricks to represent the Sun and other planets.
