Tinkerers (K-2)
9-12pm Minecraft Parkour Lab Challenge
What is Parkour? The activity or sport of moving rapidly through an area, typically in an urban environment, negotiating obstacles by running, jumping, and climbing. Students will design their own parkour course in the Minecraft. In survival mode, they will take on the challenge of making it through their very parkour obstacles. Game on – Which team will be the first to the finish line!
1-4pm DNA Discovery Lab
Students will spend time in our Geek Forest DNA lab discovering where our DNA comes from and where it is stored while getting the chance to unravel it themselves. The lab will consist of a hands-on DNA extraction using fruit. Students will be introduced to the basic of genetics by learning about DNA, the material that composes almost every living thing on earth!
