In-Person Full Week Camp
Mad Chemistry Lab: Mars Edition
We know about the chemical makeup of earth but what do we know about Mars? Students will become mad-chemist as they learn about the basics of chemistry, atoms, the compounds that make up the world around them while performing multiple chemistry experiments to understand the phase changes, materials, and how chemical reactions change substances and materials in order to determine what chemistry experiments can be performed while exploring the possibility of life on Mars. Every experiment performed is kid-friendly and safe for the classroom!
Plant Exploratorium: Sustainability on Mars
One of the big questionable factors for life on Mars is how will we sustain our food sources? Can we grow and harvest crops on Mars or will we have to use greenhouses or other methods to grow our food? This week we will be dissecting plants part by part and thinking like scientists. We will learn the roles different plant parts play in their growth, and develop a theory on what will be the best method to sustain plant life on Mars, taking into consideration the environmental differences. There will be excursions to local areas to get familiar with native, nonnative, invasive, and cultivated species. Using their knowledge students will build a take home greenhouse they can observe over time to see if their greenhouse can sustain plant growth.
