Let's Get Chemical - Virtual Camp

May 18, 2020

Monday through Friday from 9am to 3:30pm and designed for grades 3-6.

Let’s Get Chemical! Join us in at-home experiments to delve deep into the world of chemistry and chemical reactions.

In Let’s Get Chemical, campers will:

• Explore the chemical properties of water, oil, and other liquids.

• Experiment with polarity, density, and states of matter!  

• Create their own pH paper and use it to test acidity.

• Make acid-base chemical reactions, to explosive results!

Please note: This camp is designed to use household items you can find in your kitchen! It will be helpful to have access to: water, cups, baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice, berry/grape juice, and coffee filters.

How Do Virtual Camps Work?

Our expert STEM Educators will facilitate hands-on activities, self-directed learning, STEM explorations and group discussions.

Each day of virtual camp will include:

• an hour long morning video session* from 9am-10am

• a daily challenge activity

• an hour and a half afternoon video session* from 2pm – 3:30pm

Video Sessions include games, discussion, instruction, science connection and an exciting online animal encounter or science demonstration presented live by our STEM Educators!

The daily STEM challenges encourage critical thinking, creative problem solving, and child-led exploration.  These challenges can be completed in under an hour an with limited parental supervision, with the opportunity for activity extensions that can last all day and beyond!

Campers will receive an online informational packet to help them complete the daily STEM challenges, including step by step instructions to follow, worksheets to complete, templates for projects, and a list of possible materials.  PLEASE NOTE:  the only materials necessary to participate in camp are a device with video and internet access (tablet, laptop, computer, etc) and a pencil and paper.  It is helpful to have a printer to print the online informational packets.  All projects can be completed with a wide array of household items.

Informational packets will also include extensions of our curriculum such as articles to read, videos to watch, and more activities to try at home with the whole family!

*video session will be conducted over Zoom and recorded.  If you need to miss a session, the recorded stream can sent via email.
