NOTE: It is anticipated that the Brains and Behavior Camp and the Brain Camp for Brainiacs will be offered on alternative years. These programs provide two opportunities for students interested in neuroscience and differ in terms of the experiments conducted as well as the content focus.
Are You Smarter Than a Rocket-Scientist? Camp (5th-9th Grade) (Offered in even numbered years: Next 2016)
This is only offered every other year and so fills quickly. Join our science faculty to learn about the complexities involved in rocket design. Students will design experiments to explore a variety of topics relevant to rocket design for inter-space travel including the effects temperature through Charles Law on crushing metal, the importance of heat conduction and absorption, as well as the effects of Boyle’s law on the ability to withstand pressure changes. Students will also design rockets for travel within Earth’s atmosphere that will be powered by either compressed air or carbon dioxide. Students will learn the science behind propulsion and landing to aid in their design. The rockets will be constructed of household items and students will have the option to attempt to maximize either distance flown, softness of landing, or another variable of their choosing. This summer camp is designed to specifically meet the needs of gifted students who have completed 5th-9th grade.
Participants: Gifted Students that have completed 5rd-9th gradeIt’s Summer Vacation, Let’s Have Fun
Math Reading and Art Extensions
This program is limited to a select number of students each year. In order to benefit from the camp, participants must not only be gifted, but should also have the maturity to conduct themselves safely in a supervised laboratory setting. Our focus is both to have fun, and to become better scholars. Thus, children should be able to refrain from behaviors that will adversely impact the other participants.
