Spring Camp Descriptions


Jr Explorers’ Club ( K to 1st grade)   -  Register Now!

March 14-18, 2016 - (9am - 12pm) -  Edmond MAC

Children explore different topics during this fun five-day camp. They take a trip through the solar system where each student become a Mad Science Astronaut in training. In an ‘explosive’ session students get introduced to simple chemistry fun. We simulate a volcanic eruption, observe protein molecules in action as they turn into explosive colors, and more. They get fascinated with light and learn how shadows and rainbow colors are made using a rainbow a catcher. They mix colors of light and explore the world of color. Take an imaginary trip to the beach and see how sand is made. Meet creatures that live in the ocean. Examine different shells, a starfish, & a sponge; and see how different sea creatures live. Make a tiny ocean to carry home ! This is a week of fun exploration and discovery!

A Journey Into Outer Space (2nd-5th grade)   - Register Now!

March 14-18, 2016 - (9am - 12pm) - Edmond MAC

From our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system, this camp sends young astronauts on a quest for exploration! Explore the farthest reaches of our solar system and create a lunar eclipse in this “mad” planetary tour! Make a comet using common kitchen ingredients and understand a comet’s composition. Discover technology designed for outer space! Steer a laser beam through a laser maze, find hidden mountains using the principles of radar technology, and discover everyday objects that were originally designed for use in space! Use your Bead Dipper™ to create a 3-dimensional glow-in-the-dark constellation! Then, it’s your chance to become a rocket scientist! Investigate the four forces of flight, and explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build your own Skyblazer II Rocket™ that you can take home!

LEGO Mindstorms Robotics (2nd-5th grade)   - Register Now!

March 14-18, 2016 - (1pm - 4pm) - Edmond MAC

Children explore the exciting world of robotics! They learn the mechanical aspects of robots such as gears, torque, hydraulics and pneumatics. They discover electrical circuitry as it powers robots at work. They then learn the robot’s principal components and identify, compare, and test many toy robots. They form small robotics teams to build programmable robots using the Lego NXT Mindstorms systems. Children work with ultrasonic, touch, color and motion sensors which collect information around them. The program interprets this information and make the robot respond to its environment. Children make the robots move in a dancing fashion, identify colors, follow a line and avoids objects around. These future roboticists will learn teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking skills, and develop the value of self-motivation and resourcefulness. Each child will build his own doodling robot to take home.
