Summer Science Camp (2 – 5 yrs)
July 23 – 28 M – Sat. 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM
$300 (before June 22) Registration will open May 1, 2018.
We are offering a 6-day Summer Science Camp where we will introduce the basics of science for young children.
The process of discovery allows us to link isolated facts into coherent and comprehensive understandings of the natural world. This may sound simple, but by “linking isolated facts” your child will learn to think critically.
Young children must learn through experiences and exploration. Your child will be immersed in natural materials such as water, sand, rocks, and foliage to foster exploration and provide experiences with these found materials. We will take “a closer look” at each material your child experiences by asking inquiry based questions rather than giving information.
What are all the different ways that water can move?
Why does this object sink and this one float?
What happens to the sand when you put water in it?
Why do some rocks have patterns on them?
Why does this plant have a fragrance?
How do we measure something?
Which is the heavier?
Why do things fall down?
Why do they stick together?
We will journey into nature to take “A Closer Look”. We will explore and experiment and then discuss possible theories. These discussions within our rich environment will foster thinking and reasoning.
Also, your child will explore weight and measurement, magnetic forces, and gravity. Your child will experience working a weighing scale, learning how magnets work and why things fall down. Research shows that children remember and learn when they experience things and are asked to think about it.
As your child learns about the world, your child will also be learning to think critically. This camp will provide your child with deductive reasoning skills that your child will use in the future.
