Fall 2016

Desertology 

Become your very own Indiana Jones, and see why archeology is such an amazing science. Learn how to build pyramids and see just how innovative the ancient Egyptians really were. Dig through your very own pyramid and see what relic you just might find. Create your very own quicksand pit, and see why it is so deadly. Learn about erosion and weathering by creating sandstorms that will destroy any structure that you create. Like mummies, learn how to mummify like the ancient Egyptians and see how amazing this technique truly is. Work with desert animals like tarantulas and scorpions. Scary! All this and more will take place this spring session.

Winter 2016/2017

Cove of Bio-diversity

Jump into Carmelo’s Cosmic Kingdom and learn about animals like never before. Work with the green crab and see why it is listed among the 100 “world’s worst invasive alien species”. Be part of the battle of the insects, and see who is stronger than the giant Bess bug beetle or the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach. How smart are gerbils? Construct your very own gerbil maze and see if your Mongolian gerbil is able to outsmart your maze. Have you ever performed a dissection? If not, learn about the anatomy and physiology by dissecting squids, sea stars, and more. If you like zoology, then do not miss this coming fall after school science class.

Spring 2017

Nasa Kids

Hey, scientists! Learn how to build a rocket that can propel into the air and defy the laws of gravity. But oh no... the rocket debris has caused space pollution, and the international space station is in danger! Can you design a spacecraft to protect the Space Station from this “space junk”? Then, let’s land on an asteroid by building an amazing balloon-powered nano-rover. We will then journey the depths of space and even make our own comet! Next, we’ll visit the Sun and study its amazing light properties by building a spectroscope. The science of spectroscopy will allow us to study what kinds of atoms and molecules are in a star or gas through which starlight passes. Do not miss this space race!
