The Science Investigators camp is built around the development of a student’s 21st-century skills, especially those related to problem-solving, collaboration, and curiosity for campers in grades 6-8.
Science Investigators will learn the why behind the what and the how. We will investigate what is going on behind the scenes of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). We will engage in building and programming robotic devices and learn how to code them to navigate a course using various sensors, as well as the physics behind how they work.
There will be creative times using the Chatham Hall Makerspace that include 3-D printing, laser engraving, screen printing, and casting with various materials and processes. Campers will investigate the chemical and physical reactions that take place when these polymers are being formed. During the week, campers will investigate hydraulics, pneumatics, sound (including ultrasonic), light, and chemical reactions as they learn to create by taking advantage of the scientific world.
This will be a week of fun and learning with additional surprise activities that enhance the residential camp experience at Chatham Hall! No prior experience is required to be a part of this camp, only an open mind and a thirst for knowledge. Come learn with us!
