Week 2: I Wanna Be… An Explorer!
Onward ho!! Let’s travel the globe and explore unique sites to learn about the many wonders our planet holds. Campers journey deep into the earth to witness how volcanoes formed islands, dive to the deepest depths of the ocean to discover how tectonic plates formed the Mariana trench, and swing along treetops of a rainforest to explore this amazing biome! From recreating cave art to building motorized tornado spinners, this camp offers exciting hands-on projects that reinforce the scientific topics of the day. Just like past explorers such as Magellan and Sacagawea, our little adventurers take bold steps to make their very own worldly discoveries.
Additional Topics Include: Oceanography, Cartography, Layers of the Earth, Rock Cycle, Tectonic Plates, Volcanoes, Water Cycle, Weather
Week 5: I Wanna Be… A Detective!
Calling all mini-sleuths! Pull out your oversized magnifying glasses and join us as we solve some epic mysteries! In this camp kids explore how science is the key to great detective work! Using a combination of the principles of physics, chemistry, and biology, campers employ critical thinking techniques to help them crack new cases every day. In search of that hidden clue? Build yourself a UV flashlight! Need to spy on those behind you? Break out your rearview mirror eyeglasses! Curiosity and logic lead the way as we collect evidence, investigate, and problem solve – all in the name of science. Sherlock Holmes would be proud!
Additional Topics Include: Magnetism, Optics, Ciphers, Magnification, Image Distortion, Phosphorescence, Prisms, Refraction, Fingerprints
Week 7: I Wanna Be… A Zookeeper!
Welcome to The Launch Zoo! Follow in the footsteps of a zookeeper as we visit extraordinary animals and discover the science behind what makes them special. By simulating a stroll through the grounds at the fictitious Launch Zoo, campers tour exhibits ranging from butterflies to bears. It’s feeding time! Let’s head over to the Savanna exhibit and learn about the carnivorous lion, herbivorous giraffe, and omnivorous ostrich. Wondering about locomotion!? Let’s investigate how snakes slither, lemurs leap, and falcons fly. Questions about camouflage!? Let’s create a take-home model of a color-changing chameleon! Each day we examine animals that reveal unique and extreme adaptations. Kids begin to understand how the environment can shape a species’ appearance and diet, all while raising awareness of the importance of conservation efforts worldwide
Additional Topics Include: Classifying Animals, Habitats, Predator vs. Prey, Echolocation, Life Cycle, Metamorphosis, Nocturnal vs. Diurnal, Night Vision
Senior STEM Themes (2nd – 5th)
Week 3: Potent Potions + Fizzing Formulas
Double, double, toil and trouble; fire burn, and cauldron bubble! Launch’s junior scientists explore the magic of the molecular world of chemistry in this exciting camp that’s full of actions and reactions! Mystifying topics such as phosphorescence, oxidation, and chromatography are unmasked as we reveal the science through projects such as potion vials, magic wands, and foamy explosions. Kids are mesmerized by the colorful fizzing formulas that make up the world around us, forcing them to ask the question: is it magic, or is it science?
Additional Topics Include: Polymers, Elements, Chemical Reactions, Rate of Reaction, Hydrophobic vs. Hydrophilic, pH, Chemistry of Color, Crystallization
Week 6: Rocket Science: Destination Mars
Join our flight crew as we blast off to Mars! This exciting camp delves into orbital rockets and how they are fueling our quest to explore other worlds. Mission preparation begins by building miniature launch vehicles and conducting experiments to examine the science behind space travel. Next, we countdown to launch and learn all about the long trip to Mars and its effect on humans. The journey continues with a touchdown on the red planet where we establish a colony, build a rover, and orbit a satellite to explore the Martian landscape. From the basics of Newton’s Laws to solid and liquid propellants, campers learn what it takes to be real rocket scientists! It’s sure to be an experience that’s out of this world!
Additional Topics Include: Trajectory, Rocket Structure, Aerodynamics, Newton’s Laws, Rocket Fuel, Orbital Mechanics, Escape Velocity, Future of Space Exploration
Week 8: Remarkable Robots + Marvelous Machines
R2-D2, WALL-E, Transformers… We all remember those futuristic machines. However, robots are no longer confined to fictional worlds! From self-driving cars to robotic roller coasters, campers learn about sophisticated machines that are here today tackling complex tasks – with amazing speed and precision. At this Launch camp kids study the fundamentals of engineering and technology necessary to create amazing contraptions, and then construct simplified models of their own to reinforce the principles learned. From projects such as Motorized Airplane Launchers and Battle Bots to programmable LEGO WeDo structures, kids at Launch are immersed in a world of remarkable robots and marvelous machines.
Additional Topics Include: Industrial Robots, Autonomy, Control Systems, Motors, Sensors, Programming, Circuitry
