After Care (4:15 - 5:15 PM) for the week of August 5-9 for the Imaginarium: Inventor's Workshop summer camp.
Strengthen your inventor skills and tackle some intriguing challenges! Real inventors know that moments of failure are necessary on the path to success. Inventing is not a “eureka moment”, but a process that requires collaboration, hands-on STEAM applications, creative problem solving, and entrepreneurship. Use all these skills to invent a robot that can draw, design a thrilling roller coaster ride, build a stabile structure using gumdrops, and more! Explore the far limits of innovation and imagination as you build your own creations!
Before Care (7:45 - 8:45 AM) for the week of August 5-9 for the Imaginarium: Inventor's Workshop summer camp.
Properties of Matter for Elementary Teachers will meet August 6-8 from 8:00 am - 12:30 pm at Discovery Center Museum. Standard Registration is $75.

Get your hands on amazing substances and investigaet properties of solids, liquids, and gases. Construct models of atoms and molecules, and measure volume, mass, and density without fancy equipment! Observe chemical reactions, explore interactions of matter and energy, and examine current applications of nanotechnology.
Saturday August 10 9:30-11:30am
Experiments and explosions are just some of the fun of this camp! Campers will make predictions and practice their observation skills while combining cornstarch, water, baking soda and more! Practicing the scientific method has never been more playful.
