In this one week, 4 day Science camp, learners will have hands-on experiments in elementary Chemistry and Earth Science. Can you design your own boat and make it float? Can you make fake lava? We'll explore these questions and many more.

Class experience

US Grade 1 - 3
Learners will learn:
• the scientific method
• surface [water] tension
• understand chemical reactions
• change variables to make experiments work
• observe and ask questions
• gather data, measure, predict and draw conclusions
• design and draw a floatation device
• perform different experiments
• and much, much more

*** SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS:  A sibling discount is available for this camp. This "sibling discount" is available after first sibling enrolls. Please contact me directly for the sibling discount to be applied for the second and third learner at time of enrolling.   
Being an educator for forty + years, I've taught all subjects to students K-8 which included science classes. I've taught special needs students and designed full curriculum for K-12 students. I have a passion for experimentation, imagination, creativity and exploration. I have actual experienced watching volcanoes erupt, hiked to the top of extinct volcanoes, traveled in many types of floating devices [kayaks, zodiacs, boats, small ships, yachts, and huge cruise ships, all real life experiences that adds to my enthusiasm as I teach learners in this Science Camp for Young Kids: Sinking Ships & Exploding Volcanoes.
Homework Offered
Learner should research volcanoes and lava and bring 3-5 facts to camp. Learners can bring new ideas and questions to camp for open discussion to share. Learners may continue and expand upon what was learned in the camp session.
Assessments Offered
Self assessment of progress and completed projects

Learners are using different ingredients including baking soda, food colorings, and vinegar throughout the experiments. For the safety of your learner, learners are NOT to ingest any ingredients. White vinegar is NOT toxic but you must be careful where you store it because it is acidic and must NOT be swallowed as none of the ingredients used in the experiments. Swallowing vinegar can cause stomach distress so if swallowed, the mouth should be rinsed out thoroughly and immediately with water.
