  • There are dozens of experiments on the BeyondLabz platform. The ones we do in the camp will be tailored to the interests of the students enrolled. Here is a sample schedule: Day 1, Circular Motion: To investigate the conditions for launching a satellite and maintaining stable orbital motion. Day 2, Optics: To study single slit diffraction and double slit interference patterns. Day 3, Electrons: To view atomic emission spectra and use a spectrometer to measure the wavelength. Day 4, Gases: To investigate the relationship between the temperature and volume of a gas. Day 5, Ecosystems: To determine how an invasive species, the Burmese python, affects other species in the Florida Everglades.
