Review the session subjects below and select two preferences. Please note once an activity reaches maximum capacity you will automatically be placed in the next available session.

- A Career in Drones? Learn about the most exciting and unusual uses of drones and the technology that makes them fly.

- Endotherm vs Ectotherm - Edible Blood: In an animal, blood is the liquid in the circulatory system. All animals have blood, but its nature varies slightly from one species to another. However, the main components and functions of blood are the same in all animals. Create an edible "blood" sample that shows how plasma, erythrocytes, leukocytes, and thrombocytes work together for the health and survival of all animals. Compare and contrast the blood slides of reptile, amphibian, crustacean, insect, and mammal, and interact with live animals.

- Fire & the Science Behind It: Learn how fire services use a K-9 and science to determine the cause of fires!

- It’s Easy to be Green: Being “green” means doing small things every day to make a difference in the world. There are countless ways to reduce the amount of waste you and your family produce. In the past – even 50 to 100 years ago – “living green” was called “living simply.” Clothes were hung out to dry, gardens provided organic food, and homes were cooled by opening the windows. Their “green” living came out of necessity, but many people now see wisdom in that way of living. Come and learn why in the 21st century living “green” has become a buzzword for a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.

- Jack & Alice: First, watch a short video about Jack Kilby’s most famous invention. Next, using the Alice programming language, students learn to create a simple program in an Object Oriented programming environment.

- Junk Drawer Robotics! Put your creativity and tech skills to work creating a functional robot. You’ll be working in teams to design and build your robotic creation from everyday items.

- Physics Magic: With a little knowledge of physics, we can do things that appear to defy logic. See a variety of tricks and demonstrations and then learn the science that explains how they work.

- Safety Jobs: What can you do with a job in safety? Learn about the different opportunities that exist and see demonstrations of respirators, ladders and scaffolds.

- The Science of Music - the pleasant sounds of music are strongly related to math and physics: We will sing, play, listen, and calculate as we gain a basic understanding of the nature of sound and music.

- Voices in the sky - recording bird song: Birds are known for their amazing vocal capabilities, which scientists study for a number of reasons. In this session you will learn about how to record bird songs, get to try out recording equipment, and learn about the many ways scientists study sounds.

- Whatcha Got There?: Identifying Unknown Chemicals - We’ll take a look at an unknown substance and figure out what it is by running a few simple steps. Students will gain an understanding of why we need to know what a chemical is before shipping it off-site.
