4-H STEM Day Camps. Exciting things are
planned for K-6!! You should be ready to discover three different exciting
topics this summer as they become investigators and detectives, doing
experiments, projects, crafts and some guaranteed messy fun, while making new
friends and building relationships with our camp counselors and staff.
Three science discovery topics/themes for this year include:
Edible Science & Experiments (June 6 & 8) Is there
slime I can eat? Can I eat playdough? Is
it true that I can create a stained glass window that I could actually eat? The
answer is yes to all of these questions. Discover how density affects your
foods, explore chemical reactions and learn about hydrolysis. You will make mountains, grow sugar crystals,
taste fizzy sherbet and more. Come learn about how edible science can be both
fun and messy through our cool hands-on experiments and projects, while mixing
together ingredients you never thought would taste so good.
Blast Off in Aerospace (June 13 & 15) Have you
worked with drones? Made rockets? Blasted them off? Created paper airplanes? Have
you ever made a paper helicopter? At
this camp, you will soar to new heights as you create the different rockets and
planes we have planned for you. You will make a hovercraft helicopter, whirly
bird helicopter, stomp rockets, straw rockets, tumble wing gliders and more.
You will get to try flying a drone on a simulator and try a balloon powered
Reptiles & Raptors (June 20 & 22) First
time ever, this camp will feature the Raptor Center from the University of
Minnesota. The center will bring an owl, hawk, falcon and in Foley there will
be a Bald Eagle. You will find out why they are called raptors and what makes
them stand out amongst birds. We also have a reptile expert coming and you will
get up close and personal with Ms. Violet the Boa, Mr. Nordeast the Ball Python
and Ms. Vizzy the Bearded Dragon. Plus, you will make your own accordion snake
and owl to bring home. You don’t want to miss this camp!
