Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing. Explore how we got to the Moon, what we found there, and how we are planning a return to the Moon so that astronauts can live there! Students will discuss scientific topics, do Physics and Chemistry experiments, experience the scientific process, and watch amazing movies. Includes one parent-participation experiential.Adventure Through Open Minds (A.T.O.M.) Science Club is led by Madame Atom. Helping young people appreciate scientific wonders, she presents information in a simple, but not simplistic, way. Using auditory, visual, and kinesthetic methods to engage students in topics ranging from the Periodic Table and Elementary Particles to Cells and Super Nova, she brings a unique approach to science education that gets kids excited, developing a love of science that lasts a lifetime. For more info, including professional background, see https://atomscienceclub.com.Science, full of past, present and future adventures, is a subject/field filled with excitement, imagination, failures, accomplishments that can bring a feeling of purpose and joy to your life. This summer of 2019 offers us a unique opportunity to experience all this at once as we celebrate the anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing where Neil Armstrong put his foot down on another world: THE MOON. A truly amazing accomplishment for man-kind !

During each week of summer camp at Stanbridge, Adventure Through Open Minds Science Club aka A.T.O.M. Science Club will offer an exciting opportunity to students of all ages to learn about some of the basic science that made this amazing NASA mission an incredible success. For example: together we will explore how the rocket fuel provided the energy to launch the rocket carrying our astronauts, we will do this by studying both: 1) chemistry or the atoms in the rocket fuel and 2) physics or how the energy and forces were released from bonds between the atoms that lifted the rocket from the launch pad here on Earth and how later other fuel was used using the same scientific principle to return the space capsule Columbia carrying the astronauts back safely to Earth.

I will teach to all 3 learning styles by:
1) I will verbally interact with students by offering ideas and encouraging discussion for those who wish to talk as well as bring in a speaker from NASA who will tell them about the moon
2) do hands on experiments and tactile exploration of materials (for example magnets) as well as have the scientist from NASA allow students to kinesthetically work on a computer with him as he will show them how to use the NASA tool called Mars Trek
3) show visual examples of the materials they are learning.

We will study both E = Energy and M = Matter (From Einstein's famous equation E = mc2 ) by doing various really fun hands on experiments with magnets, chemical reactions, making waves and much more. We hope to have a visiting scientist from NASA come on the second day of the week to show students NASA's Moon Trek tool scientists are currently using to chose where to land, to explore, and to live on the moon ! NASA's next out of this world Mission "Returning to the Moon" ! Then towards the end of the week we will have a field trip to a scientific location that will help make all the information they have been learning become a reality.
