Gross Science (Entering Grades VPK-6th)   (CLOSED)

Can you see the germs that grow when we don’t brush our teeth or wash our hands? Do you know how bugs protect themselves? Campers should expect a week of icky, sticky, gooey, slimy, dripping, digging while handling some truly gross science. Beware of blood curdling ews and groaning uggs as we get dirty discovering the disgusting, albeit fascinating, science that surrounds us!                                            

It’s Alive!  (Entering Grades VPK-6th) (CLOSED)

Lions, tigers and bears....not quite! But young scientists can join AAALC for some animal antics as they explore the world of live animals. This STEAM program integrates science, technology, engineering, art and math activities while working with fuzzy, furry, scaly, wet and slithery creatures. They will engross young zookeepers in a variety of animal explorationsYoung mathematicians may measure distance as they jump like frogs while budding entomologists observe how strong the smallest creatures of the earth can be! Older campers will experience more advanced science processes and be provided with opportunities to experiment with dissection and animal adaptations. Activities and animals will vary each day. Please be aware that children will be interacting with live animals at each session.                        

Minecraft Education: Animal Antics (Entering Grades 1st-8th) (CLOSED)

Scientific American declared, "...not only is Minecraft immersive and creative, but it is an excellent platform for making almost any subject area more engaging." Enter a world of rules, parameters, levels and goals that require hard work, intense thinking, teamwork and problem solving skills. Minecraft Education: Animal Antics will provide campers with the tools to build an incredible zoo! Planning, engineering and design will combine to provide students with the tools to create a one of a kind zoo through Minecraft, after studying how other zoos across the country are designed.                        

Create Your Own Website (Entering Grades 4th-8th) (CLOSED)

Campers will learn to create their own website as they are introduced to HTML. They will understand how a website works internally, as well as identify the elements and main pages of web design. Students will learn to create a website using Google Sites, adding pictures, templates and titles. This will include working with hyperlinks, blogs, photos, images and gifs to create a more elaborate product.  Web design and technology is a vital skill that is becoming critical to future success. Campers will be able to take what they learn and expand on concepts independently after camp is over.
