Dino Dig and Fossil Hunt- Explore ideas and methods of Archeology, Paleontology, and Geology and excavate the simulated bones of a model dinosaur! Assemble the fossil from your own “dig” to complete a 3-dimensional model of a dinosaur to take home. Investigate geologic time and fossil charts to compare living things then and now, and identify 20-million-year-old shark teeth and other fossils. See, hold, and identify items from our rock and mineral collections, and design your very own dinosaurs based on what we observe from our exploration.
*Now Offering a Second Session!



Creative Engineering: Imagination and Exploration-Ready to use your imagination to design, build, and play? Join us and become a Creative Engineer! Work with a 3-D construction kit (yours to keep at the end of the week). Design and build simple or complex models of vehicles, robots, moving creatures, and buildings. Then, use a geared motor to make them run! Use our Build Kits to create as YOU want to. Build the fun into your creations either from directions or your own imagination.



*Now Offering a Second Session!



Wonderful Wizardry of Science-Join in the escapades of your favorite magical characters while discovering the magic of science in this fun, chemistry-based workshop. Make edible wands, brew fantastic potions, and create amazingly “magical” chemical reactions! We will watch a mirage mysteriously appear, experiment with color and
light, and see who knows the most “fun facts” about Harry and his pals. Where will the sorting hat place you? Come and find out! This workshop is perfect for anyone who loves books and movies like the Harry Potter series.



Ancient Egyptian Archaeology-Step back in time as you become an Archeologist and explore Ancient Egypt! Excavate a mummy from a pyramid and keep the treasures inside. Learn about the importance of ancient Egyptian culture, create your own Ankh, make a paper pyramid to store artifacts, and explore fossils, artifacts, and art. Dig into the fun of exploring Ancient Egypt!



*An additional supervised lunch & recess block can be provided daily for students attending BOTH daily workshops, for an additional fee.
