Your child will learn and make new friends in this week long camp. He/she will participate in exciting and fun enriching science activities led by a team of dedicated instructors. Click HERE to view what your child typical day looks like.
The first rule in any of our camps is having FUN. Our goal is to inspire the love of science through FUN and engaging activities. Every day, your child will learn from demonstrations, engage in hands-on experiments, and make new friends. He/she will participate in exciting and fun enriching science activities led by a team of dedicated instructors. Click HERE to view what your child typical day looks like.

April (5-day Camp)
Day 1> Super Spring Science
We love spring time. Flowers are booming, everything colorful and bright. With these thoughts in mind, we start the day by learning about colors. We learn about how to mix colors (Primary, Secondary and Tertiary colors). We put our skills to use by creating an acrylic based project.
We continue learning about colors, and how to brighten up our spring break by exploring the colors of the rainbow. We create our own rainbow paper to take home.Finally, we learn about Newton’s color wheel. We will break-up white light into its component colors, and design our own color wheel to take home.
Students will also looking at properties of other metals in terms of how they reflect, refract and disperse light.
Day 2> Bizzy Buzzy Biologist
We start the day by learning about plants, crops and pollination. Why are bees so important to farmers? We examine the bee’s life cycle. We also discuss other bug’s life cycle, and compare them to bees. We perform experiments using honey from bees.
We continue learning about plants and crops by looking at the importance of vitamins and nutrients. What are vitamins, and why are they important? Finally, we examine the life cycle of a pea in a take home experiment.
We examine the ecosystem around Cre8ive Zone, and record all the bugs we can find. We also construct a bug viewer to take home.
Day 3> Science Mix
This session is a mix of interesting chemistry, biology and physics experiments. Children will be learning about the role of DNA through a variety of hands-on activities. We will examine what makes individual unique. This session culminates in creating a simple model DNA. We will also use the microscope to examine the DNA of some plants, seeds etc.
We learn about chromatography during our colorful chemistry segment. We conclude by making color flowers.
We learn about the science behind propulsion and momentum. We watch and become a launch scientist by replicating a rocket. We experiment with rocket launching using different methods, before launching our water rockets.
Day 4> “Sense” tivity Science
We start the day by learning about the five senses. We discuss how the brain works, and put our sense of reasoning to task using a simple game. We continue by learning more about our senses: Hearing – we examine sound and sound waves. Is high pitch sound good for our ears? We demonstrate with a simple experiment.
Illusion: what do you see – what colors do cats and dogs see? We create an optical illusion using Benham discs
How sensitive is your nose?
We use a simple experiment and some games to explain the sense of touch.
Then, we use our brain power to recall all we have learned for the day using quizzes.
Day 5> Egg “cellent” Science
We finish our discussion from Day 2 by talking about where we get our food. We look at different animals on the farm. We examine the role of farmers, and how we raise livestock. We continue by learning about eggs (from chickens). What is the composition of the shell? What is in the yolk, is this nutritious?
Our last activity for the morning session is Fun! Fun!! Fun!!!. Children will become detectives and tasked with solving the mystery of the missing Easter eggs
We learn about warm/cold blooded animals. We review the importance of biodiversity by taking a journey back to learn about dinosaurs (how many can you name?) and other animals are facing extinction. We then make a chart to record animals and plants we see around us.
Finally, children will learn about polymers, colloids and how they are used in consumer products. We learn about the science behind these products, after which we make individual slime to take home.
