Mad Science Day Camp: STEAM Exploration

Start the day exploring Space –  Blast off with science! Test soil for "Martian" life. Get a taste for space and eat like the astronauts when you make your own space snack. Learn how to throw water around and stay dry at the same time. Take a walk through the Solar System, catch food in a zero gravity game, and model the Hero steam engine to see how spinning can generate power for a spaceship.  After lunch,  Jr. Engineers - Structures are all around you, everywhere you look and everywhere you go! Join a team of scientists to inspect the elements of structures as you build, test, and yes, even walk on real eggs. Climb inside a geodesic dome that you construct with fellow campers. Build a Soma cube puzzle that may even stump your parents!
