[/threecol_two] [threecol_one_last]Students of all ages put their summer breaks on hold to participate in SERI’s annual summer science camps, learning things from Newtown’s theory of relativity to the anatomy of the heart!
Each camp lasted four days, where campers explored all aspects of science; expertly lead through experiments, dissections and explosions. [/threecol_one_last]The Discovery Science Camp, for elementary students, kicked off the science camp season, followed by the Explorer Camp for middle school students and lastly, the Scholar Camp, for high school students.
The Discovery Camp was action packed with not only elementary students, but with fun science based activities as well. For example, chemistry day was filled with tie-dying, lava lamp construction and diet coke explosions. The other days were filled with frog and starfish dissections along with building and erupting paper mache volcanoes!
The Explorer Camp was just as exciting due to both the science experiments and the middle school students’ eagerness to learn. Campers built balloon cars, dissected sharks and cultured their very own bacteria!
The science camp season ended with a bang as the fresh minds of high school students tested their knowledge in the subjects of chemistry, physics and biology. The highlight of this camp was when the local coroner visited the campers and demonstrated the procedure of performing an autopsy. Overall, the SERI Summer Science Camps of 2013 were the best yet!
Our 2013 camps were a great success and we are already looking forward to 2014!
