Science Explorers Sessions
October 1 – October 29, 2021
Captain Planet said it best – the power is yours! In this fun superhero take on sustainability science, explorers will become planeteers. We will make “plastic” toys out of milk, take a micro-safari through a compost bin, meet local wildlife, and more. Early learners will stretch their scientific skills while having fun and finding the inner sustainability superhero!
Build It Up
November 5 – December 10, 2021 (No class 11/26)
Teeter Totters (fulcrums and levers), skewer structures (strong shapes), and sending marbles down ramps (kinetic and potential energy) are just a few of the physics concepts that will be explored by science explorers in this session. Participants will use the process used by engineers in designing, building, testing, and reflecting. If your child enjoys building and tinkering then you won’t want to miss this chance for her or him to build it up.
January 7 – February 4, 2022
This program is for animal enthusiasts! Budding zookeepers will have a chance to meet many of the animals that call CuriOdyssey home. Through hands- and minds-on science activities, they learn about how animals are adapted to their environment and how we take care of their needs at CuriOdyssey. Highlights will include designing a habitat to care for their own resident CuriOdyssey snail, helping staff keep our animals entertained, and using their senses to learn about animals first-hand.
February 11 – March 11, 2022
Science and food are an awesome recipe for fun and learning. Make ice cream, taste things that are salty or sweet, and dabble with the density of different cooking ingredients. Participants will be using our measuring cups, bowls, and utensils as we get our hands into the chemistry of solutions that are slippery, sticky, and slimy.
April 15 – Mary 13, 2022
Air, water, light and soil are all-natural phenomena that constantly alter the place in which we live. Harnessing the energy of the wind, observing water as it moves from high to low, and investigating the weather at Coyote Point Park help students discover the phenomena that make and shape our earth. Pack your parka and umbrella (it may become a kite) and join us as we explore!
