summer camp deep sea at New Morning School, Plymouth.

Where engineering and green science meet

Who: Students entering grades 2 – 6

When: July 8-12, from 9 AM – Noon or 9 AM – 3 PM. Extended hours: 7:30 AM – 6 PM

The Deep Sea: Learn everything about the Deep Sea. Start with determining saltwater density and making the layers of the ocean. Try your hand at shark buoyancy and learn why whales stay warm. Can you make a tide pool?

Chemical Reactions: Why is the Statue of Liberty green? Find out by experimenting with a penny. Clean pennies by testing different substances. Does hot or cold water travel faster? Participate in the walking water experiment.

Everything Outside: Spend the day outside learning about everything STEAM and Green. Start with solar s’mores and create a dirt battery. Make a human sundial and ice volcanoes. Check out your very own ecosystem and meet the tiniest critters.

Environmental Engineering: First, test your hand-made water filter and make a cloud in a jar. Can you make a wind turbine of your own design? Make a power boat out of recycled and natural materials. How fast can it go?

The “A” in STEAM…:stands for the Arts. Immerse yourself in projects made from found items and represent artistically all that you’ve learned.

Immersion: On Wednesday, visit Green Living Science, a recycling center. Then experience an art park made of recyclables. Finally, experience a hands-on activity related to conserving our resources.

Half-day students are picked up at 3:00 pm.

Parents, join us for a STEAMY Green Science Expo on Friday at 11:30 AM.
