LSC Science Camp doesn’t only happen during the summer!
Last year, we introduced our brand new fall session of Science Camp, held during the NJEA conference when many kids in New Jersey are off from school.
Our fall session of Science Camp returned this year on Nov. 7 and 8, and this time with a special Angry Birds theme! Students in grades 1-5 were invited to join us for courses exploring technology, engineering, and physics concepts based on our new exhibition, Angry Birds Universe: The Art & Science Behind a Global Phenomenon.
Both days of camp were jam-packed with activities. The grade 1 students (“Explorers”) learned to construct catapults and rockets to knock down King Pig’s castle and save Angry Bird Island.
The grade 2-3 students (“Scientists”) learned the engineering design process to build and test a device to transport an Angry Bird to its nest.
The grade 4-5 students (“Innovators”) used 3D print technology to design and build a flock of Angry Birds, and engineered and tested a slingshot based on the principles of force and motion.
All camp sessions came together for some fun group activities, like “Hungry Hungry Campers.” In this real-life version of the “Hungry Hungry Hippos” game, the campers tried to grab as many balloons as possible in a limited amount of time while riding on carts.
We had a blast! Thanks to everyone who joined us for the fall session of LSC Science Camp.
