The PS Science campers were fortunate to have the help of an amazing circuits and programming educator, Debra Ansell. Debra taught us all how to work with breadboards, Arduinos, and begin to unlock the potential in programming.
Bubbles aren’t just for babies- the scientists at camp tested and discovered some strategies for creating truly amazing, phenomenal, incredible BUBBLES!
We had an amazing day at camp with guest Electrical Engineer, Amir, who led us through the steps to build a circuit to use a laser to control our propellor-powered cars! These young scientists learned how to trouble-shoot their circuits and improve the function of their cars. And of course, the day ended with some races!
Scientists from a local pharmaceutical research lab, Agensys, Inc., visited the camp on multiple days to share their fields of expertise with the campers. We had an eye surgeon lead us in a cow eye dissection, chemists show us how to turn a penny silver and gold, and biochemists help us extract the DNA from a strawberry. What a great way to learn! Thank you Agensys!
PS Science students were invited to attend a two week day camp, designed to stimulate their budding science and engineering interests and provide opportunities for expanding learning. We’ve been digging into a rich variety of topics and having a lot of fun!
