Weeks 1-5: I Wanna Be… A Detective!

Calling all mini-sleuths! Pull out your oversized magnifying glasses and join us as we solve some epic mysteries! In this camp kids explore how science is the key to great detective work! Using a combination of the principles of physics, chemistry, and biology, campers employ critical thinking techniques to help them crack new cases every day. In search of that hidden clue? Build yourself a UV flashlight! Need to spy on those behind you? Break out your rearview mirror eyeglasses! Curiosity and logic lead the way as we collect evidence, investigate, and problem solve – all in the name of science. Sherlock Holmes would be proud!

Additional Topics Include: Magnetism, Optics, Ciphers, Magnification, Image Distortion, Phosphorescence, Prisms, Refraction, Fingerprints

Week 6-10: I Wanna Be… An Animator!

From Mickey Mouse to Paw Patrol, children have long been mesmerized by their favorite cartoons. In this creative camp, kids use coding and off-screen animation to bring their own imaginative character to life! During the design phase, our mini-cartoonists enter the drawing workshop and use their handmade tracing tables to personalize their own characters. Once on paper, each camper catapults their creation into a series of scenes and develops an animated story! From 2D hand drawings to stop motion sequencing to digital animations using ScratchJr, Launch’s kids utilize various tools and techniques that have been used over the years to capture the imaginations of viewers around the world!

Additional Topics Include: Character Design, Sequencing, 2-D and 3-D Design, Future of Animation, and Computer Programming

Double, double, toil and trouble; fire burn, and cauldron bubble! Launch’s junior scientists explore the magic of the molecular world of chemistry in this exciting camp that’s full of actions and reactions! Mystifying topics such as phosphorescence, oxidation, and chromatography are unmasked as we reveal the science through projects such as potion vials, magic wands, and foamy explosions. Kids are mesmerized by the colorful fizzing formulas that make up the world around us, forcing them to ask the question: is it magic, or is it science?
