Summer@IMSA – Grades 5-6

Space-Weather (New!)

IMSA’s weather forecast for Summer 2019…? “Cloudy with a chance of meteors!” We are hosting a camp that will explore the space and weather phenomena that have fascinated humans for centuries. Students will have to “think like an astronaut (or aerospace engineer or meteorologist)” in order to take on a series of space/weather-related challenges including how to design space gear that can withstand the harsh environs of outer space, capture lightning in a bottle, and use chemical reactions to launch rockets. Along the way, there will be some close encounters with glowing galactic goo, swirling satellites, and helpful hovercrafts. Come join us for a week that will be out-of-this world!

E2 : Engineering Explorations

Design, tinker, build, test—then do it again! Working in teams, participants will engage in hands-on activities as they explore the engineering design process through electrical, chemical, and biomedical engineering. Students will design, build, and race boats, build a solar powered car, and test the principles of force and motion through a week-long Rube Goldberg project culminating in a competition.
