Jr Alchemist Camp Monday, July 18

Jr Alchemist Camp

Want to master the secrets of the universe? Create a volcanic eruption to rival Pompeii? Pass secret messages to your friends in invisible ink? Learn how to do these and much, much, more!

Junior Alchemists is designed to not only pique an interest in scientific inquiry, but to introduce students to a deeper understanding of its development and application. We allow them to see the basic principles of science in the world around them. The course is focused on a number of experiments; they are tons of fun, visually appealing, and can safely be reproduced at home for friends and family.

Some of the experiments that are part of the course include:
-Create a lava lamp
-Turn sugar into a 2 foot black snake
-Levitate a ping pong ball
-Synthesize colorful crystals from salt and sugar

Through these experiments, the instructor will teach the students about a number of
scientific principles, including:
-Chemical reactions
-Capillary Action and Bernoulli’s Principle
-Density, mass, volume
-Acids and bases

After each class, students will take home a specially designed diploma, certifying
them as an alchemical master!

Ages: 6 – 12

This camp runs Monday, July 18 – Friday, July 22, 1:00pm – 4:00pm
