Check out what students did at The Extreme Science! Adventures in Science 2013 camp

The Extreme Science! Adventures in Science 2013 camp, sponsored by the Department of Chemistry & Physical Sciences, ran June 10-13, Monday through Thursday, from 9am to noon in Mother Adelaide Hall (MAH) 118.  Sixteen students entering fifth through seventh grade enjoyed learning about nanomaterials, polymers, electricity, forces, astronomy, and fossils; conducting inquiry with worms; and building a composting bin.  Some of the photos show an “egg drop” that was performed with student designed protective holders for the eggs.
