Monday July 12th – Friday, July 16th from 9am – 1:30pm
On Zoom and Google Classroom
Daily Stem Camp Breakdown
Each day set-up your scientist to Zoom into the morning call! We will start off with some stretches, safety secrets and socializing, before moving into the science lesson! Your scientist will review the daily experiment with us before logging off and heading to their at home laboratory!
Once in the Lab, your scientist will follow the lab sheet directions and conduct their experiments and fill out their lab report. We would love to see their success and laboratory experiences; upload a video or photo to share with their fellow science colleagues. If your scientist needs some help they can also Zoom in or post questions on our Google classroom.
After lunch, we will jump back on Zoom to debrief the day! We will recap our experiments and share in our success! We will have a short story and then finish with your video recap of the day! We hope to see your scientist there!
Once you Register watch your email for printable Daily Lab Result Sheets and a list of materials your scientist will need for the week!
On Monday, scientists will learn about structural integrity and bridges before looking at which shapes will help us build the best marshmallow tower!
Boats and Buoyancy
On Tuesday, scientists will explore boats and motors. We will look at flotation and how displacment allows heavy items to float and not sink with the help of tinfoil boats and pebbles, and make a motor using potential energy.
On Wednesday, we will travel through time when trebuchets were much more common. By building our own we will learn about mechanics and how machines can do work for us.
On Thursday, scientists will look at the sun and how amazing it is. We will learn survival skills and make a yummy snack all with the help of the sun
On Friday, scientists will look at the air all around us. We will talk about how it takes up space and we will look at ways we can harness air to have fun
PointKids Camp Philosophy
Your scientist will learn right from wrong in order to make wise decisions both in and outside of the lab. It’s also here where discovering the rules and objectives of the experiments fosters a love for science.
The teachings of science compliment children’s natural curiosity and help them to develop important life skills. The science experiments and activities improves critical thinking, focus, curiosity, and teamwork.
Scientists learn that their self-worth and identity are not defined by failed or perfected experiments or even great inventions. Through intentional, biblical character lessons, your scientist will learn about life, values, and how God sees them.
On our PointKids Calls, your scientist has the opportunity to foster healthy relationships with his or her research-mates through symbiosis and knowledge sharing, while learning the importance of putting others’ needs above his or her own.
