Science - The Brainery


Science - The Brainery


Grades: 5-10

The Brainery is a week of fun classes geared toward teaching science through quirky topics. The daily themes are as follows: Ghost Hunting – In this camp we will learn the science behind ghost hunting and use real ghost hunting equipment to analyze the halls of Parish. What will we find? What will we debunk? Join us to find out! Big Bang Theory – Leonard’s Research – Bazinga! Want to know what Sheldon and Leonard do all day in the lab? We will explore facets of quantum physics which are critical to Leonard’s research and will perform mini-labs which will mimic Leonard’s life in the lab. Zombie Physics – Surviving a zombie apocalypse is a multilayered task. Students will be tasked with ultimate survival and will have to use physics to save their lives! Laboratory exercises will be performed to strengthen chances of survival. Monster Genetics – Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein monster and Bram Stoker’s Dracula are amazing works of fiction. But are they fiction? Are these monsters just fantasy? Could they be genetically possible? Join the discussion and attempt to build a model of a cell from these monsters. Dry Ice – Super cool is so hot right now! When you know how to use dry ice safely, it is ridiculously cool! What is dry ice? How is it fun, creepy and useful? Grab some heavy duty mittens and find out!
