Do you like to mix ingredients and create your own interesting concoctions? Then this camp is for you! You will have a chance to examine how the physical and chemical properties of materials can change as you create your own play-dough in the Making Lots of Dough activity! During the Chromatography session you will analyze chemical properties of ink and see how one color can be separated into the primary colors that create it. You will also have a chance to use your artistic side to create a Sun Painting using only sun print paper, an object of your choice, and the ultra-violet rays of the sun! And last, but not least, you will make your own Ice Cream! Observe how ice absorbs energy to melt and how particles added to water will lower the freezing point. Plus – you get to take the recipe home so you can make ice cream any time you want! Come and join your friends for exploring the chemical and physical properties of materials in a fun and hands-on setting!
