Survival of the Futurist! Summer Camp for Ages 8-10

June 26, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - June 30, 2017 @ 4:00 PM

In a future, not far off, unimaginable challenges await! The future needs your inquiry, your questions, and your citizen science in action! Explore the future, and how you think it could be different. Get beyond surviving and start thriving! Learn to make a solar oven, filter water, build recycled structures, and the science behind it all! What happens when we run out of ice cream? Learn how to make it with chemistry! Use computer coding, virtual reality, circuits, and create simulation games of what you think our future holds. Meet scientists, designers, technologists and engineers, and collaborate with your peers!
