Grades K-1The Circle of Life  -  Come think like an animal from “The Lion King”. Learn about what different animals eat through an active game about predators and prey. At the end of the day, you'll see how connected different animals really are! This adventure may take you outside. 

Grades 2-3Rain, Rain Go Away  -  Have you ever been caught in a rainstorm? Did you wish you had an umbrella that worked well? Tackle the team challenge of constructing an umbrella to protect you from the rain. Will your design keep you dry?

Grades 4-6:  Survival of the Fittest -  Why do populations change over time? Explore the outdoors, collect resources, and experience how the characteristics of our ecosystem influence both predators and prey. It’s the survival of the fittest!

Grades K-1:  Leaf an Impression  -  When leaves start falling, we can tell that a change is happening. Have you ever wondered why leaves change color and fall from the trees? Join us to explore different types of leaves through science and creativity, while exploring the great outdoors. 

Grades 2-3Marshmallow Engineering  -  Imagine the tallest building you’ve ever seen. How can it be so tall? Who can build the tallest, the strongest, or a unique marshmallow tower? Together we will think like engineers to design, build, shape, and test our edible marshmallow structures. 

Grades 4-6:  Angry Birds Attack  -  Have you ever wanted to play a real life game of angry birds? Engineer a catapult, launch your own “angry birds”, and assess your results. Can you convince others to use your design?
