Spectacular Space

Travel through our solar system, past the Kuiper Belt and beyond! Students will learn how stars are born by “collapsing” a model nebula, find patterns in galaxies, and design, build, and test their own spacecraft.

Coding with Color

Learn to code with indi by Sphero! Using color as commands, beginner computational thinking, and problem solving, students will design their own course for their “car” to travel.

Exploring Ecosystems

Be an aquatic ecologist for a day! Students will learn how organisms rely on each other in an ecosystem, then focus on a local aquatic ecosystem. With a small group, they will test water samples from Chilhowee Park, and determine if the water is balanced enough for the organisms that call it home.
