Math, Marvels & More
Math, Marvels & More!
Session 1 – June 14 – 25
Liquid States, Number Traits & Creative Greats
Can you count without numbers or calculate without place value? Have you ever interpreted a Peruvian quipu or added in Babylonian? Math didn’t just happen; it had to be invented. Match wits with the ancients as we explore number systems from all corners (and time periods) of the globe.
Discover what can creep up the side of a glass, create its own drops, rise above the rim of a glass without spilling and expand as it freezes. Can we make it snow in the summertime? Fossilize raindrops? Create a chemical reaction with water? The scientific words we’ll use – chromatography, surface tension skippers – all measure up to FUN!
Dive into the deep sea and design your own sea monsters for our nautical seascape! Explore the kaleidoscopic depths of aquatic creativity – drama, 3D art and more! All the while, looking for the answer to the ultimate life question: How do you get inside a bubble?
