Minds in Motion is offering two hands-on summer enrichment programs!  

Bridges and Buildings, 9am-12pm
  • Have you ever been across a bridge and wondered how it works? Get ready to get your mind in motion as you work with and take home your very own Structures Set! Learn all about buildings and bridges and how they literally support our lives! Experiment with different types of bridges and find out how their architectural design provides massive weight support. Discover all the types of forces applied and how engineers manage to reduce their effects. With your kit, you can build up to nine working models such as a house, pyramid, and various types of bridges: beam, arch, truss, cable-stayed and suspension bridge. You will study theory and learn the history of some amazing structures and historical landmarks. Come bring out the architect side of you as you enter the fascinating world of buildings and bridges and explore the magic of STEM!

Chemical Creations, 1-4pm
  • Come experience a hands-on world of fun as you conduct a variety of scientific experiments! You will make and take home a wide assortment of doodads and formations that you created all on your own. Learn and discover many different scientific concepts in an entertaining and innovative approach. Generate your own growing cube and make a shiny clean penny! Make your very own UV bracelet and watch it react to the sun. Learn all about energy and molecules, create a crazy bouncy glob from glue, and some scary green slime! You will also get to witness some really cool scientific demonstrations from your instructor. Watch snow being created and feel how cold it is! Experience a really powerful magnet, a cool blue light, a soda explode, and many other exciting experiments in this fascinating and educational workshop!
  • Running 1-4pm for $160. Register for this and Bridges and Buildings for full day with lunch supervision for $315.
