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!

Crime Scene Investigation, 1-4pm
  • Come and join our Minds In Motion Crime Team in this fun and interesting workshop!  We will provide you with all the tools you need to become your very own crime scene investigator!  Learn all about forensics, searching for evidence, and gathering clues.  
  • Working in groups, you will conduct many science experiments in our crime labs to solve the mysteries at hand!  As young detectives in training, you will learn all about fingerprinting and how to classify them.  Bring home your very own fingerprint classification sheet!  You will also perform chemical analyses and observations working with powders, liquids, and much much more!  Be amazed at how much science plays a part in solving a crime.  Come ready with your thinking caps and be prepared to use all the skills necessary to solve the crime of the century and help save the Minds In Motion Laboratory!  We need you!
  • Running 1-4pm for $155. Register for this and Bridges and Buildings for full day with lunch supervision for $315.
