Sticky Slippery Messy Mix-y Textures

Follow your curiosity this week and enjoy the texture – and sometimes taste! – of a good mess. Whether slopping up slime together, mixing up homemade bouncy balls, watercoloring without hands, forming snowballs in summer, or testing the total tastiness of your own soda pop concoction, everyone will love observing, exploring, and experiencing the world of the sticky slippery messy mix-y.

ScienceWorks Explorers
Shannon Troy and Liz Clift
Join ScienceWorks’ staff outside under the blue and yellow tent for a week of wacky wild fun.  Each day brings a new and exciting theme.  During Where the Wild Things Are, you’ll learn about animals as we introduce you to Beardy the Bearded Dragon, Lizzy the Water Dragon, and other “wild” creatures.  Messy Chemistry Day will include experiments like making slime and watching colors explode in milk.  Oh the places you’ll go on Seussology Day as we read silly stories and do fun Seuss-inspired activities, like making your own oobleck, planting a seed and smelling something too small to be seen. On Einstein Imagination Day, dress in your favorite costume and go on an awesome adventure that only you can imagine.  We’ll wrap up the week with Water Play Day which includes not only the science of water, but water balloon tosses, Slip and Slide mania and a trip to Garfield Park!

Don’t Bump the Glump 
Shannon Troy
The sidewalk ends at ScienceWorks as we enjoy the whimsical words and illustrations of Shel Silverstein.  Using his poetic inspiration and art, we will discover a world of wonder and science by constructing our own musical instruments, silly sock puppets, poetic play dough characters, and talkative telephones to tell our own rhythmic rhymes.  We will discover the wondrous world of worms and other interesting creatures below our feet, grow our own plant pet, and create our own class poem complete with one-of-a-kind student illustrations.  This camp will be nothing short of A Giraffe in Half.
