Shark Week

Tia McLean
Hammerhead, Great White, Mako, oh my! Learn about your favorite sharks this summer at ScienceWorks. Make a miniature shark, explore real shark jaws, and go on a shark scavenger hunt. End the week showing what you know in a shark show.
June 24 – June 28
Little Foxes
Coyote Trails

Coyote Trails  
This class is based entirely on the youngsters. General areas of play are:  animal study - through body movement, tracking, performance, and exploring animal habitats; and the philosophy of playing with the Earth - taught through storytelling and games.  We teach entirely through experiential learning techniques, helping children to naturally explore and learn through the sights, tracks, sounds, and smells of nature.
July 8 – July 12

Mary Ann Perry
It’s Just Water! Swim on over for watery adventures with bubbles, waves, fountains, and more. Figure out why some things float while others sink. Build a boat and make a diver that sinks on command. You might get a little wet!
July 15 – July 19
smART Science

Mary Ann Perry
Science and nature will combine to inspire our daily projects. Get ready for everything from sun catchers to making bouncy balls, to painting a mural with our own homemade fingerprint. We’ll search outside for insects that we’ll replicate out of our old socks. Let’s make art and explore science at the same time!
July 22 – July 26
Avian Artists

Jeanine Moy  Klamath Bird Observatory
Did you know that the blue in a birds' feather is not from a pigment but from a microscopic structure? And now scientists have used this knowledge to make lasers? Birds have inspired artists, scientists and engineers for centuries, and now it's your turn! Campers will meet birds of all colors, shapes, and behaviors to inspire paintings, sculpture, music and their own practical inventions. Campers will explore a different type of bird-inspired beauty, biology, or building each day.
July 29 – August 2
The Wonderful World of Wizards

Naomi Caspe
Be a wizard this summer and learn amazing true secrets of the universe in our creative wizard workshop. Apprentice wizards will build and make props, learn theatrical face painting and juggling, and work with live animals. Come be part of the magic!
August 5 – August 9
The Secret Garden

Toni DiMaggio
What’s lurking behind the lavender and resting under the rocks in our gardens? Come explore the magic of a garden and get to know all the living things we can find there.  We will observe and collect data in the ScienceWorks Bear Garden and share what we learn with real scientists. Learn all the tricks and traits our garden critters use to survive and invent ways to keep your very own garden growing strong!
August 12 – August 16
Animal Adventures

Jessica Fitzsimmons
Explore the jungle or dive to the depths of the sea.  Plan a trip to the Antarctic to see some penguins or pack some water for a trip to the desert.  What animals will we encounter?  It will be a different animal adventure every day.
August 19 – August 23
Dig’n the Past

Jessica Fitzsimmons
What did the world look like when dinosaurs roamed the Earth?  Was the T-Rex really the most feared dinosaur?  How do paleontologists dig up fossils?  Let’s spend a week being dinosaur detectives.
August 26 – August 30
Dr. Seuss’ Science

Help the Lorax save the world. Learn about tiny creatures with Horton Hears a Who. Explore states of matter with Bartholomew and the Oobleck. Check out baby animals with Horton Hatches an Egg.
