2014 The Science of Art!

….a week-long summer science experience for Central Wisconsin students who have completed Kindergarten to those entering 6th grade. The Science of Art will provide participants with activities and experiments ranging from optical illusions to use of natural dyes and materials in art. We invite your budding scientist to join us as we explore eye anatomy, light, color, and fiber art, among other visual arts and science during our week of active inquiry-based science. Camp will be held Monday, June 16th through Friday, June 20th at Newman Catholic Early Childhood Center at St. Michael's Parish.  

2013 Science of Sports
Come experience sports from a scientific perspective as we study topics as diverse as how muscles work to the design of a baseball bat. Gymnastics, soccer, raquet sports, football and more will be experienced and observed by campers who participate in The Science of Sports.
