Young innovators have a blast every day doing fun, creative projects while putting their knowledge to use. Our students become immersed in their challenges while gaining confidence that failure is the path to success.
Every week in the school year has an engaging theme, and every day they complete a project with greatest pride. Students learn to work collaboratively in brainstorm sessions and white-boarding their design process – skills that will boost their path to success in the workplace of the future.
*transportation from school is not available for the starter membership. The school must be within a 10 mile radius of Lab 11235.
Week 1: Candy Chefs
8/30 – 9/3
We turn complex chemistry concepts into a hands-on learning experience with candy science. Learn about sugar molecules, discover the crystallization process, and experiment with the chemical reactions involved in making all the sugary treats you love. There’s nothing better than learning science and getting to eat your experiment afterwards!
Week 2: Make It Fly
9/7 – 9/10
How does an airplane fly? How does a drone work? What makes a kite stay in the air? These are all questions we will answer this week as we learn about aerodynamics. You will investigate how fast or slowly objects move by flying drones. Use your creative skills to build objects that fly and test them out in our wind-powered tunnel to see how long they can glide.
Week 3: Indiana Jones Adventure
9/13 – 9/17
Become an adventurer just like Indiana Jones! Live like real life archaeologists to discover artifacts, dig for fossils, and solve puzzles that explore the history of ancient civilization. Through interactive activities, you will practice the scientific method by asking questions, trial and error, documenting findings and getting a little dirty.
Week 4: Around the World in 5 Days
9/20 – 9/24
Travel to the seven wonders of the world right from Lab! Use virtual reality goggles to travel to different countries every day and see the wonders. We will explore different cultural buildings, geography, and the histories of inventions from around the world that contributed to the engineering concepts we know today. Complete challenges and earn stamps in your passport.
Week 5: Sound of Music
9/27 – 10/1
We’re not talking about the classic movie here, but the actual energy produced from vibrations that become the sounds we hear, like rain pounding on the roof or wind whistling through the hills. By making your own music and exploring vibrations, you will discover the properties of sound, the way sound travels, and the senses involved in how we perceive sound (hint: it’s more than just hearing).
Week 6: Plant Science
10/4 – 10/8
Become a botanist and explore the beautiful world of plants and flowers with plant science this week. Dig your hands into the soil of nature to explore the biology of plants, how they grow and how they are sustained in different environments. By investigating the process of composting and hydroponics, we will build our very own Lab garden to care for throughout the year.
Week 7: Electricity and Circuits
10/11 – 10/15
Did you know you can light up a bulb with a potato? From lightning and static electricity to conductors and circuits, this week we will learn how electricity is generated and used in our everyday lives. Through interactive experiments and hands-on instruction, you will be challenged to build your own simple circuits to power an object.
Week 8: Monster Mash
10/18 – 10/22
Calling all ghouls, vampires, werewolves and zombies – we are having a monster bash! Explore the world of design and stagecraft as you create your own monster costumes and put on a monster show. Experience simple concepts of engineering such as measurements, patterns and geometry all while letting your imagination and creativity run wild.
Week 9: Candy Delivery
10/25 – 10/29
What’s Halloween without candy? This week we will learn about the physics of simple machines such as pulley systems that have been used by civilizations throughout history. By incorporating the design of mechanical devices, use your own engineering skills to build a character and a pulley system that you will then use to deliver your special Halloween treats.
Week 10: Water World
11/1 – 11/5
Water play gives students the opportunity to think creatively, test their ideas and problem solve as they explore how things sink, float, splash, and sprinkle. Dive into concepts of physics, buoyancy and the energy produced by water. Work together with your teammates to build a boat that actually floats on our water table and races with the wind.
Week 11: Mad Scientist
11/8 – 11/12
We’re all a little mad. This week you will conduct cool experiments that involve mixing chemicals and seeing reactions happen right in front of your eyes. We will be doing more than the average homemade volcano as you will get to decide your own projects. Slime, oobleck, elephant toothpaste, electric dough – the possibilities are endless!
Week 12: Holiday Chef
11/15 – 11/19
With Thanksgiving around the corner, this week we will explore foods and traditions from other cultures. Use virtual reality to experience real-life celebrations in other countries. Through cooking and experimenting with flavors, you will make your own cultural dish and then invite your families to a special feast at the end of the week.
Explore all the cool stuff in Lab. This is the time where students get to try new things or build their own project.
Never miss another opportunity for creativity. You’ll be the first to know when we have a new class or camp so you can get first dibs and secure your child’s spot.
