Wicked Cool For Kids - 2020 Summer Camp
Since 2007, Wicked Cool for Kids has offered amazing kids summer programs that blend STEAM education goals with the kind of fun that kids need on summer break. We champion a great mix of focused lessons with structured play that maintains
academic integrity within a creative environment.
Our summer programs integrate STEAM components that create a rich and intentional learning environment with fun challenges and hands-on activities that reinforce grade
expectations and beyond. Most of the inquiries that we receive from parents regard the daily structure and the blend of activities, so we have provided a clear picture of how a typical day unfolds in our programs.
JULY 13-17, 2020 - MINECRAFT MANIA
Minecraft Mania is a blend of virtual learning and companion, hands-on activities that explore science and engineering using the Minecraft game. Use an interactive avatar to investigate a game-based educational environment. Engage in both computer and real world activities covering geology, engineering, physics, and biology. Learn about the properties of rocks and minerals and take home your own rock collection. Use your skills to build skyscrapers and simple machines and plant your own crops in fun experiential trials.
JULY 20-24, 2020 - WICKED COOL VET SCHOOL
Do you dream of becoming a veterinarian? Grab your lab coat, animal lovers, as we learn about our favorite furry, flying and fishy friends! Make amazing animal models, build big bones and investigate animal intestines from our favorite vertebrates: birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish. End the week with a featured live animal visit with tips for animal care and keeping pets healthy.
Dissect an owl pellet to discover a predator’s diet. Try your hand catching some invertebrates as we study insect exoskeletons, look at animal cells and parasites.
