This week long camp is comprised of some of the best and most popular experiments from the past years of SMILE Camp. Campers will explore a wide variety of subjects including physics, chemistry, and numerous engineering fields through hands on experimentation. Each day, campers will engage in two experiments in the morning and two experiments in the afternoon. Campers will learn about common science concepts relating to heat, electricity, the transformation of energy, electromagnetic Waves, light & color, chemical bonds and more. Campers will walk away with the know-how to take their academic knowledge, merged with the real world, and take fun science to the next level! Experiments will include 3D printing and prototyping, growing bacteria cultures, clock reactions, chemiluminescence and electroluminescence. Liquid crystals, the secret behind LCD screens, will be created and the nature of ferrofluid will be explored. This camp has everything from molecular gastronomy in the form of spherification to molding a spoon out of gallium.
