Pre-K: Storybook Science
Have a young scientist at home who also loves books? This is the perfect camp to let their inner scientist or engineer shine. We will use science from some of their favorite storybook characters like Rapunzel and the 3 Billy Goats Gruff to pull inspiration and build a boat to travel across the sea or engineer towers and bridges! We’ll explore topics from “things that go” to weather to the stars!
