Spring Break Camps!

March 18-22, Life of a Scientist 

What is a scientist? What do they do? Come explore the many areas of science with NS3! Each day we will focus on a different area of science and the many different things that are involved in working in that field. Become a microbiologist and plate your own bacteria, and a polymer chemist and make slime. Learn about the scientific method of a research scientist and complete a gummy research experiment! Each day will include hands-on science activities, unstructured play, and recess outside.

March 25-29, Tinker Time

It’s tinker time! Join NS3 for a spring break camp that is all about tinkering and building. Have you ever tried painting with light? Or built a house with only dowels and elastics? Dabble with circuits to make a wand, build a roller coaster with paper, and explore your creativity as you construct different creations.
