Code: Museum 01 Exploring Space - June 22-26, 10am–2pm
Ages:  6-11 years old (activities will reflect age of students and will be grouped according to their level with instructors and aides) (30 maximum number of students)

Learn about the moon, planets, stars and the universe through interactive play, as older children help design space exploration vehicles and tools. Each day the students will learn about a different celestial body and discover the science behind space exploration. At the end of the week students will work as a group to use their exploration vehicles and new knowledge to “blast off” into space.

 Learn about elements, minerals and rocks through crafts and interactive play. Students will examine and discover the unique properties of elements and minerals, learn what common elements and minerals are used for, and take a tumble through the rock cycle. Fossils will be explored under Sedimentary Rocks. The students will also become Junior Geologists after they go rock “hunting” in the museum

Dinosaurs and other Fossils

Code: Museum 04 – Fossils and Time – July 22nd-26th, 10am-2pm
Ages:  6-11 years old (activities will reflect age of students and will be grouped according to their level with instructors and aides) (30 maximum number of students)

Become a time-traveler by taking a walk through different time periods in Earth’s history! Through interactive play, museum exploration and crafts students will learn how fossilization occurs and explore the different types of organisms that roamed the earth in pre-historic times. Students also create their own model fossil collection to become Junior Paleontologists.


M-F
10 am-2 pm
Chemistry

Code: Museum 05 –  10am-2pm
Ages:  6-11 years old (activities will reflect age of students and will be grouped according to their level with instructors and aides) (30 maximum number of students)

Mammoths, mastodons, camelids, horses and sloths, oh my! Students will take a step backwards into the Bay Area’s “recent” history. Through interactive play, crafts and museum exploration students will discover the extinct giants that called the Bay Area home and create maps to navigate Bay Area’s Ice-Age geography. Students will be able to see and touch real fossils of ice-age animals found in Fremont and create a collection of fossil tooth models, just like grown-up paleontologists!
