You Are The Scientist!

Has your son or daughter ever wondered what’s in their food? What is DNA? What do organs do? How do you solve a crime? Give them a taste of what a real scientist does every day. In this science camp, each day will focus on a different topic related to chemistry and biology. We will talk about nutrition and discuss the role of biomolecules in living organisms. The students will test different foods for sugar, starch, protein and vitamin C. They will also discuss the importance of DNA in life, and students will extract DNA from different fruits. They will learn about the functions of different organs, and each student will dissect a worm and a frog. Finally, the students will use their newly learned science skills to solve a crime by observing, recording and analyzing data.
