Welcome to The Launch Zoo! Follow in the footsteps of a zookeeper as we visit extraordinary animals and discover the science behind what makes them special. By simulating a stroll through the grounds at the fictitious Launch Zoo, campers tour exhibits ranging from butterflies to bears. It’s feeding time! Let’s head over to the Savanna exhibit and learn about the carnivorous lion, herbivorous giraffe, and omnivorous ostrich. Wondering about locomotion!? Let’s investigate how snakes slither, lemurs leap, and falcons fly. Questions about camouflage!? Let’s create a take-home model of a color-changing chameleon! Each day we examine animals that reveal unique and extreme adaptations. Kids begin to understand how the environment can shape a species’ appearance and diet, all while raising awareness of the importance of conservation efforts worldwide

Calling all mini-sleuths! Pull out your oversized magnifying glasses and join us as we solve some epic mysteries! In this camp kids explore how science is the key to great detective work! Using a combination of the principles of physics, chemistry, and biology, campers employ critical thinking techniques to help them crack new cases every day. In search of that hidden clue? Build yourself a UV flashlight! Need to spy on those behind you? Break out your rearview mirror eyeglasses! Curiosity and logic lead the way as we collect evidence, investigate, and problem solve – all in the name of science. Sherlock Holmes would be proud!

Week 8: I Wanna Be… An Explorer!
Onward ho!! Let’s travel the globe and explore unique sites to learn about the many wonders our planet holds. Campers journey deep into the earth to witness how volcanoes formed islands, dive to the deepest depths of the ocean to discover how tectonic plates formed the Mariana trench, and swing along treetops of a rainforest to explore this amazing biome! From recreating cave art to building motorized tornado spinners, this camp offers exciting hands-on projects that reinforce the scientific topics of the day. Just like past explorers such as Magellan and Sacagawea, our little adventurers take bold steps to make their very own worldly discoveries.
Additional Topics Include: Oceanography, Cartography, Layers of the Earth, Rock Cycle, Tectonic Plates, Volcanoes, Water Cycle, Weather
Week 10: I Wanna Be… An Animator!
From Mickey Mouse to Paw Patrol, children have long been mesmerized by their favorite cartoons. In this creative camp, kids use coding and off-screen animation to bring their own imaginative character to life! During the design phase, our mini-cartoonists enter the drawing workshop and use their handmade tracing tables to personalize their own characters. Once on paper, each camper catapults their creation into a series of scenes and develops an animated story! From 2D hand drawings to stop motion sequencing to digital animations using ScratchJr, Launch’s kids utilize various tools and techniques that have been used over the years to capture the imaginations of viewers around the world!
Additional Topics Include: Character Design, Sequencing, 2-D and 3-D Design, Future of Animation, and Computer Programming
