Physics & Engineering

June 12-16, 2017 | 9 am to 3 pm « Back

Why can planes and rockets fly? Why do soccer balls and baseballs curve? How do musical instruments make sound? Exploring physics can help us come to understand the how and the why. Students will build rockets, planes, circuits and a variety of other hands-on activities while learning how to use some basic tools along the way. Be ready to design, build and rethink designs as you learn more about how objects interact and different tIMG_0183ypes of energy.
