Veteran’s Day Camp – Motion Maker
Rubber Band Helicopters
Campers will use simple materials such as rubber bands, craft sticks and propellers, to construct a helicopter that will fly in the air!
Magnetic Levitation Train
Using legos and rare earth magnets, campers will construct a monorail-like train, called a MagLev train. Each individual camper will construct a train and then collaborate with others to build a magnetic track where they can move their trains.
Hot Air Balloons
Campers will build a hot air balloon using a plastic bag, string, a small basket, and a candle. Campers will watch with amazement as the candle’s heat causes the plastic bag to rise lifting the candle off the ground!
