THE CAMP FOCUS THIS WEEK

Morning Focus
Science of Minecraft: Chemistry and Physics
Do you have a curiosity about science, chemistry and physics? This program was created to teach participants about these exciting STEM topics using Minecraft as the laboratory to design, craft and test experiments through virtual simulations. In our physics lessons, participants will learn about the science of kinetic and potential energy, speed, acceleration, and gravity. Our chemistry lessons will teach participants about atoms, molecules and elements. The chemistry labs will explore the periodic table and create tests to see how the chemicals react – participants will create compounds using molecules and focus on “reactions” by creating things like sparklers, glowsticks, and floating balloons. In this program participants work toward building the ultimate scientific laboratory in our virtual campground to build and test scientific concepts through science-themed builds. No prior experience is necessary! All skill levels are welcome.
Afternoon Focus
Minecraft Missions
Are you ready to join a team of pro-builders? Join our multiplayer servers to develop your construction, leadership and team skills to accomplish unique missions as part of a group. Use your imagination to collaborate with your fellow team members to design and build a large-scale Minecraft Mission; no two challenges are alike. Creativity, critical thinking and communication will be your keys to success! This offering can be taken multiple times, each session is unique.
