Blood and Guts, Brains and Bones Science
Do you want to learn all of the cool facts of blood, guts, brains, and bones? Then this summer camp is for you! For one week, you will get to explore and learn about each of these necessary body parts. Each day will be a fun-filled set of activities where we will focus on one of these exciting topics. Monday will be blood day. Tuesday will be guts day. Wednesday will be brains day. Thursday will be bones day. And on Friday, we will put it all together so you can show your family and friends what you have been up to all week. Our activities will include exploration of the daily topic, including the dissecting of organs (yes, even brains). We will create models to show how blood, guts, brains and bones work. This camp will be led by an Edgewood professor who will make sure that you have a fun and engaging experience learning about the human body and how it works. No question need go unanswered, even hard to answer questions like Why do stomachs growl? Why is poop brown? Why are veins blue? and Why do cold drinks cause brain freeze?
