Up, Up and Away!

Tying balloons to your house to make it fly is an enchanting idea.  Could it happen?  What really makes things go up?  And stay up? In “UP” we will explore how things go up, how they stay up and how they maneuver up there.  A little bit of nature study, a little bit of engineering, and a lot of searching for the answers to our questions.  From rockets to helium balloons, we will question, explore, discover, and create.  An exciting, active, engaging, summer science camp for elementary students who will enter grades 1-3 in the fall. Children will be engaged in a wide variety of hands-on activities designed to allow them to explore things that go up!


The camp will be held in the Sonderegger Science Center on the Edgewood College Campus. The science center is a K-16 building that serves science students of all ages. 1000 Edgewood College drive, Madison, WI

Leader Bio

I have been a kindergarten teacher for 20 years and actively involved within the education field for over 25 years.  Watching children get excited while exploring and learning from their environment, is one of my greatest rewards.  My free time is spent outside. I love to bike, hike and go camping. I live on a farmette outside of Madison and share my home with an energetic puppy along with a horse and donkey who have to stay outside.
