Week 1, October 4: Glow-in-the-Dark City – Take geometry to the next level! Learn to recognize some important 3-D shapes, then build a giant skyscraper of glow sticks and Styrofoam balls. Flick off the lights and see your creation.
Week 2, October 11: Walk on the Wild Side – How do insects and animals run so fast with all those extra legs? They use math! We’ll run, walk and gallop like animals to see how it all works.
Week 3, October 18: Funny Money – We’ll bet money you’ll love this one! Have fun weighing coins, buying prizes with them, and finally winning them in an extreme version of Rock, Paper, Scissors!
Week 4, October 25: Beach Ball Party – This is a party you won’t want to miss! You’ll use our star-spangled beach ball to play Flying Fives Volleyball, then go gaga swatting the ball against targets to score points.
