LADS (Learning and Doing Science) is a program created to extend boys' science education beyond the classroom and develop their appreciation for the pursuit of scientific discovery. Experimenting alongside the students and scientists of Kenyon College, the lads of LADS will watch invisible particles, find the hidden destructive power of gummy bears, and much more! We will learn material that is fun, exciting and totally new.
Available to all middle school boys (grades 6-8). The program begins at 9:00 a.m. and goes until 1:30 p.m. Registration is free, and lunch will be provided.
Previous programs included:
What does a magician whipping a tablecloth out from under a glass have in common with bouncing balls and waves in a pool? Come try your hand at the magic trick and find out! You’ll learn how quantum mechanics affects us in the real world, and what keeps the glass on the table.
Robots and robotics are around us all the time, busily working away. Big, complicated ones were used to build your stove, car, and fridge, and now small ones are hard at work keeping them running. This Saturday, we will build and program robots ourselves! We will explore our ability to make robots interact with the environment around them. See the fun of robotics yourself!
