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. For up to date announcements, Like us on Facebook! www.facebook.com/learninganddoingscience
You’re inside a box, and the only thing you can see is a slit of light. Can you tell if it’s sunlight or a street lamp? No? Can you see particles that are too fast and small for any camera to catch? We’ll build tools to help you do both, and solve other problems as we explore the darker side of light. Registration is now closed.
KABOOM! The boys discovered some of the hidden powers of common household items. How can you tell if a liquid has enough acid in it to burn through a table? You don’t want to touch it to find out, but a food in your fridge can tell you. We’ll find the hidden destructive power of gummy bears, and make and eat delicious instant ice cream. They also learned that chemistry can be cool!
