Water Wars (Grades 5 and up)

Prepare to get wet in this water soaked engineering based class. It’s the middle of summer and it’s hot, so lets cool off by building various gadgets that squirt, spray, stream and launch water in a variety of ways. Students will explore the basics of pressure, fluid flow, and engineering design as we build air powered super soakers, water balloon launchers, water rockets and similar devices designed to strike fear in the hearts of siblings and neighborhood bullies. So grab your bathing suits and be prepared to get wet in this fun filled, hands on exploration of high powered water toys.  You get to keep your water toy designs after camp!
