Did you enjoy cool science the first time around? Join again this winter break as we continue our exploration of the science of all things cool!

Winter Camp 2013: Aha Science
Each day of this camp will give you your own Aha! Moments as we explore the wonders of science. 

Monday, December 23: Icy Science
Explore the special properties of snow, ice, and cold temperatures. Experiment with how your skin feels cold, explore tricks to freezing and melting ice, learn how salt can be used to create sticky ice, and build your own igloo.

Tuesday, December 24: Winter Crafts
Winter is a great time to get your crafting on! Make solar bead jewelry, design a gingerbread house, create an indoor snowman, and get creative with candy canes.

Thursday, December 26: Frozen in Space
Journey with us to the outer edges of our solar system as we explore the ice-cold worlds and objects of space. Create your own comet, explore the cold surfaces of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, and examine the different temperatures of stars.

Friday, December 27: Flying Fur
Heading North for the Winter? Then you'll need to grab a coat! Come learn how animals adapt to the winter months. We’ll explore the hair vs fur debate, practice our flying formation to migrate like birds, and learn how bears and other animals sleep during this chilly time.

Monday, December 30: Winter Olympics Science
With the Winter Olympics just over a month away, use this day to bone up on the science behind your favorite sports. Learn the type of exercises Olympians must do to build their endurance, participate in a student vs student curling match, learn how to make the perfect hockey slap shot, and the science that explains why ice skaters can spin so fast.

Tuesday, December 31: Frozen Treats
Cold temperatures affect different foods in fun ways. Join us as we explore the science of chilling and help us conduct experiments while concocting cold and delicious treats.

Thursday, January 2: Arctic Action - Part 1
How do we know what we know about the Arctic region? Come with us to the top of the world, and learn about the Arctic ocean, ice, the atmosphere, and the tools that we use to understand how it all works. You will also get to meet the Museum's own Artic Explorer, Lindsay Bartholomew!
