9:00 AM - 12:00 PM    Minds in Motion Summer Workshop - 6-in-1 Space Fleet Robot
6-IN-1 SPACE FLEET ROBOT AGES 7-11Build and take home your very own Solar Space Fleet Robot! The Solar Space Fleet Kit is an innovative solar powered science kit that can transform into six different lunar modules. Using your own mini solar panel, watch as direct sunlight brings the kits to life! Come and create six different working models including a Space Station, Space Rover, Space Explorer, Astronaut, Space Shuttle, and Space Dog. Watch as it moves around and speeds up or slows down depending on the intensity of light as you learn, experiment, and have fun with solar power! Each complete model can also be powered by your very own mini rechargeable battery. Come join in this super fun solar space adventure!CSI CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATIONS AGES 7-11Come join our Minds In Motion Crime Team in this fun and interesting program! We will provide you with all the tools you need to become your very own crime scene investigator. Learn all about forensics, searching for evidence, and gathering clues and bring home your very own detective kit! Working in groups, you will conduct many science experiments in our crime lab to solve the mysteries at hand. You will learn all about fingerprinting and how to classify them and bring home your very own fingerprint classification sheet! You will also perform chemical analyses and observations working with powders, liquids, and much much more! Be amazed at how much science plays a part in solving a crime. Come ready with your thinking caps and be prepared to use all the skills necessary to solve the crime of the century and help save the Minds In Motion Laboratory! We need you!
