STEAM Discovery Camp Curriculum 

K – 3:  Life of plants & Creative Chemistry

Life of Plants

Young horticulturalists unite!

In this agricultural adventure, students will learn about the importance of plants by looking at the world from a plants perspective. By observing the plants and pollinators all around us, students will get a basic introduction to the scientific method. They will learn where plants came from, how they got here, and of their symbiotic relationship with their environment. No green thumb required.

Creative Chemistry

Who says chemists aren’t creative? A fun and creative introduction to Chemistry. From instant chemical reactions to DIY slime making, this lesson will excite and entertain any young scientist! Chemistry is the study of matter. Chemists explore chemical compounds, their properties, and how they interact with one another. Students will learn and explore the principles used to identify various chemical reactions. Using common and safe compounds that can be found around your house and kitchen, students will discover this magical, microscopic world of chemical reactions and learn the properties used to describe matter.


4-8: Forensic Science & Secret Agent Science

Secret Agent Science

All spies partner with a gadget person and use science to save the world! In these informative and entertaining lessons, students will learn scientific techniques, from chemistry to computer science, to become a secret agent spy. Students will learn how to send secret messages using chemistry, how to code a message so only they can read it, and use those skills to solve a difficult treasure hunt.


Forensic Science

It’s like a crime show, but without the crime. Students will become forensic scientists by learning how science is used to solve fictional crimes. Students will learn scientific principles used by forensic scientists. They will discover how to examine a ‘crime’ scene and learn to identify useful information using various scientific processes, including fingerprinting and chemical analysis.
