Drones, robots and experiments – oh my!
Today marked the first full day of TechnoCamp, where the campers got to experience the latest technology and gadgets. This year, the campers, aka young scientists, are creating a digital science book.
They all chose topics that interested them, and will be conducting experiments and research to support it. Topics so far include bugs, underwater life, the weather, our sun & moon, and living things. These great topics will be supported by using adapted microscopes, scientific sensors, telescopes, robots, and many others technologies. We can’t wait to see how their projects develop.
Also today in science, the young scientists got to experiments with water beads, and how they react with different solutions. Cola, dish detergent, and sugar water are a few things they tried.
This afternoon, we also got to witness a drone demonstration. This high-flying machine wowed the crowd, while taking some amazing footage of the campers and Camp Grassick.
