STEM Summer Programs participants learned all about pirates and boats, life under the sea, kitchen chemistry, and space exploration. From the ocean floor to outer space, this week’s programs were extreme! Participants built and launched their own rockets, viewed the sun through a solarscope, built and tested Cartesian divers, learned the art (and science!) of
STEM Summer Programs were spectacular this week!

Swiss psychiatrist and balloonist Bertrand Piccard is currently flying a solar-powered plane across the Atlantic as part of his attempt to complete the first flight around the world (that’s 22,000 miles!) in a solar-powered plane. What is Solar-Powered? When we talk about something that is solar-powered, we are referring to something that is powered either
