SERIES OF SCIENCE BASED PROGRAMS BY NASA
The Science Museums Atlanta-SciTrek is a series of science camps specially designed for empowering students to investigate and enquire the principles of science. While you enjoying the thrill of experiencing and exploring the mysteries of the world in a learning environment.
Science Museums Atlanta SCITREK FOCUSES ON VARIOUS INCREDIBLE TOPICS OF SCIENCE AND to EXPLAIN THIS TOPIC TO OUR STUDENTS, OUR TEAM CONDUCT ACTIVITIES THAT ARE BOTH ENGAGING AND FUN!
THE EXTRAORDINARY UNIVERSE OF LIGHT
The ability to perceive things through vision is one of the greatest treasures bestowed on living beings. As a global effort to spread awareness about the vital role played by light in our everyday lives, The United Nations designated the year 2015 as the international year of light.
To explain the above topic, our team conducts the Activities that focus on:
– Lasers and fiber optics
– Optical devices such as Image projections, polarization, Simple telescopes, and pinhole cameras
– Solar panels to convert the light energy into electrical energy
– Light and shadows
THE AMAZING WORLD OF MACHINES, ELECTRICITY, AND MAGNETISM
Almost every minute of our lives in our developing technology-driven society utilizes these two fundamental elements that are Machines and Electricity.
This camp is primarily focused on providing valuable practical insight into the working of machines by encouraging students to build their machines and explore the basics of the phenomenon of electricity and magnetism.
In order to explain this topic, the activities conducted mainly focuses on:
– The Trebuchet siege Machine
– Production of electrical energy from electrochemical, electromechanical, and optical sources.
– Fundamentals of magnetism and electricity
THE BEAUTIFUL WORLD OF NATURAL SCIENCE AND BIOLOGY
This is yet another topic which our team tends to cover in this camp. In this program, we strive to dive deep into the extraordinary workings of the natural world, wondering over the various miracles of natural creation. While providing a foundational understanding of some of the core elements of natural science and biology.
The activities conducted to explain this topic focuses on:
– Electronic microscopy and imaging
– Human Anatomy
– Earth sciences
– Meteorology and geology
SUPER SCIENCE DISCOVERY
In this camp, we study the love and hate relationships of different chemicals available in the day to day life. Exploring the world of chemistry, fluid dynamics, and sound, we aim to build a conceptual foundation that will serve as a valuable tool for future studies in these areas.
The activities conducted mainly focuses on:
– Acids and Bases
– Fluid Dynamics
Mathematics is said to be the language of science. Science would find itself inexpressible without the numbers, the equations, and the structure of mathematics. In this camp, we present mathematics not only as an essential practice tool of our day to day lives but also as nature’s way of incredibly expressing itself in various forms of mathematical concepts.
Our team, with their innovative and fun activities, tries to explain the mathematics in the most fun and exciting way which is enjoyed by each and every student.
The activity focuses mainly on the three essential topics:
– Geometrical structures and the collaborative project on Sierpinski Tetrahedron
– Practical applications of geometry and mathematical tables,
– Probability and Number Sequences
THE AMAZING UNIVERSE
Astronomy, one of the oldest sciences, entails not only the study of the solar system and cosmos, but an almost endless array of topics that includes physics, mathematics, thermodynamics, optics, robotics, and even chemistry.
On NASA tour during this camp, students explore these various aspects, while also building a foundation of knowledge about our unique place in the Universe and the amazing evolution of our beautiful home in space the earth.
The activities focus on the following:
– Seasons and phases of Moon
– Crater Formation
– Solar System Walk
– Nighttime Telescopic Astronomy
Our program SciTrek has some CORE OBJECTIVES, which is to develop scientific temperament and a passion for learning the Universe we live in. Also, to encourage students to explore the world around them while increasing their conscious awareness of the importance of STEM in our everyday lives.
