Create, make, innovate! Campers can take their art work to the next level by investigating the science behind making cool art. Create wind-powered kinetic sculptures; use polarized light to create paintings with tape; animate art digitally; color the world with laser spiro-graphs; explore the chemistry of color through tie-dye; and learn the secrets of making cool pop-up cards.
Both Exploring camps will live on the same residence hall floor, eat meals together, and enjoy many of the same evening activities, including a trip to the Davis Hall Observatory and bowling in the Huskie Den.
