Advanced Girls Science Academy

Dates: Mon Jun 17 - Fri Jun 21, 13

Time: 9:30am - 4:00pm

Type: Summer Camps

Enjoy a week full of science exploration during the Air Zoo's summer camp experiences, designed for kids ages 4-17. Our professional educators will share the thrill of aviation and space with campers through hands-on activities and interactive experiments. Campers will get an in-depth look at the Air Zoo, including the 4D theater, full-motion flight simulators and much more! Because some portions of the camp will take place outdoors, campers need to dress appropriately for the weather. SkySpace Kids Club and supporting members will receive 10% off all summer camps.

Advanced Girls Science Academy

Grades 6-8


Limit 12

Girls will experiment with Bernoulli's Principle and Newton's Laws of Motion, along with learn how to navigate and control aircraft in flight. They'll visit Duncan Aviation in Battle Creek, where aircraft are refurbished, and receive a behind-the-scenes tour of the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport. Cadets will be introduced to concepts in aviation and space flight, and will utilize different skills to build an airplane rib, learn the skill of fabric covering, and partake in cable swaging. They'll also build a tin can robot and propeller racer, but the highlight of the week will be when campers fly with an instructor and take over the controls of an aircraft!

Campers will receive a tin can robot and propeller racer.
