Summer 2019: One Giant Leap!

July 8 - August 16, 2019

It’s a big summer for the science of space! NASA turns 60, it’s the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, and there will be two meteor showers. Let’s celebrate space and take one giant leap into summer fun!

WEEK 1 : EARTH FIRST

July 8 - July 12

Every journey into space starts right here on Earth. Did you know lots of the elements that make up our planet, and even our own bodies, actually came to us from space?! Let’s find out what happens when we mix a few earthly elements to get some really fizzy fun.

WEEK 2 : let’s blast off

July 15 - July 19

50 years ago, the first person to ever set foot on the moon, Neil Armstrong, made “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” To celebrate, we will make our own moon craters, design a delicious diagram of the phases of the moon, and craft our own space shuttles to blast into the far reaches of our own imaginations.

WEEK 3 : WHAT KIND OF SHOWER?

July 22 - July 26

Have you ever seen a shooting star? Those streaks of light are actually meteors – and a whole shower, a meteor shower, will glimmer across the sky this week. We will dissolve pretend meteors you make from scratch, make and race parachutes, and even wish upon a star to make our own meteoric magic.

 

WEEK 4 : SPACE RACE

July 29 - August 2

Imagine the kinds of vehicles astronauts use to zip around in outer space. Let’s be NASA engineers and design spacecraft – not with iron and steel, but with balloons, marshmallows, and even pasta!

WEEK 5 : the eagle has landed

August 5 - August 9

Taking off is exciting; landing is important, too. And rovers need to be strong enough to explore planets and moons other than our own. This week, we’ll take off with recyclables, learn how to absorb the shock of a touch down by testing various materials, and build super strong structures with items so delicate, it will require fun experimentation to configure them so they don’t break.

WEEK 6 : constellation station

August 12 - August 16

If we look up to see this Monday’s meteor shower, we’ll also see star patterns called constellations. This week we have fun thinking about stars, those steady lights that have inspired humans, who, through the millennia, have looked up and wondered, “What’s out there?”

Mini Camp: Movie Magic

Mini Camp: Movie Magic

July 15 - August 2, 2019

Quiet on Set! And....Action!

We are thrilled to collaborate with Brooklyn's own Automatic Studios to offer a 3-week filmmaking mini-camp for rising 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. Your young filmmaker will work collaboratively to produce a short film through each stage of the creative process of professional filmmaking. Each day gives kids the opportunity to be part of a creative team that gains technical knowledge as they experience working on a real movie set.  In our unique movie arts program, students learn the art and the technology of movie making through hands-on experience, active collaboration, and teamwork. Young Filmmakers will learn Scriptwriting, Pre-production Planning, On-Set Job Roles, Studio & Location Production, Shooting, and Editing. Campers may register for 1-3 weeks. Let's make movie magic!

Led by a seasoned Automatic Film Studios Educator and supported by our own Camp Fort Greene Counselors, these campers benefit from a curriculum that encourages creativity and innovation as they work on a real movie set each afternoon. Every morning, Filmmakers spend time outdoors, where they play soccer and basketball, giving them plenty of fun opportunities to build confidence and skills.
