Summer Program Description

6/22 - 6/26 (Week 1, GRADES 4-8)
Morning Microbe Hunter: Bacteria are the oldest forms of life on Earth, and live everywhere, including on and inside us! But no one knew they existed until the invention of the microscope 430 years ago. We'll study bacteria and other microscopic organisms as we go on a microbe safari. Scratch Programming: Create and code your own games and animations while applying logic and mathematical concepts such as Cartesian coordinate, variables, subroutines and broadcasting. Publish your creation on the Internet and share them with your friends!
Afternoon Makerspace: Learn to use tools safely as you build things using wood, PVC, foamcore and other materials. Work together on advanced designs as well as on your own to make projects to take home.

6/29 - 7/3 (Week 2, GRADES 4-8)
Morning Ecosystem Adventures: Learn about plants, soil, and ecosystems by making miniature biomes each day to take home, from underwater aquascape to a dinosaur terrarium showcasing the evolution of plant life. Then after making our miniature ecosystems, we'll take a nature walk to experience the real one behind the school. LEGO Robotics: Use Lego Technic and the MINDSTORMS programming system to build and program your own robotic inventions! Using motors, sensors and imagination, we'll work on projects like art-bots, maze-runners, sumo-bots, robo-soccer, and others!
Afternoon Secret Science: How do you keep a secret? We'll learn the science behind invisible ink, ciphers, locks and other security devices. Make and take home your own secret message ink!

7/6 - 7/10 (Week 3, GRADES 4-8)
Morning Slime Lords: It's slime time at SET! We'll discover the polymer chemistry behind all things gooey and then make our own oozes, slimes, mucus, and snot. Once you know the basics, you can make your own super slime formulas, and teach a non-Newtonian fluid to dance on a speaker!. You'll even take home some edible slime to gross out your friends and family! Stop-Motion Animation: An egg-shaped blob of clay transforms into a fire-breathing dragon! Learn how to create the illusion of motion with everyday materials like LEGOs, toys, clay, and paper cutouts. Bring your creative ideas to life with stop-motion animation software and your imagination.
Afternoon Dungeoneers Guild: You are searching old ruins by the light of a flickering torch. Suddenly a giant troll steps out of the shadows, and he looks mad! What will you do? Run, fight, cast a spell? The choice is yours as you and your friends play heroes in a fantasy world using the Dungeons and Dragons rules. Search dark dungeons, solve insidious riddles, fight monstrous evil and finally escape with the fabulous treasure. Make sure to bring your imagination!

7/13 - 7/17 (Week 4, GRADES 4-8)
Morning Life Through the Ages: How did we get from tiny bacteria to mighty dinosaurs to clever humans since the early days of Earth? We'll explore 4.5 billion years of life on Earth, and look at how evolutionary trends and global disasters shaped the life on our planet. LEGO Robotics: Use Lego Technic and the MINDSTORMS programming system to build and program your own robotic inventions! Using motors, sensors and imagination, we'll work on projects like art-bots, maze-runners, sumo-bots, robo-soccer, and others!
Afternoon Monsters of Myth and Magic: From the evil whales of Iceland and shapeshifting foxes of Asia to the airplane gremlins and Bigfoot, every culture across the globe loves stories of wierd monsters. Learn about the history and true indentity behind the beasts of myth like the Loch Ness monster, and then make up your own tales as well!

7/20 - 7/24 (Week 5, GRADES 4-8)
Morning Electronics Lab : Learn about circuilts and electronic components like transistors, diodes and LEDs. You will learn safe soldering techniques using lead free solder as you make your own electronic devices to take home. Stop-Motion Animation: An egg-shaped blob of clay transforms into a fire-breathing dragon! Learn how to create the illusion of motion with everyday materials like LEGOs, toys, clay, and paper cutouts. Bring your creative ideas to life with stop-motion animation software and your imagination.
Afternoon Med School: Be a student doctor! How do doctors know what to do when someone is sick? What causes disease? What do broken bones look like in X-rays? Dissect a fetal pig to see how organ systems interact in the body. Learn about the human body and how it functions, and find out why doctors scramble when they hear the words “Code blue!”

7/27 - 7/31 (Week 6, GRADES 4-8)
Morning Candy Lab: There's a lot of chemistry that goes into making candy. Discover the secrets behind your favorite sweets and learn to control the chemistry of sugar to make your own candy. LEGO Robotics: Use Lego Technic and the MINDSTORMS programming system to build and program your own robotic inventions! Using motors, sensors and imagination, we'll work on projects like art-bots, maze-runners, sumo-bots, robo-soccer, and others!
Afternoon Vet School: Do you love animals? As a vet in training you'll learn about how to care for pets, diagnose illness and how to treat injured animals in an emergency. Look at X-rays of different kinds of pets and study animal physiology. We'll also have guest visit from a real Tufts Vet School student.

8/3 - 8/7 (Week 7, GRADES 4-8)
Morning CSI Detective: There's been a crime at SET School! It's up to you, Detective, to investigate the crime scene, collect clues, analyze the evidence and catch the criminal. How do police use forensic techniques to solve crimes? You'll learn chemical tests, how to lift and read fingerprints, what to do with microscopic evidence, and how to hone your powers of observation when conducting a Crime Scene Investigation.
