Summer is a crucial time for kids to learn new things and build new skills. It's also an important time to keep school learning fresh, leading into the new school year.
That's why The Cade is thrilled to partner with WUFT & PBS Kids for virtual 2020 Summer Camp. Watch these and other STEAM videos on WUFT / PBS Kids. Each dovetails with lessons & activities from The Cade's weekly, in-museum summer camps. STEAM ON this summer! All lessons are recommended for Ages 6+ with close parental supervision.
Live in Outer Space Camp
Weird Wonky Science Camp
Oh My Stars & Planets Too Camp
Campers blast off with creativity as they learn about our solar system and what's beyond it. From a nebula full of color to brilliant comets, we hope to inspire future scientists, inventors, astronauts & space explorers. Lessons weave art into the science fun for an experiential learning experience that lasts a life time.
The Inventor Is In Camp
Every day we have the ability to invent solutions to problems big or small. That is how inventions are made. Do you see problems and want to determine the best solutions? If you do, that means that you are an inventor already! In this camp we will learn about inventions that we use every day and the inventors behind them. This camp allows students to recreate the inventions through hands-on experiments to gain greater understanding of how inventions come to be. How can learning be this much fun?
More Summer Camp Fun: A new Summer Camp theme, with more videos & activities, will be posted weekly. In addition to Summer Camp videos & lessons, below are added activities for parents and kids to explore together from WUFT/PBS partner Lauren's Kids, and links to more Cade at Home STEAM lesson videos.
The Science of Skating Click here to watch our new PBS science of skating videos!
Brainstorm about helpers who make sure our lives are nice and safe. Take a moment to walk in their shoes and thank them for all their hard work. Decorate and personalize a shoe and boot cutout and share it with your teacher, delivery driver, postal worker, or healthcare worker.
Bloom Where You Are Planted: When asked to stay home during this time it can be disruptive to a child's normal routine. Brainstorm activities with your child and use those ideas to create a flower power plant!
It is important that children feel safe and use safe practices in their everyday lives. In this activity, children will create safety googles and use them to identify safe and unsafe practices at home. Learn more about Lauren's Kids!
