Campers will have the opportunity to be involved and actually participate in some of the ongoing research at KREC. Campers will be exposed to different scientific disciplines, such as chemistry, biology, physics, geology/mineralogy, hydrology/hydrogeology and learn how they interrelate in exploring some of today's mineral resource issues.
The Science Program will be divided into three parts 1) Program Topics-Classroom Activities, 2) Field and Lab Activities, and 3) Science Project. The Science Program will consist of three levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Campers will be placed in appropriate levels based on their English, math and science background. The Science Program will be an active/interactive, hands-on experience which will include field, lab and classroom participation. Campers will learn to
· collect samples
· use laboratory equipment to analyze samples
· develop and run experiments
· log, label and plot data
· collect and interpret data/results
· present data/results.
The Science Program being developed for Camp Edi will be based on practical work experiences, research projects, experiments and training associated with KREC and their associated researchers and students. The goal is to expose children to the various science disciplines in a practical and fun way.
In addition to the English and science programs, recreational activities will be organized for the campers. These include both indoor and outdoor activities. Some of the suggested activities are listed below.
