Our Ocean of Air

Monday August 5

10 - 11:30

$15.00

Ages 10 - 16


You can’t understand flight without understanding a little bit about air and our atmosphere.  We live under an ocean of air and because of this things fly and float.  Without the ocean of air everything would literally fall like a rock!  This class will be filled with some of Science Jim’s favorite demonstrations as well as a Glorious Gliding Garbage challenge at the end.

Paper Airplanes: Basic Designs

Tuesday August 6

10 - 11:30 

$15.00

Ages 10 - 16


There is little that Science Jim enjoys more than paper airplanes.  When he was in school and had to bring home handouts for his parents, very few ever made it home without becoming gliding projectiles (and even fewer made it home at all thanks to getting stuck in trees and landing on roofs).   In this class, Science Jim will show you how to make some of the more basic forms of paper airplanes.  We will also have a competition at the end of class for the farthest traveling paper airplane and the plane that stays aloft the longest.

Paper Airplanes: Advanced Designs

Wednesday August 7

10 - 11:30

$15.00

Ages 10 - 16


This class is a follow up of the Tuesday class where we will be making far more complicated planes and learning a variety of different types of folds so that class participants can go farther on their own with websites and books.  We will be making some amazing planes here, as well as the present day world record holder.  We will have competitions at the end of this day as well.

2 Liter Bottle Rockets

Thursday August 8

10 - 11: 30

$15.00

Ages 1- - 16


Did you know you can rockets out of pop bottles and with a little water and air launch them 100 or more feet into the air?!  Well, you can and we will.  Join Science Jim as we, literally, make rockets out of garbage. 

Estes Rockets

Friday August 9

10 - 12:00

$15.00

Ages 10 - 16


Today’s the big day.  We are going to be building Estes Rockets!  These things have the potential to go 800 - 1000 feet into the air!  Rob Rich, the Caerus Academy math teacher, will help us find out just how high our rockets go.
