WFSU created a hands-on game that asks kids to review the natural and manmade systems that dictate how our water moves throughout our community. Kids play WATER MOVES in teams; the team that builds a system to move water to their respective bucket the fastest (and often most efficiently) wins the game. The task may sound simple, but it involves many challenges – completing puzzles, gathering tools, team work, and problem solving to complete the mission.
SciGirls is a two-week hands-on summer camp that inspires middle school girls to pursue careers in science.
The Super WHY! Summer Reading Camp is a breakthrough three-week-long program that invites beginning readers to practice key reading skills and transform into “Super Readers”. The camp was created to teach pre-reading skills to rising kindergarteners and first graders by viewing a clip of the Super WHY! television series each morning and completing corresponding games, crafts and activities throughout the day. This recipe for learning has been a huge success!
Get ready for a camp experience you won’t forget! The Sensational Science with Ruff Ruffman summer camp, invites kids ages five to eight to participate in five sessions of three to four hours each, using high-quality resources from The Ruff Ruffman Show.
Welcome to Odd Squad! We can’t wait for your kids to join us at the “Be the Agent Camp“ at WFSU.
In the show, agents Olive and Otto investigate unusual phenomena around them and use math to set things right. For instance, they recapture a gallon-sized blob that has separated into smaller pieces, and deal with magical creatures that escaped from books. Therefore, there is no occurrence that is too strange for the Odd Squad.
This camp uses PBS Kids ScratchJr, an introductory programming language app inspired by the popular Scratch program, used by millions of young people around the world. The folks at SratchJr. joined with PBS Kids to design features that match their overall growth. By redesigning the programming language, they made the process developmentally appropriate for younger children.
