The Great Adventure Lab Summer Camp @ Flora Singer Elementary School

Our science, robotics and engineering summer camp is so fun, kids have no idea how much they’re learning!

Did your children come last year and love it? Sign them up again since this summer we’ll be offering awesome NEW projects!

Our youngest campers, rising grades K-1, will have their own Lego Building and Engineering classes where they will also explore physics as they learn how to design simple machines. We will also be exploring the world around us in Nature Science. Children will learn about butterflies, bees, and animals. In our Intro to Video Game Programming class, campers will create their own simple video game programs using Scratch on iPads. We also have an all-new set of Invention Lab projects where campers will experiment and tinker to their hearts’ content!

Rising grades 2-3 will be building and programming Bluetooth-controlled Lego robots using iPads and Wedo 2.0. We will also be creating video games using MIT’s Scratch programming.

Our 4th-6th-grade campers will be designing and programming robots that can navigate mazes and battle each other using Mindstorms. 4th-6th-grade campers will also learn how to design their own 3D objects and get a chance to print them out.

This summer we’ll be bringing back our Invention Lab with a variety of fantastic projects that float, fly and glow. In Young Engineers, we will be building an array of structures from geodesic domes to catapults.

Medical Museum Science Cafe: Exploring Emerging DNA Technologies in Indentifying Historic Human Remains @ National Museum of Health and Medicine
Jul 23 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Medical Museum Science Cafe: Exploring Emerging DNA Technologies in Indentifying Historic Human Remains @ National Museum of Health and Medicine


A 1990s excavation of a grave in an 18-19th century cemetery revealed the remains of a 50-55 year old male. The skeleton had been disturbed and the skull and femur bones were placed in a “skull and cross bones” orientation sometime after decomposition was complete. “JB-55” was spelled out on the coffin lid with brass tacks. Join DNA scientists from the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System to learn how the decades-old historical archaeology case of “JB-55” has been solved using next-generation DNA technology and profiles from genealogical DNA databases. This event is free! For more information contact us at 301-319-3303 or visit our website at https://www.medicalmuseum.mil/index.cfm?p=media.events.2019.scicafe_jul2019.
