Week 1: Cleveland, Ohio - The Heart of It All!
Participants will discover just why Cleveland is a hidden treasure! Campers will hit the trails and take a field trip to a surprise Cleveland landmark location while taking in some of the city’s breathtaking views. On top of exploring our city’s favorite views, during this first week, girls will utilize and explore the renovated Makerspace innovation lab to create a Cleveland-themed project or Father’s Day gift. This week, campers will explore the anatomy of the body specifically the heart using the Anatomage Table, known as “the most technologically advanced anatomy visualization system on the market,” enables campers to dissect, visualize real human tissue and isolate areas of the human body at the simple touch of a finger. Girls will participate in game-related activities to build critical thinking skills and positive relationships.
Week 2: Art and Science of Cooking
Food is sustenance, our primary energy source. The kitchen, where we prepare it, is the heart of our homes; it’s the place where we gather. The kitchen is also a laboratory stocked with high-tech equipment, where ingredients are combined in precise proportions and chemical reactions take place. Its tools and measuring devices allow for temperature control and quantification. At the same time, the kitchen is an artist’s studio where colors and textures are mixed, where flavors layer and aromas mingle, evoking emotions, creating stories or sparking memories. When girls are able to test and experiment in a safe, controlled environment, they gain essential knowledge as well as the opportunity to create delicious results! During this exciting week, students will make their own delectable cookie creations, utilize the Makerspace innovation lab to create and design their own cookie cutters and chocolate molds, explore the math and science behind art and flavor of cooking, have a local surprise food truck discuss their business model and how they’ve been successful, practice descriptive writing techniques to be a food critic and learn how to style food for photography presentations.
Week 3: Spread Your Wings
Prepare for a special mission in flight to discover the forces that make aviation possible and take flight with Saint Joseph Academy as you to spread your wings! During this final week of the Summer Enrichment Program, participants will explore flight in all its many forms through observing motion and forces, experiencing the Virtual Reality Systems through applications such as Google Tilt Brush, which allow students to create with brush strokes in a 3D virtual reality environment. Campers will take a field trip to the Holden Arboretum to explore the Canopy Walk and Emergent Tower, a 500-foot-long elevated walkway built 65 feet above the forest floor. The Emergent Tower is 120 feet or approximately 12 stories tall and provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding area all the way to Lake Erie. Participants will utilize the Makerspace innovation lab to design and build parts for a glider to experience the science of flight, design and construct kites to explore geometric principles, begin learning a world language and step into the spotlight as a confident performer through dance, acting or singing.
