Brain Monkeys: Backyard Ballistics 
July 15th-19th from 8:30am-11:30am

Have you ever seen the sky rain potatoes or made a rocket using a pin and tin foil?  In this camp, all questions will be answered as we explore and create ballistics devices and make catapults and rockets out of ordinary household materials.  We will also be making either an air powered cannon or a trebuchet as a camp project and launching it off on the last day.

Brain Monkeys: Medieval Makers – July 15th-19th from 12:30-3:30pm       

In medieval times, before knights could ride out to do battle, they had to pass long, hard and sometimes boring hours of practice, practice, practice. First they had to be a page. If they did well they became a squire. If squires were worthy they were dubbed and became knights.

In this camp, students will go through an accelerated and not-so-boring process of becoming a knight. They will be designing and creating their own armor and weaponry and (of course) a castle.

Join us as we step back in time to the days of nobles ruling from imposing castles high on the bluffs and knights in armor defending the kingdom.

Campers keep everything they build and girls can definitely become knights!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Katie Tilton is a certified school teacher, artist, engineer, inventor and entrepreneur who saw the need to increase the number of programs that support discovery-based learning.  She founded Brain Monkeys back in 2009 to offer inquiry-based programs in after school and summer camp programs, evening and weekend classes and workshops, clubs and groups, private tutoring and more.
