Summer Camp 2016

Come and spend your Summer holidays with us!

 

This year La Mandarina de Newton offers once again its Summer Camp.

It will be 3 theme weeks (‘Mercatech Lab’, ‘Science MasterChef’ y ‘Abracadabra! It’s Science!’) in which we will explore topics related with science, technology and audiovisuals.

 

Each week we will be working together on a common project that will result in a showcase open to the families on the last day of each week.

 

Biology, chemistry, physics, programming, scratch, makey makey, audiovisual creations… these will be some of the ingredients for each of the weeks of our summer camp:

 

Week 1: Mercatech Lab (June 27 – July 1)

We will organise a special market in which the products shown will not be the usual ‘region’s best products’, but those that will be created by the little ones. A market of technology in which the protagonists are the kids and their creations!

Week 2: Science MasterChef (July 4 – 8)

During this week we will become MasterChefs and we will give wings to our creativity and imagination while exploring the scientific secrets of the food. On the last day we will share our ‘scientific recipes’ with a surprising and unique tasting menu.

Week 3: Abracadabra! Its Science! (July 11 -15)

Because science and technology can be magical, this week we will become little “scientific magicians’. Our tricks will leave dumbstruck all of you attending the final magic, science and technology show that we will be creating together.

 

This will be the schedule of the weeks:
