Discovery Camp Explorers will work together to make discoveries while participating in JMDC’s weekly Discovery Expeditions. Each week is a different theme focusing on science. Expect to get messy, go exploring, meet new friends, make discoveries, and have fun while doing all of that and more.

Week #4 – Humans have asked questions since the very beginning. Today we have many questions answered based on the minds of the past. Why does my pencil fall? Where does the moon go at night? Why do some animals look weird? Travel to the past with us to the greatest moments in the history of science here these questions got answered. This week will be focused on the most famous experiments and inventions in history. Explorers will learn about motion with Sir Isaac Newton, encounter Galileo as he studies the planets, and become paleontologists with Mary Anning and more. This week, explorers will recreate revolutionary experiments and meet the people that shaped the science we know today.
