Simple Machines

Kids fixing bikes.

Join us as we get our hands dirty in nature to figure out what makes the world tick and how things work! Ever wonder why ropes and pulleys seem to make you stronger? How does a bike work? How do you make a solar oven? We’ll answer these questions and many more! Field trips, guest appearances and plenty of exploration will add zest to this exciting week of science.
Nature never hurries. Atom by atom, little by little she achieves her work.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
