Learning Under the Sun 2016
“Science Sleuths Using Technology”
for students entering grades 4-8
Learning Under the Sun (LUS) is a summer science-enrichment program for students entering grades 4 – 8. The theme for the 2016 LUS program is “Science Sleuths Using Technology”.
This year our focus is using technology. We will be working with a SKYPE Master and communicating with schools and a scientist in South America. Students will be coding and have the opportunity to work with a 3-D printer. Students will participate in other high tech experiments.
We will be visiting the Indianapolis Children’s Museum for three half-days working on different stations. Our overnight will be on June 16th where we will celebrate Indiana’s 200th Birthday as we visit Corydon, Indiana, the first state capital and O’Bannon Woods. Caves, hiking, working with a naturalist and a cool waterpark are all part of the overnight experience, plus a surprise!
Transportation to all field experiences will be provided by LUS. Parent(s)/guardian(s) must provide daily transportation to the base location at Nora Elementary School, 1000 East 91st Street. All materials, equipment, and supplies are provided, as well as breakfast and lunch.
