The Week of June 8

SET – Science, Engineering, & Technology

The Virtual SET Track delivers all the excitement of the typical Summer Camp SET Track right to you at home. We've got some
tower-building, water-filtering, paper airplane-flying fun coming right up! Get ready for some
hands-on science activities all summer long!

Lesson 1 - In this starting lesson, campers will have the opportunity to learn about the various uses of towers, basic elements of tower constructions, and begin their very own tower made from basic household materials: straws, tape, and plastic cups!

Lesson 2 - In the second Virtual SET lesson, campers will build on their knowledge of tower design and learn about technical tower terminology and methods to reinforce twoer designs. Campers will then be able to apply this knowledge and build a more advanced tower designed to hold a tennis ball off the ground!

Lesson 3 - The final Virtual SET lesson concludes the tower unit and is the most challenging yet! Students will learn how to stress efficiency in building design, using as little materials as possible to build a third tower, capable of holding increasing weight off the ground! We challenge campers to build stronger and stronger towers, competing against their previous best record!
