Aug 13th Camp – Is That Possible?!? & Can You Survive That?!?



Is That Possible?!?
Do you ever ask yourself, friends, parents, and teachers crazy “what if” questions that seem impossible to answer? This week we will do our best to ACTUALLY come up with answers and test some questions out! Could we build a bridge across the Atlantic? What would it look like if the oceans started to drain like a bathtub? Can we really dig a hole to China? Maybe you can even come up with and answer a question of your own!

Can You Survive That?!?
Could you survive a skydive from the international space station? What about a magnitude 11 earthquake, could you survive that?? Slipping on a banana peel, surely you can survive THAT! Well, let’s find out! We’ll do our best to answer these questions in a crazy daredevil week of questionable survivability as we ask Can you Survive That!?! (While the scenarios we discuss may not be survivable, the experiments SHOULD be!)
