Let's bring the Carnival of Venice to us this summer! We will make papier-mâché masks based on Comedia dell'Arte characters such as Arlecchino and Pulcinella. We will make our own glue* and use recycled paper to make the masks which we will then paint and coat for durability.

Students will learn the "star" players of our bay area summer night sky; by the end of camp we will be able to identify constellations, notable stars, and exciting Messier objects. Some of the fascinating things to learn include star formation and death, which moons and exoplanets could harbor life, and how to navigate using our knowledge of the stars. We will explore incredible imagery from telescopes around the world so that when we finally visit Chabot Space and Science center for our grand finale of a star viewing party (weather permitting) what we will see in the eyepiece will come alive with the colorful images we have studied.
Available for Upper Elementary & JH students Limited to 8 students
