This week was eventful for The Lab. On Wednesday, we constructed over 100 air dart shooters with the Campers at Wesley Rankin Community Center.  And on Thursday, we received lots of help from East Dallas kids when we filled and launched a giant Solar Balloon at the Lakewood Whole Foods store Kids Club meeting.

Still, the most fun was had on-site at The Lab during this week’s camp, “Art Meets Science”. We tie-dyed Lab at Lakewood t-shirts, reupholstered our favorite chair with duct tape squares, and constructed robots from junk (lots of our campers learned to solder in the process).  As part of our “Local Business Weekly Guest Star” program, we hosted Cockrell Iron and Paint (www.ironandpaint.com). Stew taught campers how to construct their own homemade Bat Houses. Everyone got to decorate the house they built for take-home.

Next week, June 25-June 29, we will conduct the first Chemistry Kids camp of the year. Camp is full, so we regretfully cannot take drop-ins, however, I will be offering an impromptu camp on July 2 and 3. Please see details below.

As always, thank you for supporting The Lab at Lakewood. I hope you all enjoy the attached photos!

Greetings from The Lab,

This week’s “Camp with a Conscience” has been very inspiring for us. We are amazed at some of the circuits the campers constructed given solar panels and generators as the only power source (no batteries or “plugging in” allowed). Today, we had a visit from Heather from the Texas Worm Ranch. She brought us a pound of worms and showed us how to run a proper worm bin. Our campers delighted in shredding paper and making a pile of compostable material from their leftover lunches.

Next week, Science Meets Art at The Lab. We still have some space, so we will be accepting week-long campers ($250) and daily drop-ins with reservation and pre-payment ($60 per day). Consider having your little one join us for tie-dying, duct tape accessories and polymer painting.

Call 214-901-4280 or email info@thelabdallas.com to sign up.

The Texas Honeybee Guild made a special appearance today at The Lab at Lakewood. A fun and energetic group of 24 school-aged campers celebrated their final day of The Lab's "Animals: LIVE!" camp by viewing an active hive and a queen bee at work. All campers snacked on graham crackers and The Guild's own whipped honey.
 
Space is still available in next week's "Camp with a Conscience" at The Lab. Campers will explore the sun with solar cooking, will re-purpose items when "Trash Becomes Treasure" and will visit with guests from Texas Worm Ranch on "Composting Day". The Lab staff will simulate an oil spill, and campers will band together for a cool "hazmat clean-up" experience.
 
Camps are open to school-aged kids and run 9:30a-2:00p Monday-Friday. $250.00 for the whole week or "drop-in" for $60.00 per day. Call 214-901-4280 or email info@thelabdallas.com for more information.
Fill your child's summer with fun and education. The Lab at Lakewood, a fun place for kids to explore science.
