Gan Israel Summer Camp,
For another year I
was invited to provide a rocketry session to the boys and
girls at the Gan Israel Summer Camp in Brighton, MA!
For this session
we did the Whatchamacallit
kit for the younger kids and the Triskelion
for the older kids. The course layout for these sessions
is a bit challenging as we only have 2 real days of kit
construction. The way the schedule is broken up is I
have all of the kids (girls in the morning and boys in the
afternoon) on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday
are half days where I have the girls one day and the boys the
other. On this (3rd day of building) we need to get the
models painted so we only have Mon & Tues for actual
construction. We fly on Friday.
Add to this the
fact that, due to the way the schedule works, one of the
classes of younger kids is only 45 minutes long (all the
others are 1 full hour). This just means I need to get
creative with the groups and what/how we do our build.
For example, for the older kids we are omitting the toothpick
used in the Triskelion kit...
The kids have been
simply WONDERFUL and I thank the counselors who are working
with us for all their hard work. Thanks also to the
planners at Gan Israel for inviting me and providing such and
interactive program to their summer camp kids!
