Mixing and matching our 10 weeklong classes makes for a marvelous summer. One of our favorite full-day combinations? Pairing an in-museum class with one that takes full advantage of Chabot's redwood forest surroundings.
GPS Treasure Hunt (NEW for 2013!)
Embark on a geocache adventure through Roberts Regional Park! Using maps, GPS devices and your powers of deduction, navigate the forest's most mysterious hiding places, seeking out cleverly concealed caches to discover - and add to - what others have left behind.
Greengineering (REVISED for 2013! Formerly Climate Quest)
Unearth the energy of the future! Harness the power of wind, water and sun to electrify a circuit and design a room run entirely by your own renewable technology. Plus, learn the secrets of combating climate change in the newly reimagined Bill Nye's Climate Lab.
Ever dream about inventing the next big thing? Step into the Inventor's Workshop and learn the tricks of the trade! Explore engineering and electricity, discover what makes machines tick and use everyday objects as inspiration for your own innovations.
Use Lego Mindstorm NXT software and Technic building pieces to design your own robot. Learn how to program routes and movements and use line and ultra-sound sensors to make your robot react, retrieve and compete with other bots in feats of strength and speed.
(REVISED for 2013! Formerly Space Challenger)*
Boldly go where no Chabot camper has gone before! Build your own Mars rover to investigate the environment of the red planet and the likelihood of Martian life, then board the Bay Area's only Challenger Learning Center® to navigate a mission-critical Voyage to Mars.™
Mission: Masterpiece (NEW for 2013!)
Draw artistic inspiration from Chabot and the world around it. Take a closer look at some of the museum's most intriguing installations, exhibits and environments, then create your own collection of artwork inspired by the inner workings of what you see.
Music and Technology*
Rock out with digital music you produce yourself! Learn about sequencing, sampling, song structure and editing as you lay down original tracks using GarageBand, MIDI boards and drum pads and release the next big song of the summer.
Rocket Lab (REVISED for 2013!)*
Prepare for liftoff as you explore the acceleration, propulsion, altitude and velocity of a successful rocket launch. Build and blast off rocket cars, pop rockets and water rockets, then fly your own hands-on mission into space aboard Chabot's legendary Challenger Learning Center.®
Survivor: Chabot (REVISED for 2013! Formerly Outdoor Challenges)
It's camper vs. nature as you learn the skills of survival and wilderness safety in the wilds of the redwood forest. Tackle team-building challenges, take on adventurous hikes and learn how to seek shelter in extreme conditions.
