Campers also became meteorologists, building their own homemade weather stations. Campers had fun doing some hands-on science through making a snow gauge, thermometer, wind vane, and anemometer. To make your own homemade instruments and try some weather experiments at home, visit this website. Thanks to SPREE staff and high school students from KIPP Denver Collegiate for their help with a fun winter day.
While many students around Denver enjoyed a day off in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr, SPREE celebrated the day with a holiday camp, “Wild About Weather”. With fresh snow on the ground, campers learned the science behind snow and you can, too by visiting this website. We looked at snowflakes and made our own glitter flake.
If you haven’t had the chance to visit Johnson Habitat Park this season, the photos below highlighting the Park’s winter beauty just might encourage you to visit this amazing and recently remodeled public park!
