Vacaville's Imagine That!
These classes are for children 8- 12 years of age. Space is very limited due to social distancing standards. If you would prefer to participate in a distance-learning format, we will provide kits that will allow your children to participate from home.
How about some hands-on fun? Students will explore 3 topics that relate to how our genes, how our bodies use food and how our bodies fight germs! The first in this series is:
July 1, 10:00am-11:30pm (5-7 year olds)
1:30pm-3:00pm (8-12 year olds)
Genetic Lottery. Come find out why you look so good in those genes! Students will get to look at DNA, learn about how genes are passed down and expressed, get a chance to explore their own genetic expression, and much more.
Our second day:
July 2, 10:00am-11:30am
Digestive System: In this lesson, model the way the body breaks down food and the way it distributes nutrients in two different activities. Start at the mouth, and journey to the rectum in a lesson that is quite an adventure.
Immune System. Learn how pathogens invade the body, how germs are passed from person to person, and how we can help our body stay healthy. The immune system is wonderful and complex.
