Basic Optics

Ever wonder why you see your face reflected in the glass when you look out at the sky at night but when you look out during the day all you see is what’s outside? Ever wonder why you cannot see too well through fog? Ever wonder why objects can be different colors even though we are looking at them in the same light? This this is the camp for you; we will talk about what light is, how it interacts with materials and how that makes it look a certain way! And, we might even branch out very briefly into the light on the edge of our vision (UV and Infrared).
• Light (EM radiation); what is it? And how much of it (what colors) can we see?
• What happens to light when it finds materials? (e.g., reflection, refraction, transmission, scattering)
• What material qualities control what happens to the light and why?
• We will do some measurements and tests with light to see what happens when it interacts with materials to see what it looks like and why.
- And, don’t worry – you don’t have to be a physicist to do this; we will explain stuff without equations!!! You just have to be someone who wants to know “why?”
When not in classes, campers have lots of fun participating in a variety of recreational activities. Planned activities include indoor and outdoor games, hikes and movies, possible planned trips to the Equestrian Center, Foster Lake, and social gatherings at a local coffee house. There is also a farewell party on the last night of camp. Admissions interviews and campus tours will be available by appointment on Thursday afternoon.

Ceramic & Glass Engineering Camp

The Alfred University Ceramic & Glass Engineering camp is for students who wish to learn about this exciting field.Ceramic Processing and Tape Casting:
Ceramic components are at the heart of a vast majority of our everyday items, from cell phones to toilets. At the center of the manufacturing process is ceramic processing - using powders to make usable items. This summer lab exercise will focus on making a ceramic “sun-catcher” that will be fabricated using tape casting, lamination, and glazing, capturing aspects of both historical and advanced ceramic materials and processing techniques. We will discuss the chemistry involved, the reactions that occur at both room temperature and at high temperature, and how these processes affect the properties (light transmission, strength, etc.) of the ceramic component. The students will: • Learn about powders and powder processing.
• Learn to tape cast ceramic materials.
• Color the ceramic tapes with ceramic colorants.
• Cut and laminate the tapes to create a 'sun-catcher'
• Fire the samples to create a strong, translucent piece.
Glass is everywhere in our daily lives, from the screen on your cell phone and LCD television, to windows, bottles, and fiber optic cables. Unlike other ceramics and materials, glass is not a solid, but a super-cooled liquid. How glass is made, however, is an exciting and visually spectacular event, where raw materials (sand, limestone, and soda ash) are blended and melted at high temperature to form a viscous liquid that can be cast and shaped into objects. This lab exercise will discuss how chemistry affects glass properties and color, making glass, and stress in glass due to cooling.
In addition, each student will cast a glass piece to take home! In the evenings, students have lots of fun participating in a variety of activities including indoor and outdoor games, movies, hikes, social gatherings at a local coffee house, a farewell party on the last night, and more. Living, dining and learning together, students have ample opportunity to get to know each other and develop lasting friendships

Program Information:
This co-ed, overnight summer camp is designed for high school students entering their freshman through senior years. The number of participants is kept small to allow for individualized attention and optimal use of equipment.
Dates of Camp: June 28 - July 2, 2020

Hydraulics Makerspace

Your child has likely seen an excavator on a construction site, moving earth. It uses a hydraulic system to power the articulated arm and bucket. In our makerspace, children get to tinker and build table-top hydraulic machines of their own design. And not just any machines, but ones that perform specific tasks.
Microscope Adventures
Microscopes unlock a magical visual world packed with unexpected riches!
The curiosity and exploratory process of Leonardo da Vinci is the inspiration for this week, where children learn to use microscopes to discover and explore.
