Flying Cloud Institute and Greenagers February Break Program
SOUTH EGREMONT, Mass. — Flying Cloud Institute and Greenagers will hold a science and art exploration program during the February school break for children aged 9 to 13 years.
It runs February 21 - 24, 2022, from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm (with early drop-off at 8:30 am), at the April Hill Education and Conservation Center in South Egremont.
Participants will engage in science investigations, art projects, engineering challenges and nature explorations. This program was last held in February 2020, when activities included investigating temperature by making their own thermometers, exploring endo- and exothermic reactions by designing a cold pack or heat pack, and learning about insulation through a heating and melting challenge. Students also hiked nature trails, played games, and crafted original wooden decorations.
The program will be located at April Hill Education and Conservation Center, which serves as the headquarters for Greenagers, as well as a resource for community gatherings and education. The nearly 100-acre property has nature trails, vegetable gardens, orchards, pastures and hayfields, and abuts the Appalachian Trail.
"Flying Cloud Institute is pleased to partner with Greenagers on this exciting adventure! We look forward to engaging youth with dynamic science and art activities to ignite their creativity," said Maria Rundle, executive director.
The cost is $210 for the four-day program. Participants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend. To register, visit flyingcloudinstitute.org
