Maritime Gloucester invites kids to a vacation week session about the unique properties of polar explorers and ice science - part of a week full of educational sessions during February vacation! What did explorers find on Arctic and Antarctic expeditions?  What kinds of creatures have adapted to freezing temperatures? Students will learn all about ice through a variety of icy experiments, challenges, and projects.  Using a variety of ice shapes, build an ice tower as high as you can.  Paint a snowy scene with saltwater and watch crystals appear.  Children are encouraged to stay afterwards (2:30-3:30) to watch The Blue Planet: Frozen Seas, a nature documentary about polar sea creatures. 

  • For kids in 2nd – 5th Grade
  • Drop-off program
