Investigate the complexities of the sky as you learn to see things in a new way.  In this workshop scouts will learn the phases of the moon, discover constellations and various stars, and create a model of the solar system!

Explore the history of ceramics and become a clay artist yourself. Scouts will experiment with different tools to shape and decorate their slab of clay. Each participant will make a simple pot and paint and glaze a premade piece! Scouts will be invited to come back and celebrate their creations after their projects are fired in the kiln.
