Our Half-Day Camp Themes
Children overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors, and most importantly, their minds. With a bit of ingenuity, they create catapults and forts, construct working light sticks, and assemble a set of circuits with batteries and light bulbs.
Secret Agent Lab
This program features fun-filled, hands-on, secret agent-themed science activities that allow kids to play detective, explore forensic science, sharpen their surveillance skills, and crack encrypted messages. Kids become super sleuths!
NASA Journey into Outer Space
Set your future space explorers on a trajectory from our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system! This hands-on program brings them closer to the stars, planets, comets, and more. They learn about living in space, getting away from gravity, looking for space phenomena, and they participate in a rocket launch!
Adventures in Science!
Children discover how to send secret messages to their friends using special codes, explore how Newton's laws are at work in their favorite sports, and become young astronauts while exploring the mysteries of the solar system.
Shake up a flask of fun in the lab as a junior chemist! Campers learn to swirl, pour and mix like a scientist! Chill down and heat up at the atomic level as you change liquid to solid and back again. Learn how to handle laboratory tools, build and break molecules, and pick up some tricks on chemical changes with solids, liquids, and gases. Join us for a high-speed science experience!
Introduction to Robotics
Children learn about the uses of robots in our world and spend time experimenting with super cool red-hot robots. They discover the science of circuits and how robots use sensors to explore things around them. They build their very own working automaton to take home with them! (8-12 yrs. only)
Wings & Things!
Let your imagination take flight as we join Sir Issac Newton and prepare for aerospace adventures with his laws of motion. Design and test flying creations including kites, planes, rockets, hovercrafts, and more. Learn all about the Wright brothers and their numerous contributions to aviation. Experiment with the laws of physics, gravity and motion during this amazing week of hands-on fun.
Fun-gineering, Mix-ups & More!
Kids put on their engineer's hats for this exciting week of science activities. They also learn about chemical reactions that they might encounter in their daily lives and the nature of birds and beasts, as they take a walk on the wild side of science.
Using LEGO® bricks, kids build a different engineering-themed project in each class. They explore different engineering fields, including mechanical, structural, aerospace, nautical, and bioengineering. They use critical thinking, and creative problem-solving to test and improve their creations. (8-12 yrs. only)
