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 (SAL)
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! For chidren entering grades 2-6.
NASA Journey into Outer Space (NASA)
Discover the frontiers of space with this hands-on camp! Campers explore our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system! Comets, planets, stars and more are all waiting to be discovered. Learn about the four forces of flight, the challenges of space travel, and participate in a rocket launch!
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.
Flight Academy (FA)
Birds, kites, planes and rockets! If it flies Mad Science Camp covers it! Investigate the science of aerodynamics. All week long, campers will build various flying machines, explore space and apply Newton’s Laws of motion as we take daily flights of discovery! Learn about natural fliers and build your own Mad Science Model Rocket! For children entering grades 1-5.
Science in Motion (SIM)
Science and engineering go hand-in-hand as our campers discover what machines and nature have in common. Campers will build various structures like bridges and domes, and run a crazy obstacle course with the help of simple machines. Learn the Fun-damental Forces that affect motion. Check out motion on the Molecular level and see how motion pictures work.
Crazy Chemworks (CCW)
Campers will learn real lab techniques and safety procedures, and use these throughout the week to mix crazy concoctions and chemical combinations. Experiment with super-sticky-stuff, explore glow-in-the-dark technology, mix potions, make slime, and grow crystals! Each camper takes home a full set of Mad Science lab gear! For children entering grades 2-6.
Robot Engineers (RE)
Join us for a week of fun with amazing robots! In this full-day camp learn about the uses of robots in our world, discover the science of circuits and how robots use their components to explore and react to what is around them. Use your skills to build your very own working robot that you will take home at the end of the week! For children entering grades 3-6.
