Themes include:

Rockin Rocket Engineers (ages 5-12):

 

Set your future space explorers on a trajectory from our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system! We will bring them closer to the stars, planets, comets, and more. Learn about living in space, getting away from gravity, looking for space phenomena, and last but not least, learn about the secrets of rocket science and even participate in a live rocket launch. Join our space academy this summer for some out of this world fun! 

 

Junior Robot Engineers (ages 5-12):

 

Whether your child loves to build things or destroy them, this week of camp includes lots of both! Junior Mad Science engineers design and build structures using simple tools and their imaginations. Then the machine madness starts…children discover how different machines, both simple and complex, are used in our daily lives! Kids design simple machines using pulleys, wedges, screws and levers and have fun learning how catapults work! We use the skills we’ve learned to build a Mad Science robot that we can keep, all while learning the science of robotics!

 


Wings and Things (ages 5-12):

 

As a Mad Science flight cadet in training, this hands-on Mad Science program teaches you all about aerodynamics and the world around us! Explore the basic principles of flight and build airplanes. Explore the natural world and the adaptations that allow birds and beasts to thrive. Have fun finding and magnifying nature’s smallest creatures, pour plaster casts of animal tracks, and discover what owls eat and identify the bones they leave behind! 

 

 

Chemical Detectives (ages 5-12): 

 

Magic? No, it’s science! Take a walk on the wild side in this crazy week of sleuth science. Have a ton of fun as we whip up potions and experiment with all kinds of chemical reactions. Discover how chemical reactions are everywhere and how you can figure out if a chemical change has occurred right before your very eyes. Then use everything you’ve learned to solve the Mad Science Mystery; even Sherlock couldn’t figure this one out!

 

 

Little Green Thumbs (ages 3-5): 

 

Flowers and minds can’t blossom without STEMs. This camp is specially designed for inquisitive pre-K or Kinder-“Gardeners”. Kids discover how to paint with wind, create a bug model, start their own garden and learn what nature needs to make their plants grow! Non-stop activities keep your little Mad Scientists engaged and focused! Kids give it two Green Thumbs up!! NOTE: Must be potty trained. Parent not required to stay during class.
