Summer Academic & Enrichment Camps

Improve, maintain, or acquire new academic skills with our teacher led small group this summer.  Take the time to really understand and practice those math facts, writing skills, cursive handwriting, keyboarding, etc.  High school students can retake classes to improve grades or get a head-start on their next school year.  We will custom design a program for your goals!

Mad Science Summer Camps 2018 at Education Place

WILD ADVENTURES June 11-15 9:00- 3:00 Grades 1-6 $270

Nature is calling…will you answer

In this camp, children will learn about the critters and beasts that roam our beautiful planet. The kids will dissect owl pellets, build an insect and bird house and scavenge for food like the animals do. They will also make awesome discoveries about Earth and what part they can play in keeping it healthy.  They will make paper, learn about recycling,  build their own cell and even cook solar nachos!  

FUN-gineering June 18-22 9:00- 3:00 Grades 1-6 $270

Take an in-depth look at the science behind everyday machines and cool science in this camp about engineering.  We’ll see how your Jr. Mad Scientist brings their inner engineer to life while they construct an amazing kaleidoscope, learn about levers and automatons and create their own contraptions.  In the process even become architects by building our own geodesic dome that we’ll even get a chance to climb inside!

SPY ACADEMY June 25- 29 9:00- 3:00 Grades 1-6 $270

Ever dream of becoming a secret agent? We’ll start with the basics: From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision. Campers will have the opportunity to check out spy tech equipment and take home lots of gadgets like spy glasses! Step into the shoes of a detective as you uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis! Figure out the science of forensics in a hands-on look at crime scenes! Become a super spy and learn clever ways of performing tasks as we take a journey into the world of investigation that spies use! 

INVENTORS & EXPLORERS July 9-13 9:00- 3:00 Grades 1-6 $270

Creative Contraption Warning!This is a camp designed by you—the Inventor! Each day you’ll be given a series of challenges which must be overcome by using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – your mind! With a little bit of ingenuity you’ll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege, fabricate a winning Egg Drop design, construct a dancing robot and assemble a working light saber to take home. While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% fun!

ROCKETS & ROBOTS July 16- 20 9:00- 3:00 Grades 1-3 $305

Your Jr. Mad Scientist will enjoy a week full of Rocketry and Robotics.  From our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system, this hands-on program sends children on a quest for exploration! Comets, planets,stars and more are all waiting to be discovered. Learn about the four forces of flight, the challenges of space travel, and explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build your own Skyblazer II Rocket™! Explore circuits & electricity, robotic sensors, gears & advanced robotic applications. Play with different robots types while exploring their future capabilities. Investigate robotic fundamentals & build a robot to take home!  What creative camper will design tomorrow’s future robots?  

ADVANCED ROBOTICS and MISSION: Coding July 23-27 Grades 4-6 $305

Children will learn how robotics and coding works in our world today and how these technologies will continue to affect our future! They will engage in the mechanical aspects of robots, with gears, gear ratios, torque, hydraulics, and pneumatics through hands-on activities include building gear sets, operating a robotic arm, and building their own Kingii dragon to take home. Plus they will be introduced to the world of coding/computer programing with Mission: Code. Through a fun online game environment where children will give an online robot they create a set of instructions (code) to follow in order to solve each level. Each coding session provides kids with a fundamental skill set including algorithms, functions, relative directions and sequences through online and offline activities. The best part – the fun can continue at home as children will have access to Mission: Code anywhere.  Campers will need to bring a laptop or tablet with access to Google Chrome.
