Mad Sciences S.T.E.M Camps
Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
Mad Science summer camps and vacation programs give kids the opportunity to learn about science through our interactive and hands-on science activities. Our summer science programs let children become junior scientists for the summer and embark on a series of science adventures!
June 19, 2017 to June 23, 2017: Inventors & Explorers
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!
July 10, 2017 to July 14, 2017: Rockets & Robots
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?
July 17, 2017 to July 21, 2017: Fun-gineering
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!
