Crazy Chemworks

Shake up a flask of fun in the lab and become a junior chemist! Learn to recognize chemical reactions and mix up a few reactive ingredients for some sensational results. Check out the colors of chemistry with the power of pH paper and create a stopper-popping reaction. Probe the properties of light and discover some unusual applications of glow-in-the-dark technology. Campers have a blast as they make some crazy concoctions. Take-home projects include a reaction tube kit, atomic coins, slippery slime, Professor Beakerdude, and more!

Loco-Motion: Wheels, Wings, and the "Wright" Stuff

It’s all about movin’! We’ll spend the week looking into how things move and what forces are behind them. Race mini-hovercrafts and learn about friction. Explore the galaxy and study rocket flight. Launch a few rockets too! Keep racing with rubber band-powered cars and helo-flyers. What’s inertia? Use an ancient flying machine as your guide to build a cool kite. We’ll be movin’ and groovin’, so fasten your seat belts for motion, motion, and more motion.

S.T.E.A.M. Rollers

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. Do you get bored easily? Not in this camp. Every day is a new theme. One day you get Crazy Chemistry and make your own sidewalk chalk and create a crystal garden. Then each day you’ll “roll” into something new, like Jr. Architects, where you’ll build all kinds of stuff, from pasta skyscrapers to arches; Shutterbugs using kaleidoscopes and camera obscuras to catch your shadows; Space Day to explore the mysteries of the solar system; and the Science of Magic where you’ll learn how magicians use our assumptions and perceptions about how the world works to entertain us. If variety is your bag, this camp is for you.

Ages: 7 – 12
Dates: July 18 – 22

Brixology - ALL NEW!

Brixology Camp sets the foundation for our next generation of makers! Kids will learn about different types of engineering and then team up to construct an engineering-themed project using Lego bricks. They will learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station. We will move on to explore mechanical engineering as we build boats and vehicles. That’s not all, from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss bridges, your future engineer will build upon his/her creativity to solve real-world design challenges, while developing their problem-solving and team-building skills. Let the tinkering begin!

Ages: 8 – 12
