Over 6 different themes to choose from to spark ANY child's interests!Full Day School Age Camps (FDC)
The Chemistry Mystery (ages 6-12) -
What’s the mystery all
about? Find out in this camp all about cool chemistry. We’ll
explore the basics of chemistry with some radical reactions and slippery
slime! Want to know who stole the ice cream? Become a detective
and use evidence and clues to catch the crook. After we’ve
fingerprinted the felon with our own Personal Profiler, we’ll celebrate by
making and eating our own ice cream! Crack codes, get crazy with
chemistry, and even make your own chocolate candy!
Wild Science (ages 6-12)
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
and build their own eco-system.
How Does it Work? (ages 6-12)
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!
While Thomas Edison said invention is 10%
inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% FUN! Children will
overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines,
tips from famous inventors and the most important of all – their mind. With
a little bit of ingenuity children will create catapults and forts,
construct working light sticks to take home and assemble a set of circuits
with batteries and light bulbs.
Red Hot Robots (ages 6-12)
Join Mad Science and our Radical Robots for a scientific
journey through circuitry & sensors.
Explore several different types of robots….robots that follow lines
and sounds, robotic arms like the ones you see in the big factories on TV
(well, smaller than that, but you get the picture). You will even play tag with robots that
you control! Complete the camp by
building your own robot to take home!
Secret Agent Lab (ages 6-12)
Look out 007—the Mad Science Spy Academy is in
session! Using powers of observations and the Inspectikit, our young forensic scientists will have
all they need to get started on their detective adventure.
a super spy and learn clever ways of performing tasks in this hands-on view
at the science that spies use. From decoding messages to metal detectors
and night vision, campers will have the opportunity to check out spy
equipment and step into the shoes of a spy in action!
Half Day School Age Camps (HDC)
| || NASA: Journey Into Outer Space - 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™! Travel to the end of the rainbow and make a sunset, use a Gravitational Launcher to see how NASA places satellites into outer space, fly your own cosmic disc and create your own Stereoscopic Viewer. |

Crazy Chemworks - Shake up a flask of fun in the lab as a junior chemist! These five half-days of chemistry are packed solid with cool reactions. Campers put on some goggles and change liquid to solid and back again. They get to handle laboratory tools, build and break molecules, and pick up some tricks on chemical changes.
Day Preschool Camps (HDC)
Sprouting Scientists (ages 3-5) - Mad Science explores the way things grow in this
“down-to-earth”, half day preschool camp.
Learn about plants by dissecting seeds, making leaf rubbings, and
creating farmable fruit and veggie prints. Investigate the world of worms…yes,
WORMS! Put on your Bee-utiful Bug
Costume and flutter by the camp as you learn about one of a flower’s favorite
pollinators! Come see what the buzz is all about! You can even make your very
own butterfly bracelets!
Water Works! (ages 3-5) - Water is more
complicated than it looks and through this exciting camp, preschoolers will learn
all about the different properties of water.
They will learn about sea life, density and buoyancy! Children will experiment with dry ice and
water, create their very own water art and discover how water can be the most
powerful force on earth. We will make our own wave motion modulators, bubble
wands and pet tornados to take home! Preschoolers will be amazed at how much
they can do with WATER!
