Mission — “We aim to spark the imagination and curiosity of children everywhere by providing them with fun, entertaining and educational activities that instill a clear understanding of what science is really about and how it affects the world around them.”

July 3 – 7 No Camp 7/4
Underground Explorers
Learn about archaeology and the techniques scientists use to excavate long lost cities. Discover ancient civilizations and the tools and artifacts they used in everyday life. Study bone fragments, pottery shards, amber deposits, and fossils; understand what they can tell us about history. Make and take-home projects each day, like a fossil reproduction, an amber time capsule, coins from around the world!
 
Secret Agent Lab: Funky Forensics
Focus on the science of forensics in this hands-on look at crime scenes. Identify and collect evidence, from fingerprints to tracks to trash! Recreate the scene of a crime using clues and detailed observations. Use science to connect the dots and help sniff out the suspects in this hands-on investigation into the science of sleuthing!
 
July 17 – 21
Chemical Curiosities
Become a skilled science sleuth while investigating the role of chemistry at the scene of a crime! Learn about chemical reactions as you grow crystals. We will use dental alginate to make fabulous finger molds and the chemistry continues as we create sidewalk chalk from scratch, design chromatography bandanas to take home, and even make your very own ice cream!
 
Super Slimy Smoky Science
Dive into a variety of scientific fields as you mix and stretch silly putty and slime, copperplate nickels, and investigate the mysteries of optical illusions. Become captivated by lasers, dry ice, watch hair-raising Van de Graaff experiments, help solve a mystery, and so much more! Tinker with circuits, catapults, and experience what happens when you mix science and fun!
 
August 7 – 11
Eureka Launching with Legends
Anyone can be an inventor! Discover the work of da Vinci, Edison, Tesla, and Benjamin Franklin and use what you learn to invent solutions to everyday problems. You’ll prepare patent proposals, receive a patent certificate, build your own catapult, and even launch projectiles off a large trebuchet!  You’ll bring home countless cool inventions!
 
Brixology
Our LEGO™ BRIXOLOGY camp was developed in partnership with LEGO™ Master Builders!  Team up to build exclusive creations that will test your engineering abilities!  Build carnival rides, drawing machines, mechanical animals, truss bridges and space stations. Try your hand at aerospace, nautical, biomechanical, and even structural engineering!  Let the tinkering begin!
