We are excited to offer the following Summer Camps for 2016:
Brixology - Engineering Adventures - Brixology Camp sets the foundation for our next generation of makers! Children learn about different types of engineering and then team up to construct a different engineering-themed project using LEGO® bricks. They learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station. They explore mechanical engineering as they 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 their creativity to solve real-world design challenges, while developing their problem-solving and team-building skills. Let the tinkering begin! Campers receive daily custom Mad Science take home engineering projects.
NASA - Academy of Future Space Explorers - Mad Science and NASA have collaborated up to bring you the excitement and wonder of space in the NASA Space Academy camp. This is your chance to be a rocket scientist! Explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build your own rocket. Watch an amazing rocket launch as it soars to the sky.Use teamwork to complete an important space mission and build a model space station. Explore the farthest reaches of our solar system and create a lunar eclipse in our Mad Science planetary tour. This stellar camp is your ticket to the stars as you journey through the galaxy.
Crazy Chemworks - Shake up a flask of fun in the lab and become a junior chemist! Kids will both learn and apply the concepts, tools and techniques of real chemists! 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, learn about stages of matter with dry ice, and did we mention...Slime Olympics? YES!!! Campers have a blast as they make some crazy concoctions.
Secret Agent Lab - Secret Agent or Super Sleuth...why not both? Do you think you have what it takes to discover “who done it”, can you send secret messages and have what it takes to beat the laser challenge? If so, this camp is for you! From secret spy communications to forensic science, each day campers will sleuth out the answer to many of life’s mysteries! Each day campers will receive cool take home projects from making their own super spy dead drop device (is it really canned fruit...nope, it's a secret spy compartment) to their own fingerprint finder, crime scene solver, code breaker and more.
Eureka! Inventor’s Camp - Creative Contraption Warning! This is a camp designed by our own creative inventors! Each day campers will be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all… their mind. With a little bit of ingenuity they'll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege, fabricate innovative flying contraptions, design their own gizmo prototypes, and will even assemble a working Light Saber to take home. While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% fun!
School House Chess - This camp makes chess fun for 3 hours daily! We bring pieces to life using creative personalities. Our imaginative characters accelerate the learning process and fascinate children. Play with our giant chess set - the biggest you've ever seen! Find out why chess is the most popular game in the world, this camp covers all rules, strategies and tactics. Campers will enjoy many different game variations and activities. This camp is appropriate for beginners through advanced players.
