Your camper is immersed in fun, hands-on learning each camp day, including exciting projects and activities. There is a make-and-take-home project every day (and more than one on some days!). Topics like Robotics, Rocketry, Forensics and space excites your child's mind and develops a passion for curiosity, knowledge and imaginative learning.

||STEM Genius: Science & Technology|
Have fun with chemistry in this exciting summer camp! Make a magical crystal garden and synthesize your own slime. Watch as smoke bellows from the NASA-styled rocket you build in class! Learn about our solar system and make a comet using everyday items! Have a “shocking” good time with a Van de Graff generator and experience lightning first-hand! All of this and more!
Forensics Lab a la CSI
Campers take part in CSI style 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. Campers will use science to connect the dots and help sniff out the suspects in this hands-on investigation into the science of sleuthing.
While Thomas Edison said "invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration", this camp is 100% fun! Campers 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, campers will create catapults and forts, construct working light sticks to take home, and assemble a set of circuits with batteries and light bulbs.
Mad Science invites you to launch your knowledge of rockets in our exciting Camp. This is your chance to be a rocket scientist! Explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build and launch your own rocket. Watch an amazing rocket launch as it soars to the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's everything from the earliest flying machines to the first rocket flights!
Secret Agent Lab
Moving with Science
Discover how science moves the world around you! This camp covers multiple areas of science, from biology to engineering to chemistry. Campers build bridges and other structures one day and then build a camera the next. They dissect owl pellets, grow crystal gardens, and so much more! Each day of camp includes activities where campers create amazing things to take home with them.
Robot Mania 2014
Learn all about the use of robotics in our world today and how technology will continue to affect our future! Campers will check out sound sensing robots, line tracking robots, amphibious robots, and even robots that play soccer! They will delve into the science of circuits and sensors. Over the course of the camp, they will build their very own working robot to take home!
Rocket Ride to Space
Blast-off your knowledge of aerodynamics and flight! This camp is an intense, exciting study on rockets. Campers build their very own rockets and planes, They experiment with different kinds of propulsion systems. And they definitely launch and recover rockets! Each day of camp includes activities where campers create amazing things to take home with them.
STEM Genius Engineering & Math
This summer dig into STEM to be even smarter when you return to school in the Fall. You will love discovering more about Engineering (applying knowledge to design solutions) and Math (the study of patterns and relationships). Have fun and learn at the same time! Team up with friends to strengthen your understanding of energy sources, structures, ocean mechanics, and much more through hands-on experiments!
Advanced Robotics: Featuring Lego Mindstorms
Children learn about the history of robotics, from literature to engineering advancements. They form robotics teams to brainstorm and then design specialized robots. They will also learn about the mechanical aspects of robots, with gears, gear ratios, torque, hydraulics, and pneumatics. Hands-on activities include building dear sets and operating a robotic arm to retrieve their snack! Robot-building time provides children the opportunity to examine their robots with a circuit-savvy eye. (Ages 10-12 yrs)
Mad Science ALL STARS!
Earth the Amazing Planet
STEM Genius- Science and Technology
This summer dig into STEM to be even smarter when you return to school in the Fall. You will love discovering more about Science (understanding nature) and Technology (modifying the world to improve human comfort). Have fun and learn at the same time! Team up with friends to strengthen your understanding of energy sources, structures, ocean mechanics, and much more through hands-on experiments
