ALL NEW! Mad Science Brixology Camp - Limited Space available for Summer 2016!
Eureka! - The Inventors Camp
Inventing means curiosity, practicality, necessity, and imagining the future! Join us in our Eureka Camp as we step into outer space by launching self-built stomp rockets. Children will witness a volcanic eruption, and learn how magnets can help search for shipwrecks. They will work together to design & build bridges and boats to eventually escape an island and find their way home! Children will even have the chance to launch projectiles with catapults and a large trebuchet!
Red Hot Robotics!
Build your very own robot and learn the incredible things robots can do! Experiment with robotic arms and infrared robots. Work with simple machines that can lift objects and launch them into the air, and even make your very own catapult! Create your own scientific reaction while learning about the nuts and bolts of the universe!
Earth Explorers & Crawlin' Critters
Do you enjoy excitement and adventure and danger? Ok... Well maybe not danger but some really cool stuff!!! You will traverse the land as you explore nature and its many beasts and you’ll discover new and exciting things every day! You will be able to track animals, build bird habitats, and ever mix your own kind of birdseed!! Watch out though as you test for Acid Rain!!!

We are going to travel to the center of earth and find out just what our planet is made of!! We will scrutinize gems, and then be able to take some home!! Then we will get explosive with a Volcano!!!! Don’t miss out as we get deep into Mineral Mania and enter into... THE WILD!
Rocketry - Rocket Building
Blast your way into rocket science! Learn about Space travel; build your own rocket made of recycled materials. Investigate anti-gravity and Newtons Laws of Motion first-hand. Learn about propulsion with air propelled miniature rockets. Make your own comet and create bubbling potions with Dry Ice. Learn about parachutes, streamers, helicopters, and other types of recovery systems in this fun-filled day. Demonstrate the rocket principles that you have learned all week with a launching finale!
Secret Agent Lab
Become a science detective and solve crimes using scientific principals. Step into the shoes of a detective as you learn forensic science techniques in this fun filled who dunnit program. Create your own detective tool kit and use it to collect and analyze evidence from the crime scene. Learn about fingerprints, tooth prints and footprints and take home your very own identification profile kit.
Roll your way into robot science. Experiment with different robot designs, as you learn what makes a robot work. Discover the world of robots as we investigate the differences between humans and their robotic counterparts. Each day some time will be spent perfecting a real working robot that we will finish and take home on Friday.
