Slippery Slime Adventures!

What is slime? Where does it come from? How do you make it? Join us for a week full of crazy slippery slimy adventures. Learn about the science behind polymers such as slime, silly putty, bounce balls and more. Explore what other polymers are there and what can we do with them during our daily lives. Investigate the properties of balloons and even have a water balloon fight! Slime olympics are in order so join us as a participant in this very important competition!


 

Red Hot Robotics & Wacky Watts!

Join us for a week of fun with amazing robots! Learn about the uses of robots in our world and spend time experimenting with your very own super cool robot! Experiment with sound sensing robots, line-tracking robots, amphibious robots and robots that can even play soccer! Discover the science of circuits and how robots use sensors to explore things around them. Use your skills to build your very own working robot to take home with you! Join us for the afternoon for a wacky adventure with electrifying science! Learn about conducts, magnets and watts!
 

  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!

 

 Mad Robotics & STEM Experiments!

You loved our Red Hot Robots too much and want more??! Join us for another week of robots where you will get to build a more advanced robot. Use your skills from the previous camp to develop obstacle courses and races for your newly develop robots. Join us for the afternoon and get ready to explore the use of robots in challenging experiments based on science, technology, engineering and math! Don’t miss out on challenging your brain in a fun filled competitive week! 


 

NASA: The Academy of Future Space Explorers 

Prepare to travel to the stars and beyond in this exciting program! Fasten your seat belts as we take a journey into outer space! We will explore the cosmos, from stars, to planets to asteroids and comets; you will truly be ready to blast off after every class! This program was designed in an exclusive partnership with NASA, and is not offered by any other enrichment organization. Over the course of this amazing and exciting program, they will create star boxes, cosmic chronometers, comets, and even a Rocket that they will take home with them! They will also take part in amazing rocket launch that will let their minds travel among the stars! Don’t be left behind on earth, by missing out on this fantastic program! Once the countdown begins, we can only Blast Off!!

 

 

Sticky Science!

Ever wonder how many metal washer can stick to duck tape? No...well you should :) In this very sticky 3 day camp we will explore the crazy properties of tape, glue, molasses, corn syrup and more. Here at Mad Science we love competitions, so once you have learned their properties get ready for the stickiest competition ever! Dive into the world of chemistry to create sticky concoctions and maybe even learn how to make an edible one - your very own Cotton Candy!


 

 Crazy Chem Works Scientists

In this awesome Mad Science program, we will take on the role of Jr. Chemist as we create and concoct with science! From super sticky stuff to the amazing dry ice-capades, each class will take you on a journey through hands-on and amazing science!  Create crazy chemical reactions, that pop, fizz, and even experiments that glow in the dark! Piece by piece through out our program you will get to put together your very own home lab, complete with beakers, test tubes and all the tools of a great Mad Scientist! Don’t miss out Crazy Chem Works! 

 

The Science of Summer 

Join us this summer as we explore all the different areas of science! Don’t look now…or well … actually do look, as we use our eyes in Optical Illusions and create their own periscope. Just when they thought they’ve had all of the awesome science they can handle, its time for Lights…Color...ACTION!! as we create indoor fireworks and lighten things up with fantastic lights and color displays, and as a grand finale to this amazing program the kids will learn all about heat and get to make their own cotton candy to eat!!

 

 

Super Spies & Daring Detectives!

Mad Science Spy Academy camp will help you sharpen your special operative skills as you learn about the secret world of espionage. The key to being a great spy is your ability to use science to “sniff” out your suspects and uncover their secrets. Use your skills of listening, testing, and observation as we investigate fingerprints, handwriting and shoeprints to reveal the identity of our suspects. Learn how to use spy gear such as metal detectors, spy ears, and motion sensors, as well as how to communicate using code. Dissect debris for evidence and learn how to test the different chemicals found. Be ready to solve a crime by the end of the week! 

  

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 sitness a volcanic eruption, and learn how magnets can help search for shipwrecks. They will work together to design & build bidges 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! 

 

  

   Brixology - LEGO® Bricks & Energetic Engineering 
 BRIXOLOGY Camp sets the foundation for our next generation of makers! Kids 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!
