How Does It Work?

June 24 - 28, 2013
9:00am - 3:00pm
Ages 6 - 12

Cost $300.00

Take an in-depth look at the science behind everyday machines and cool science in this camp about engineering. We’ll see how your Jr. Mad Scientist brings their inner engineer to life while they construct an amazing kaleidoscope, learn about levers and automatons and create their own contraptions. In the process even become architects by building our own geodesic dome that we’ll even get a chance to climb inside!  


 

Chemistry Mystery 

July 1 - 3, 2013
9:00am - 3:00pm
(3 Days only)
Ages 6 - 12

Cost $180.00

What’s the mystery all about? Find out in this camp all about cool chemistry. We’ll explore the basics of chemistry with some radical reactions and slippery slime! Want to know who stole the ice cream? Become a detective and use evidence and clues to catch the crook. After we’ve fingerprinted the felon with our own Personal Profiler, we’ll celebrate by making and eating our own ice cream! Crack codes, get crazy with chemistry, and even make your own chocolate candy!


 

Red Hot Robots 

July 15 - 19, 2013
9:00am - 3:00pm
Ages 8 - 12

Cost $325.00

Join Mad Science and our Radical Robots for a scientific journey through circuitry & sensors. Explore several different types of robots….robots that follow lines and sounds, robotic arms like the ones you see in the big factories on TV (well, smaller than that, but you get the picture). You will even play tag with robots that you control! Complete the camp by building your own robot to take home!


 

Water Works! 

July 15 - 19, 2013
9:00am - 12:00pm
Ages 3 - 5

Cost $200.00

Water is more complicated than it looks and through this exciting camp, preschoolers will learn all about the different properties of water. They will learn about sea life, density and buoyancy! Children will experiment with dry ice and water, create their very own water art and discover how water can be the most powerful force on earth. We will make our own wave motion modulators, bubble wands and pet tornados to take home! Preschoolers will be amazed at how much they can do with WATER!


 

To the Lab...and Beyond! 

July 22 - 26, 2013
9:00am - 3:00pm
Ages 7 - 12

Cost $300.00

To the Lab…. Shake up a flask of fun in the lab as a junior chemist! These five half-days of chemistry are packed solid with cool reactions. They get to handle laboratory tools, build and break molecules, and pick up some tricks on chemical changes.
And Beyond…. From our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system, this hands-on program sends children on a quest for exploration! Comets, planets, stars and more are all waiting to be discovered.


 

Sprouting Scientists 

July 22 - 26, 2013
9:00am - 12:00pm
Ages 3 - 5

Cost $200.00

Mad Science explores the way things grow in this “down-to-earth”, half day preschool camp. Learn about plants by dissecting seeds, making leaf rubbings, and creating farmable fruit and veggie prints. Investigate the world of worms…yes, WORMS! Put on your Bee-utiful Bug Costume and flutter by the camp as you learn about one of a flower’s favorite pollinators! Come see what the buzz is all about! You can even make your very own butterfly bracelets!


 

Secret Agent Lab 

July 29 - August 2, 2013
9:00am - 3:00pm
Ages 6-12

Cost $300.00

 

Using powers of observations and the Inspectikit, our young forensic scientists will have all they need to get started on their detective adventure. Become a super spy and learn clever ways of performing tasks in this hands-on view at the science that spies use. From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision, campers will have the opportunity to check out spy equipment and step into the shoes of a spy in action!
