Summer Camps for ages 7-11:
Crazy Coding with Rad Robots
Come and explore the world of programming, sensors and artificial intelligence. Campers will learn not only the anatomy of a robot, but how to program them as well. We’ll teach the basics of sequential key programming and algorithms as we help the robots play games, complete tasks, and respond to commands through its various sensors. This awesome hands on experience will leave your child saying “Domo arigato.”
Slime of My Life
We’ve taken our after-school club programs from 2018-19 and turned them into a fun-filled, week-long camp that features a new slime every day, in addition to exploring an array of amazing science! In the half day morning camp we will make chalkboard slime and all new color changing slime and magnetic slime! In addition, we’ll build inventions like catapults, discover how electricity and circuits work by making conductive dough, and explore biology as we extract DNA from a banana and dissect an owl pellet. Stay for the full day and we’ll examine anatomy as we make a model lung and observe a real sheep heart, continue our exploration of circuits as we send messages via Morse code and build a metal detector to test objects to see if they are conductors or insulators, and explore wonders of the earth as we erupt a volcano and experiment with pollination. For children ages 7-11.
Weekly Schedule Coming Soon.
Far Out Space Academy
3…2…1 BLAST OFF to discovering space and flight! Half day campers will explore the stars and constellations as you take an out-of-this-world sky tour in our homemade planetarium, prepare for lift-off as you build and launch your own rocket while learning about Newton’s Laws of Motion, and complete a mission to Mars as you design and build your own model space station. Full day campers will continue to use their astronaut wits as we build air powered nano-rovers, make craters and dry ice comets, and work in engineering teams to construct space capsules that will be used to launch “eggstronauts”! Come join us on our mission through outer space! For children ages 7-11.
Potions, Powders & Polymers
Is it science or magic? You’ll find out! In our half day camp you’ll create erupting foam monsters, conduct amazing air pressure experiments, dig for hidden treasures, investigate the science of illusions and build spectroscopes to view the spectrum of different types of light. Stay for the full day and we’ll reveal many mysteries of science as we investigate creepy creatures, learn troll tricks, capture a rainbow in a bottle, make instant snow, mix up glowing slime and conduct lab tests on mystery substances. For children ages 7-11.
Take a Dive
Dive into the world of marine biology and oceanography! In our morning day camp you’ll dissect a real shark, participate in a fisherman’s challenge, examine the anatomy of a fish and learn the ancient technique of gyotaku or “fish rubbing”, learn to survive at sea with a homemade solar still, create a kelp forest and make your own submarine. Stay for the full day camp and come face-to-face with some unique sea creatures! You’ll complete a squid dissection, bring to life genuine Triassic Triops, conduct a whale adaptations lab, and examine many weird wonders that live under the sea! For children ages 7-11.
Summer Camps for ages 4-6:
Jr. Investigative Team Ages 4-6 – Half Day only
“Hey there, future Science Explorers, do we have the camp for you!” Join our team of curious tiny-techs as we explore a new theme each day. We will create an edible ocean, experiment with a “magic” magnet bottle, investigate butterflies, discover how birds adapt to their environments and make colorful sidewalk chalk! Children are never too young to be scientists! Half day only for ages 4-6.
Jr. Investigative Daily Schedule Coming Soon
*We proudly offer our summers camps to young science enthusiasts throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland!
