New one day camps!
Team up with your fellow camp inventors to explore the inventions of others--women, kids, Rube Goldberg, Thomas Edison and more. Draw inspiration from the wacky and the practical things that have been invented. The goal of this camp is to understand that we have no limitations...our dreams will inspire invention!
Countdown to Launch
Investigate Newton's Laws of Motion first-hand. Learn about propulsion with air-propelled miniature rockets. Then, work on designing your own! Experience a real rocket launch when you fire off a rocket like the one you built.
Principles of Flight
From the basic principles of flight to building airplanes, testing them in wind tunnels, to hovercraft and balloon-copter building, children will understand what makes things fly and how different types of aircraft fly. Campers will take home a rubber band powered airplane, various paper airplane designs, balloon-copters, boomerangs and mini Frisbees, knowing how each of them fly!
Join Mad Science and our Radical Robots for a scientific journey through circuitry and sensors. Explore several different types of robots including ones that follow lines and sounds. Complete this one day camp by building your own robot to take home!
