Our camps offer science and engineering topics in an atmosphere of inquiry. Sessions present activities designed to engage children and promote wonder, questions, and critical thinking.

Summer 2017

Registration Opens April 24th

Join us this summer for our all-new Summer Camps for kids ages 4-10ish years. We have three workshops that span six sessions, as follows:

 

The Art and Science of Bubbles and Color
June 12-16 

 

Join us as we explore Bubbles and Color both technically and artistically. The focus will be on asking questions, finding answers to all of the wonders of these topics present.  We’ll be both scientists and artists as we investigate these way-fun topics.

 

Monday-Tuesday-Bubbles
Wednesday-Friday- Color

Tinkering
June 26th-30th and July 30th – August 4th

 

Maker camps indeed.  These sessions are all about creating things that move: moving sound waves, moving up, moving on water, moving round and round and moving through the air.There will be much to do with planning and testing, revising and rebuilding.  Trial and Error will be our steadfast motto.  It’s not an exact science (quite yet) but loads of fun.
