Come one, come all, and hop on the MAKER train! A cutting edge camp for the emerging inventor, designer, tinkerer, budding engineer, and artist. Designed for the young innovative and inventive minds that will MAKE our future. Activate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) thinking through exploration and creation in the topics of robotics, animation, coding, game design, electricity, energy, and mechanics. Create a wild range of gizmos and gadgets using Little Bits and paper circuity. Technology merges with art as we create clay and stop animation shorts. Explore robotics and learn programming basics with bluetooth enabled robots and an app-enabled social robot that uses color sequencing. Dive further into the world of coding and make your own video game. Stimulate your design skills and MAKE thinks that move! Invent playable electromechanical devices and energy transforming contraptions. Extend learning at home by building your own wiggle bot, pyramid catapult, spinning contraption, mechanical grabber, and much more. Discover the marvels and the whys of science in this camp for ALL developing minds. Come MAKE the future with us!

 


 

Inspire the inventor and scientist in you during this week of discovery and invention. Each day children will be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – your mind! If you were stranded on a desert island how would you survive? You will need to build shelter, find food and purify water, protect yourself and your teammates from the elements and find a way off the island. Journey to the future and examine the ultramodern inventions of the 23rd century. Then design the future - today! Create mini light sabers, mini-space stations, and electric flying contraptions. With a little bit of ingenuity, you’ll construct catapults and forts, build Ruberg contraptions that perform simple tasks, and experiment with humanoid robots. Take home projects include ping-pong ball launchers, mousetrap contraption cars, mystery sticks, tubular blow darts, and other wacky contraptions. While Thomas Edison said, “invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration” this camp is 100% FUN!

Campers step into the shoes of engineers in this Mad Science FUN'gineered camp full of rockets, wacky machines, flying devices, roller coasters, and BRICKS! We have merged 2 days of our BRIXOLOGY program with 3 days of our “Adventures in Engineering” Camp to inspire our next generation of engineers in mechanical, structural, aerospace, and nautical engineering. For two days, children are challenged to use LEGO® bricks to assemble a space station and a mechanized drawing machine. They will also use their creativity to solve real-world design challenges like building a sailboat slalom and off-world habitat. They build skyscrapers and are challenged to build the strongest bridge. Blast off a variety of rockets propelled my model engines, air, and water. Discover Newton’s Laws of Motion with a cool crash test dummy experiment and create a variety of boat and submarine designs. Children build and take-home projects like micro-pincher's, a wooden cube puzzle, balloon car, and flying fizzler rockets. Brixology take-homes are the Wave Rider Boat and Skyroller Zipline cable car which are compatible with campers LEGO® bricks at home. Come give your future engineer the opportunity to have a blast exploring all the wonders the world of engineering holds!

My son Jamie just finished the Eureka camp with Circuit CC and Transformer Trey. He said it was the best camp he has ever done! He loved the instructors and they filled every single day with plenty of science activities. The instructors were organized and professional. Jamie was more and more excited to go back with each passing day. I would highly recommend this camp and these instructors!

My son LOVES Mad Science and has learned so much. At 10 years old he says that he already knows that he wants to grow up to do something in the science field. He loves to attend every camp, every parents night out, and every after school program that he can. Thank you for providing such a fun learning environment for these kids!

We signed up for this last minute and am so glad we did! After the first day I asked my 5 year old daughter how she felt and her response was an enthusiastic "I feel PROUD of myself!" She was so excited about everything she made, and she has been discussing concepts she learned and recognizing their application in her every day life. I am not sure how they adapt the camp for the different age groups to make exciting for the higher grades, but this is something I would ask as a parent if my child was older. I was very impressed with this camp!

My daughter is eight and was a little hesitant about going on Monday morning. At pick up on Monday she couldnot stop talking about all the things they did. My laid back 11 year old son was just as chatty and when the week of Reactions in Action camp was over I asked him what he thought of his week. His response was "Mom, it was facinating!!" I couldn't have asked for more. We are excited about next year. My son hopes that you create a camp for 13 and up.
