What sets our Mad Science Summer Camps apart from the rest? Our STEM compliant programming engages children with questioning and experimentation. Taking this hands on, inquiry-based approach gives campers a unique opportunity to have fun while applying critical thinking and problem solving skills on an individual and group level. Throughout a week of camp, we place an emphasis on trying new things, learning by doing, and enjoying the process of discovery. All Mad Science programs are developed by a team of professional educators, scientists, and entertainers to ensure they are accurate, educational, safe, and fun. Our very own Research and Development team also spends years developing and testing our curriculum. Kid tested, educator approved!
We offer 8 different camp themes throughout the summer: Super Duper Science Sampler, Brixology & Engineering, Robot Recruit, Spy Academy, Eureka! The Inventors Camp, Reactions in Action Chemistry Camp, My First Lab Preschool Camp, and our brand new Makers of the Future Camp! All camp topics are updated annually to make sure we are giving children the most innovative tools necessary to embark upon scientific discovery in a camp setting. Through the implementation of interactive demonstrations, children will learn how rocket propulsion thrusts rockets many feet above treeline or how chemical reactions can shoot a column of foam into the air. Through group work, children will experiment with programmable robots, make life saving inventions, and build a wind tunnel to test various flying devices. Through hands on projects, children may explore the technology that is used to design and build robots, fiber optics, and security devices. We don’t treat the term “fun and educational” as a cliche' but as a genuine goal to be met. Mad Science Summer Camps are truly unlike any summer camp you and your young one have experienced before!
