Description

Get ready for the Bridges, Bricks, Blast-Off Brigade! 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!

Additional Information

EUREKA Camp: Rock, Paper, Scissors
Inventing means curiosity! Leonardo da Vinci started as an artist and developed many scientific observations that he recorded in his notebooks over the course of his lifetime. Typically Day 1 of this camp.
EUREKA Camp: Science Fiction
Inventing means dreaming! Children will design submarines that rise or sink, wind-up space stations, and design safety capsules for payloads returning from space among other space themed hands-on activities. Typically Day 5 of this camp.
EUREKA Camp: Shipwrecked
Inventing means necessity! Children are put on a "deserted island" in which they must work together to invent a means for collecting food and water, build shelters, bridges and learn about density among other hands-on activities. Typically Day 3 of camp
EUREKA Camp: Think Fast
Inventing means cooperation! The children then step into space by launching self-built rockets and loading a payload capsule puzzle. These flight fanatics go home with a squadron of paper airplanes for further test flights. Typically Day 4 of camp.
EUREKA Camp: Whiz Kids
Inventing means practicality! Children work together to form circuits and recreate Tesla's bright atmospher for the 1893 World's Fair along with other fun electrifying hands-on activities. Typically Day 2 of this camp.
