Science Explorers

Programs For 6-11

Ready, Set, Science

For Children Ages 6 – 11

Join us for a dynamic week of hands-on Science! Each day we’ll explore a different topic, including making exciting gadgets as we explore electricity, building a circuit to create a buzzer, making an electromagnet, creating a device to detect static charge and constructing a working water wheel. Let’s explore the world of chemistry as we discover the secret colors in candy, conduct heat sensitive experiments to make “mood slime”, and make a mixture that acts like a liquid AND a solid, create a chemical reaction to launch film canister rockets, whip up some fizzy bath poppers and mix up a bubbling density concoction. Let explore engineering as we examine marvelous machines and discover how they make work easier and more fun! Compete with your friends in a pulley race, construct a lever to make a cool catapult, and explore gears that make wind-up toys. Finally, we’ll create colorful beach bags using chromatography, make super sidewalk chalk and build solar ovens!

Wacky World of Science!

For Children Ages 6 – 11

What do you get when you take the physics of motion, add in some electrifying experiments, and mix it up with some chemistry? Everyone has a blast! In our half day camp you’ll create your own motorized invention, experiment with light and flight, make your own kaleidoscope and experiment with giant floating bubbles. Stay for the full day and build your own motorized robot, use chromatography to separate the colors in candy, mix up some crazy chemical reactions, build an electric game, investigate the effects of air pressure, and compete in a tall tower engineering competition!

Potions, Powders And Polymers

For Children Ages 6 – 11

Is it science or magic? You’ll find out! You’ll create erupting foam monsters, conduct amazing air pressure experiments, dig for hidden treasures, investigate the science of illusions and build spectroscopes to view the spectrum of different types of light. We’ll reveal many mysteries of science as we investigate creepy creatures, learn troll tricks, capture a rainbow in a bottle, make instant snow, mix up glowing slime and conduct lab tests on mystery substances.
