Mad Science Camps

Survival! Plants, Predators & Prey  Ages 6-12
 
Predator or Prey; which will you be? In our newly revamped nature/environmental camp, kids will explore how animals, big and small, adapt to life here on earth. Campers will experience how birds and beasts catch their prey without becoming someone else's lunch and will then be challenged to survive in the pulse pounding "Food Chain Survival" game. Kids will also discover what Mr. Owl had on his dinner plate during the famous owl pellet dissection. We'll also have fun finding and magnifying nature’s smaller critters—from insects to pond slime. Campers will build a real birdhouse to take home and will have creepy-crawly fun building a bughouse and searching for tenants! In addition, kids will enjoy hands-on fun learning how changes in wind, water and temperature can affect Earth's inhabitants.

Rocking Robots Ages 7-12
Children will step into the shoes of a rocket scientist and learn the fundamentals of flight, propulsion and rocket design. We’ll have fun exploring astronomy and trying out various flight designs from hot air balloons to hovercrafts (and many more!). “Launch Day” will bring some real excitement to your budding astronaut! Kids will build rockets as well as discover the fundamental concepts involved in launching and recovering many different types of rockets. Students will make and take home their own complete Mad Science rocket.

Mad Science E2- Engineering Explorers Ages 7-12
Whether your child loves to build things or destroy them, this week of camp includes both! The junior Mad Science engineers will design and build bridges and " skyscrapers" using simple tools and their imaginations. Kids will even construct a geodesic dome big enough for all the campers to site inside! Then the machine madness starts as they discover how many different machines, simple & complex, we use in our daily lives. Campers will have fun designing simple machines using pulleys, wedges, screws and levers. Then we move on to engineering in action- your kids work together to brainstorm, design, test, evaluate and redesign problem- solving contraptions.
