Our Program Topics:


 Crazy Chemworks: Shake up a flask of fun in the lab as a junior chemist! This hands-on and interactive program of chemistry for children ages 5-12 is packed solid with cool reactions. Students put on goggles and change liquid to solid and back again. They get to handle laboratory tools, build and break molecules, and pick up some tricks on chemical changes.
 NASA: The Academy of Future Space Explorers: From our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system, this hands-on program sends participants on a quest for exploration! Comets, planets, stars, and more are all waiting to be discovered. Learn about the four forces of flight, the challenges of space travel, and participate in a rocket launch!
 Brixology: Join us for Brixology, where students will use unique Mad Science designed LEGO® kits to build a different engineering-themed project in every class! They will use critical thinking, cooperation, and creative problem-solving to test and improve your creations! Each class will revolve around a different engineering theme- including mechanical, structural, and nautical engineering. Brixology sets the foundation for our next generation of makers!

Animals, Energy, and Robots: Explore the energy of motion and life under the ocean’s surface in this fast-paced program of science fun! Learn about robots, green energy sources, Newton’s three laws of motion and much more! Children build their own Robot Hand and explore renewable and non-renewable resources for power generation. They will explore the animal kingdom and learn about the life cycles of their favorite creatures.


 Minerals, Machines, and Movies: In this program, children will engross themselves in entomology (the study of insects) and search for clues to help crack a case. They will have the chance to inspect fluorescing minerals and see how simple machines lighten your load. They will also discover why science is the real star of the big screen and move out of the way of motorized toys. Finally, they will stage a statically charged indoor storm and go on a nutrient hunt.
 Eureka!: Overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors and most important of all – your mind! Create catapults and forts, build shelters, bridges, and learn about density. While Thomas Edison said “invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration,” this program is 100% FUN!

Secret Agent Lab: Develop your special agent and detective skills in this super hands-on program! Uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis. Sharpen your secret agent skills and discover how chemistry and the science of forensics can come to the aid of a secret agent. Identify and collect evidence - from fingerprints to tracks to trash! Secret agents-in-training will use science and awesome technological tools to connect the dots and help sniff out the suspects in this investigation into the science of sleuthing.


Grossology: The Science of our Bodies: This program offers a chance to explore just how gross our amazing bodies are! Discover cool chemical reactions, and get right down to the microscopic level to discover the stuff we're all made of—cells! Venture inward on a journey down the “Organ Trail” and explore all our body systems. Create an organ apron and a model lung to take home. Finish the week with an introduction to some of the gross body chemistry we all need, including burping, farting, spit and why we need mucus - make your own brain goo to keep!


 Mission Code: Join us in an online game that teaches programming by helping campers recognize the patterns and sequence structures involved in writing a line of code. Playing as a robot, your task is to get through each level, collecting stars or destroying rubies by creating a sequence starting with directional arrows, brackets and a hammer. As you advance, you'll have more obstacles in your way and get more tools to be able to make your way around more complex levels. You can even create your own level!. 

 *Descriptions are based on 8 weeks of programming.  Programs less than 8 weeks in length will include many, but not all, of the experiments listed.
