The Amazing You! (preK, ages 4-5)
 Is your little one a burgeoning Medical Doctor, Dentist, or Biologist? Humans of all shapes and sizes will benefit from this fun-filled opportunity to explore the organs, systems and cells that make us who we are. This specially designed preschool camp takes children on a journey of self-discovery about the most important organisms around - THEMSELVES! Campers will gain a better understanding of the amazing "machine" they live in and use every day to taste, smell, hear, think and see.
  Little Green Thumbs (preK, ages 4-5)
 Blossoming minds will love this week! This camp teaches all about the amazing things that happen in the garden. Learn that plants, fruits, and vegetables start from seeds. Explore what they need to grow and survive and where they get those things as we study weather. Discover the role that bugs and butterflies play in making your garden grow.

Elementary Age Camps
6-12 yrs

           
EUREKA! - The Inventors' Camp (ages 6-12)
 Be inspired by the most famous inventors in history - Ben Franklin, the Wright Brothers, Leonardo da Vinci, Rube Goldberg! - and create your OWN inventions! Use their techniques to break through a series of modern day challenges. You will learn how to invent solutions and make them come to life, just like these legendary innovators did. Construct catapults and forts, design underwater vehicles, build a mini-amplifier, and assemble a working light saber to take home. Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, but this camp is 100% fun.
Castaway! (ages 6-12)
 An Ecological Adventure in Survival! - Campers will find themselves stranded on an island…now what? Campers work together using what supplies they have to learn to survive until they are rescued. They will create shelters, use water filtration systems, and study the animals and environment around them. Learn to harness the sun’s energy to create solar cookers, communicate without technology, the importance of teamwork and more! Campers will build daily projects themed around survival, critters, island resources, and escaping the island. Don't forget your new birdhouse and duct tape flip-flops on your journey back home!
  Underground Explorers (ages 6-12; recommend ages 8-12)
 Calling all Jr. Archaeologists! Uncover the mysteries of ancient civilizations and the history of Paleontology. Learn about the techniques, tools and artifacts that teach us about the history of humans on earth. Study bone fragments, pottery shards, amber deposits and fossils. Can you puzzle out the culture of a long lost city using only a handful of clues? 
  Slime Life (ages 6-12) *NEW for 2019*
 Whaaaat? Yep! Your life is SURROUNDED by Slime! We’re gonna get sticky and icky in this camp learning about guts and garbage and goo! The best part is that you’ll make (and take home) a new slime to match the message EVERY SINGLE DAY! Get Insta-famous with the Slime you make! Give us a thumbs up! Do it for the Gram! Remember: There’s no such thing as too much SLIME! (#SlimeLife)
  Radical Robots (ages 6-12) *NEW Robot for 2019*
 Robots are taking over! Learn all about robots and how they are used in our world. Perform experiments with sound-sensing robots, line-tracking robots, light-sensing robots and even robots that can play soccer! Throughout this camp, you will make your own robot and take it home at the end of the week! (An additional materials fee of $25 for the robot kit is due at the first day of camp.) And for whiz kids who finish early you can experiment with the amazing Parallax “Scribbler 2” robot with its Graphical User Interface programming language! 
NASA - Journey Into Outer Space (ages 6-12)
 It’s the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing! Mad Science and NASA have teamed up to bring you the excitement and wonder of space in this new voyage of discovery. See the principles of thrust and propulsion at work in a real rocket launch. Explore the atmosphere on Earth and beyond. Watch star dust burn, and journey through a galaxy as you investigate the life cycle of stars. Explore the farthest reaches of our solar system and create a lunar eclipse in the "mad" planetary tour. Probe the mysteries of meteors and bounce around satellite light as you learn about space phenomena. Experience the life of an astronaut as you suit up for a space flight and then perform spacecraft repairs. This is an experience that is truly out of this world!
Detective Madness (ages 6-12)
 Like to solve mysteries? Crack the case? Step into the shoes of a real detective. Use science to uncover evidence and analyze the hidden secrets of a case. Put cool sleuthing tools and proven forensic techniques to work and unravel mysteries that would stump even Sherlock Holmes! Ok, well maybe they would fool your brother. But they’d be CRAZY to think they can fool Detective You!
Flight Academy (ages 6-12)
 It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's...everything from the earliest flying machines to the first rocket flights. This hands-on program will let you learn all about aerodynamics and the world above us. Explore the basic principles of flight, build airplanes, test them in wind tunnels, ride a hovercraft and construct balloon copters. Discover the mysteries of the galaxy, learn about celestial navigation, and take home a rocket that you have built yourself. We'll be moving at light speed throughout this high velocity week!
Crazy Chemworks (ages 6-12)
 Get ready to lose your mind in the vast and exciting world of chemistry! This camp is full of reactions, observations, solutions, suspensions, explosions, concoctions, perplexions, digestions, reflections, and dalmatians (kidding), just to name a few! You will challenge your friends in the labware game, combat evaporation, be amazed at the awesome power of glue technology and trigger some shocking chemical reactions. You’ll snoop out counterfeit money, launch chemical explosions (not TOO big) and learn how and why the chemical world works. So dive into our fantastically fun pool of chemical experimentation!  Just don’t mix this one with that one or you might blow up the universe!
Mad Lab (ages 6-12)
 Come to the Mad Lab and go scientifically bonkers with a super cool variety of science topics. In Radical Reactions you’ll create gases, control chemical reactions and even generate power - with chemicals! In Chemical Counting you’ll see awesome chemical magic, build model molecules and electroplate coins! In Cell City you’ll build models of the inner machinery of cells, unravel DNA and break a secret code. In Birds and the Beasts you’ll examine bugs and birds and even what they just ate - yuck! In Organ Trail you’ll learn about the amazing YOU from the inside out - from bones to brains to heart and lungs and more!
