MAD SCIENCE SUMMER CAMP 2018 

Gallons of green glowing liquids; strange objects flying through the air; messages written in secret code; autonomous robots; mystery substances that change from solid to liquid in seconds.... Is this a fictional account of a visit to another planet?
No… it's a Mad Science Summer Camp! Our camps are truly unique experiences for children.

Mad Science is noted for its trademark 'edu-tainment' philosophy, which cultivates incredible enthusiasm and a sense of wonder in children. We believe that children are born scientists. Children are naturally curious about the world around them, and we believe that we must harness that curiosity in today's youth in order to help foster a lifelong love of science and learning. Our adherence to our core philosophies and beliefs that science should be fun and inquiry based, allows us to continually engage our campers natural curiosity and desire to touch, see and do. We provide them with the opportunity to engage in hands-on exploration and witness truly amazing scientific phenomena.

 All Camps run 9am-3pm, M-F throughout the summer

Aftercare available in our Jupiter Lab only

 

Camps for children entering 1st – 6th grade in Fall ‘18:

 

WILD ADVENTURES

Nature is calling…will you answer?

In this camp, children will learn about the critters and beasts that roam our beautiful planet. The kids will dissect owl pellets, build an insect and bird house and scavenge for food like the animals do. They will also make awesome discoveries about Earth and what part they can play in keeping it healthy.  They will make paper, learn about recycling,  build their own cell and even cook solar nachos!  

 

 

 

 

 

FUN-gineering

Take an in-depth look at the science behind everyday machines and cool science in this camp about engineering.  We’ll see how your Jr. Mad Scientist brings their inner engineer to life while they construct an amazing kaleidoscope, learn about levers and automatons and create their own contraptions.  In the process even become architects by building our own geodesic dome that we’ll even get a chance to climb inside!

 

 

 

 

SPY ACADEMY

Ever dream of becoming a secret agent? We'll start with the basics: From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision. Campers will have the opportunity to check out spy tech equipment and take home lots of gadgets like spy glasses! Step into the shoes of a detective as you uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis! Figure out the science of forensics in a hands-on look at crime scenes! Become a super spy and learn clever ways of performing tasks as we take a journey into the world of investigation that spies use! 

 

 

 

 

 

INVENTORS & EXPLORERS

Creative Contraption Warning! This is a camp designed by you—the Inventor! Each day you’ll be given a series of challenges which must be overcome by using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – your mind! With a little bit of ingenuity you’ll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege, fabricate a winning Egg Drop design, construct a dancing robot and assemble a working light saber to take home. While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% fun!

 

Camps for children entering 1st – 3rd grade in Fall ‘18:

ROCKETS & ROBOTS

Your Jr. Mad Scientist will enjoy a week full of Rocketry and Robotics.  From our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system, this hands-on program sends children 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 explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build your own Skyblazer II Rocket™! Explore circuits & electricity, robotic sensors, gears & advanced robotic applications. Play with different robots types while exploring their future capabilities. Investigate robotic fundamentals & build a robot to take home!  What creative camper will design tomorrow’s future robots?  

 

 

 

 

Camp for children entering 4th -6th grade in Fall ‘18:

ADVANCED ROBOTICS and MISSION: CODE 

Children will learn how robotics and coding works in our world today and how these technologies will continue to affect our future! They will engage in the mechanical aspects of robots, with gears, gear ratios, torque, hydraulics, and pneumatics through hands-on activities include building gear sets, operating a robotic arm, and building their own Kingii dragon to take home. Plus they will be introduced to the world of coding/computer programing with Mission: Code. Through a fun online game environment where children will give an online robot they create a set of instructions (code) to follow in order to solve each level. Each coding session provides kids with a fundamental skill set including algorithms, functions, relative directions and sequences through online and offline activities. The best part – the fun can continue at home as children will have access to Mission: Code anywhere.  Campers will need to bring a laptop or tablet with access to Google Chrome




MY FIRST LAB (Pre-K)

This camp is a great introduction to science. Preschoolers explore their five senses through hands-on discovery. Children use a magnifying glass to discover the world of creepy crawly creatures. Campers become paleontologists by searching for fossils and participating in a mini dinosaur dig. Finally, take an exciting mission with Mad Science to explore the planets, moons and stars. Take home projects like a T-Rex tooth model and more!

REFUND POLICY

For all camp registrations (i.e. our online registration system, phone-in, paper), cancellations that are communicated more than 45 days prior to the start of the camp are subject to a refund, minus a $25 service charge. Cancellations that are communicated between 8 and 45 days prior to the start of the camp will be given a refund, minus a $50 service charge. No refunds will be given for cancellations inside of 8 days prior to the start of the camp, as we often are under obligation to pay the camp facility a facility-fee at that point in time.
