Not sure about sending your kids to camp this summer? Keep them engaged and sign them up for our online summer STEM camps! We do many of the same activities planned for our camps at Discover Science Center, but kids do them at home as our Educators lead them online, and we provide supplies. We hope they will join us this summer in-person or online!
SHARK WEEK July 6-10
Ages 6-11 - This week, campers investigate sharks and their anatomy, and how researchers study sharks. We track migration patterns and create an investigative report on their favorite shark. Campers create shark tooth jewelry, and look at shark skin under a microscope.
SPACE EXPLORERS July 13-17
Ages 6-11 - Campers study space by exploring our solar system, building and launching rockets, and conducting experiments using the sun’s rays. Space explorers design and build a space station, make a model of the moon’s surface, and more.
MOVIE-INSPIRED SCIENCE July 20-24
Ages 6-11 - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math experiments inspired by the big screen. We experiment with "Harry Potter" chemistry potions, "The Incredibles" physics of super powers, "Star Wars" space science, "The LEGO Movie" engineering, and more.
GEOLOGY AND PALEONTOLOGY July 27-31
Ages 6-11 - This week, campers investigate characteristics of rocks and gemstones, learn about crystallization as they crack open their own geodes, study dinosaurs and how they lived, and dig like a paleontologist as they search for prehistoric life forms.
SCIENCE OF MOTION August 3-7
Ages 6-11 - Campers design and create elaborate Rube Goldberg contraptions to perform a simple task, engineer rollercoasters, design catapults and paper airplanes to study force and motion and more.
NATURE SCIENCE August 10-14
Ages 6-11 - Campers explore the world around them as they investigate the biology and ecology of plants and animals and the environment they inhabit. We dissect owl pellets, investigate bugs, learn about mosses, lichens and mushrooms and more!
