    WEEK 1 (Monday-Friday) July 29-Aug. 2, 2019 -- CANCELLED 7/25/19

    This STEM program allows kids to step into the shoes of an engineer by using LEGO® bricks to build different engineering-themed projects in each class; exploring engineering fields including mechanical, structural, aerospace, nautical, and bioengineering; using critical thinking, cooperation, and creative problem-solving to test and improve creations; and experiencing extended learning with a take-home project to reinforce each concept.

    WEEK 2 (Monday-Friday) Aug. 5-Aug. 9, 2019

    Slimy Potions*
    Let's explore the depths of the Mad Science Laboratory where we harness the marvelous powers of liquids! In our Mad Science lab we will explore the PH Scale, participate in the Dry Ice Capades, and the Slime Olympics! Learn the secret of making tootsie rolls at home! Make bath fizzers, sidewalk chalk, and more! Join us for a Mad "hands-on" experience as a Junior Mad Scientist! *Food products are used in this class. 

    WEEK 3 (Monday-Friday) Aug. 12-Aug. 16, 2019

    NASA Academy of Future Space Explorers
    Students set off on a voyage to discover the Solar System. We will explore topics such as Planets and Moons, Sun and Stars, Space Phenomena, Rocket Science and Space Travel, Space Technology and Living in Space!

    WEEK 4 (Mon-Fri) Aug. 19-Aug. 24, 2019 -- CANCELLED 8/16/19

    Inventor's Camp
    Campers will overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors and the most important of all -- their mind! With a little bit of ingenuity, campers will create catapults and forts, construct working light sticks to bring home and a set of circuits with batteries and light bulbs. While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% FUN!
