Our Virtual Camp Themes
Science in Motion
It's a different type of science each day of the week. From chemistry to physics, Science in Motion has it all! Kids put on their engineer's hats to build structures. They also learn about chemical reactions that they might encounter in their daily lives. They'll take a walk on the wild side of science in learning about birds and beasts. This Virtual camp is jam packed with at-home activities!
Children overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors, and most importantly, their minds. With a bit of ingenuity, they create catapults and forts, construct working light sticks, and much more, all with materials provided by Mad Science that can be delivered right to your home!
NASA: Academy of Future Space Explorers
Set your future space explorers on a trajectory from our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system! This hands-on program brings them closer to the stars, planets, comets, and more. They learn about living in space, getting away from gravity, looking for space phenomena, and they participate in a rocket launch!
Secret Agent Lab
This program features fun-filled, hands-on, secret agent-themed science activities that allow kids to play detective, explore forensic science, sharpen their surveillance skills, and crack encrypted messages. Kids become super sleuths!
Dinosaurs & Ancient Worlds
Dig up dinosaurs and the ancient past! Kids learn all about archaeology and paleontology! They also study bone fragments, pottery shards, amber deposits, and fossils. Each class includes an at-home project, like a fossil reproduction or amber time capsule!
From the earliest flying machines to the first rocket flights, this hands-on program for children (ages 7-12) will allow them to build many different flying devices, see how Newton's laws of motion help explain how things move and how rockets fly, and show them how amazing our Milky Way is.
Children explore the inside of the body and learn about the organ systems and the cells that it's composed of. They discover cool chemical reactions, and how to solve a crime, in this hands-on summer science adventure!
