Mad Machines and Jr. Engineers

Whether your child loves to build things or destroy them, this week of camp includes lots of both! The junior Mad Science engineers will design and build bridges and “skyscrapers” using simple tools and their imaginations. Kids will even construct a geodesic dome big enough for all the campers to sit inside! Then the machine madness starts… Children will discover how many different machines, simple & complex, we use in our daily lives. Campers will have fun building their own catapults to take home and will work with simple machines such as pulleys, wedges, screws & levers. After the simple machines, we move on to fun with the Mad Science robots! We’ll play robot soccer, test line-tracking robots, and help our team direct our sound activated robots around an obstacle course, all the while learning the science of robotics!

NASA – STEM Explorers

Mad Science has teamed up with NASA in a quest for Space Exploration and Innovation!
We will take a voyage of discovery to the atmosphere & beyond as we explore planets, moons, & space phenomena! Think and act like NASA innovators as we collaborate and design a mission patch, train like astronauts, and solve real-world engineering problems. Investigate unique flying machines and build copters, boomerangs & mini hovercrafts. We’ll even build our own rockets and blast them into the air!
Mad Science is the ONLY organization licensed by NASA!

NASA Journey to Outer Space

Mad Science has teamed up with NASA in a quest for exploration! We’ll take a voyage of discovery into the atmosphere and beyond as we explore planets, moons, and other space phenomena in our solar system. Things will heat up as we examine the sun and other stars and discover the difficulties of space travel! Kids will get a firsthand experience of the challenges of living in space as they try assemble a satellite while training to be an astronaut. Kids will love to build their own Mad Science rocket, and participate in a real “NASA” style rocket launch. Campers will have lots of projects to make and many cool NASA take homes, including a gravity assisted launcher, a Shuttle Copter, and more! Mad Science is the ONLY organization licensed by NASA to use these activities for Summer Camps. This Camp is Out of this World!

Eureka - Flight to the Future

Calling all innovators! Bring your imagination and let it SOAR as you create a squadron of paper airplanes the Wright brothers would be proud of! Explore technological advances in flight: hot air balloons, flying machines, and spacecraft. Launch a variety of stomp rockets, and even take one home! Learn about lasers, microgravity, and space stations. Become inspired by Verne and Asimov and build submarines, brainstorm the telecommunications and transportation of the future. This camp culminates with campers building their own sci-fi inspired light sabers that they can take home, along with their dreams. The future is now!
