Rethinking the Future
What will the future hold?
This camp will allow you to imagine and then to design and build things that you would love to see in the future. Whether we are making DIY robots out of recycled materials or trying to figure out how to use different forms of alternative energy to accomplish simple tasks. This camp will help expand your imagination and then see if we can move your ideas toward reality.

Living Responsibly in Our World
One World, One Earth
Spend a week interacting with the environment and learning how to be a responsible citizen. You will be learning about the living and non-living components of the environment and how they work together. You will be building water filters, growing native plants, learning about rain gardens and native species, and trying different composting methods. Learn how to repurpose and reuse materials by creating amazing works of art.

The Living World/ Land and Sea
This camp week is all about life!
Build a foldable Microscope and observe life from tiny, microscopic organisms to human hair and fingerprints. Collect and compare DNA from different organisms and observe inheritance patterns. Experiment with photosynthesis to try to increase oxygen production from plants. This week won’t just involve observing living things we will try to figure out how they work.
"Our daughter, age 7, participated in a recent STEM exercise via group ZOOM call. We really like how the teacher, challenged the children to think about the problem and alternative solutions. Amazingly well done, start to finish. If you are looking to add to your child's experience in science, this is it."
"My child is enjoying the program very much. For her it is something interesting to look forward aside her school work, in which she is losing interest now."
"So you definitely did something right in instilling a confidence and a desire for inquiry in them that I haven’t seen before. The experience definitely exposed them to something more than they would have had in their district and yes I teach science but what you did surpassed the standards. There is a silver lining in this storm of remote learning."
