Can’t wait for the summer? Neither can we! Join us for a preview of our 2021 Summer Camp topics and experiments. Each day campers will explore just a handful of the amazing experiments and builds that we will dive into all summer long. Book one day at a time, or the entire week!
Our camps will follow all state and local guidelines regarding cleaning, screenings, social distancing and face masks. We will hold classes, as we did Summer 2020, at reduced capacity with curbside check-in and pick-ups to protect our campers and staff.
Members: $75 per day or $275 for the week-long course
Non-members: $85 per day or $325 for the week-long course

|March 12||Egg-Straordinary Physics:
Never has engineering and physics been to egg-citing!
Dive into hands-on builds and team challenges as you prepare to make your eggs go faster, higher, and farther than before.
Campers explore force and motion, velocity and gravity while learning how to design and build as inventors.
Makerspace Spring Break Camp: 5th-8th Grade
Spring Break is a great time to build and polish your MAKER Skills. Each day provides another opportunity to go hands-on with workshop tools and technology. Not only will the students have a great time making, they will also acquire valuable skills to help them become better innovators and makers.
|March 8||Maker Challenges:
Are you ready to improve your Maker skills?
Invent, design and create small, medium and large projects in our MakerSpace workshop!
Learn to use shop tools safely as you create unique take home projects.
|March 9||Advanced Animators:
Do you have a story to tell?
Learn how to storyboard as you work your way from simple flipbook animation, Claymation, stop-motion and 3D computer animation.
Build the world, create the characters and add sound effects for your own animated short films.
|March 10||Tech Gadgets:
Do you love inventing, tinkering and programming?
Learn how to use computer aided design software.
Design, create and print your own creations using our 3D printers.
Take a dive into the world of programming and micro-controllers.

Does electricity spark your interest?
Learn how electronics work, program micro-controllers, design wearable technology, and learn to solder like a professional!
|March 12||Advanced Robotics:
Already love robotics? Take a deeper dive in VEX™ programming with sensors and motors.
Build attachments to complete mini-competitions and get your robot dancing through the courses.
Explore how simple machines work together in complex ways to roll, lift, push, pull and grasp.
All campers get their own WOW stage shows before the museum opens to the public, have time to explore the exhibits, and dive into big builds or messy experiments.
Children remain with Sci-Tech teachers all day who are Red Cross Certified in First Aid/CPR/AED and have years of education experience. We hope that you join us for a day of STEM that they won’t stop talking about!
