Preschool STEM Camp (Ages 3-5)

Week 2, 3 and 4: Junior Game Maker!

Game on! With the development of logic skills serving as the foundation for fun, budding programmers learn the basics of computer science while creating digitally interactive puzzles and exciting video games. From designing custom characters to sequencing motion blocks, kids “crack the code” using software such as ScratchJr and Tynker. With off-line projects like mini skee-ball and labyrinth, campers delve into a world filled with strategy, logic, and luck!

Week 5, 6 and 7: Junior Astronaut

Three, two, one…blast off! It’s time to fall in line for astronaut training! Campers dive in by earning their helmets and jet packs as they discover what it takes to make it in outer space. Next up: Escape Earth’s gravity to explore the Sun, the Moon, and many of the solar system’s interesting features. From launching Alka-Seltzer rockets to creating satellite spinners, budding space explorers learn the ropes as they prepare to take off to infinity and beyond!

Week 8, 9 and 10: Junior Engineer

Calling all inventors, builders, designers and dreamers! From wing designs to clothespin cars, curious camper minds discover what it takes to be an engineer. Throughout the week we explore engineering disciplines ranging from aerospace to electrical, with little hands working on innovative projects that engage and amaze. Curious kids explore how engineers problem solve to address environmental crises, use nature to inspire inventions, and complete complex circuits to light up the night sky.

Elementary STEM Camp (Ages 5-10)

Weeks 2, 3 and 4: Coding and Digital Design

Join us at the crossroads of coding and digital design! In this camp kids explore how technology has revolutionized video production, website design, 3D modeling and more. Our young, inspired thinkers use software to create their own logos, “photoshop” pictures to produce exciting visual effects, and generate three dimensional virtual representations of their unique product ideas! Balancing design with coding, campers use MIT’s Scratch to increase their understanding of logic and programming.

Weeks 5, 6 and 7: Wacky World of Aircraft

It’s time for takeoff! The adventure begins with a steep climb to cruising altitude as our aspiring pilots learn the fundamentals of unpowered, subsonic, and supersonic flight. Campers earn their wings building their own aircraft ranging from paper airplanes to balsa models. The week would not be complete without a study of VTOL (Vertical Take-Off & Landing vehicles) and remotely operated aircraft. Our pilots wrap up the voyage by assembling their own rubberband powered helicopters and experimenting with hand sensing drones!

Weeks 8, 9 and 10: Kids Crime Lab

Join the CSI team as we investigate the mysteries of the living world through forensic biology. Designed as a suspense-building “whodunit” experience, Kids Crime Lab guides campers through the discovery of clues and the tackling of challenges tied to topics such as cellular structure and DNA. From bacterium to blood type, kids learn how to interpret data and draw conclusions necessary to crack the case. Secret message glasses, microscopes, and DIY lab kits are just a few of the CSI tools that campers create and take home for further crime scene investigations!
