Mad Science Summer Camp
Green glowing liquids, strange objects flying through the air, messages written in secret code, autonomous robots, mystery substances that change from solid to liquid in seconds. Is this another planet? No, it's a Mad Science camp!
Mad Science is a leading science enrichment provider. We deliver unique, hands-on science experiences for children through after-school programs, birthday parties, workshops, special events, and summer camps. Our innovative programs are as entertaining as they are educational!
August 5, 2024 Theme: Dynamic Dinos
Dig deep into archaeology on our thrilling expedition to the Prehistoric past! Young palaeontologists will immerse themselves in the primordial world, witnessing dinosaurs and other ancient creatures swim, crawl, and soar over the Earth. Each day, we will uncover a new era in our Mad Science Big Dig site, combining geology with technology to solve the mysteries of our planet’s history. Your child will learn how to locate, identify, and preserve bones, fossils, and artifacts on the land and sea, using models and making discoveries to bring home. Our archaeologists will use what they’ve learned about different categories of dinosaurs each day to design their own hybrid Super Dino! Each camper will receive a Mad Science Lab Coat, goggles, Mad Science Certification, and specially designed Take Homes to help extend learning at home.
August 12, 2024 Theme: Bigger Better Chemistry Lab
Make sure to wear your safety goggles before stepping into our atomic laboratory! Young chemists will experiment with hands-on, dynamic chemistry reactions that “excite” and “ignite” our world to epic proportions! Campers will team up to design their own colorful indoor fireworks, create instant Glow Worms of all sizes, experiment with giant erupting Elephant Toothpaste, and test out explosive reactions to send rockets flying! Our Polymer Experts will investigate and analyze ingredients to create the Ultimate Slime Recipe. Additionally, each camper will receive a set of Official Mad Science Lab Gear, Mad Science Lab Coat, goggles, Mad Science Certification, and specially designed Take Homes to help extend learning at home.
