This camp puts children on a “deserted island” on which they must work together to devise a means for collecting food and water, build shelters, bridges, and learn about the science behind survival fun! The children eventually design a means to escape the island and come home. (Ages 6 – 11)

These are a sample of some of the activities that take place in the in-person version of this camp.

Shipwrecked – Imagine finding yourself on a deserted island with only a few supplies. What better way to inspire your own creations? Add into the day a tsunami and see how resourceful you can be using Ben Franklin’s inventions as inspiration.

Rock Paper Scissors – Investigate the awesome innovations created before modern science had really begun. Learn about Leonardo da Vinci and discover how his ideas predicted future inventions that can help us on the island. Build tools to both enjoy and to help with escape, including a harmonica, mystery key, and dragonfly helicopter! Build a bridge to help explore the island and create a means of protection for your new camp!

Forts and Flingers – Explore catapults, trebuchets, and more of his amazing inventions during this action packed camp day. Protect camp by designing different flying and flinging devices, including your own flying dragon! Practice your skills of observation.

Race to Space – Why settle for just a message in a bottle? Campers take flight on this exciting day! From hot air balloons to rockets, the adventure starts on the ground and travels into space. Step into space by launching self-built rockets and loading a payload capsule puzzle.

Escape from Shipwreck Island – Witness a volcano erupt! Build another bridge so you can scout the island for the best place to take off. Campers work on a sail boat as they explore ideas for escaping the island to safety!

Access these virtual field trips via ZOOM! Mad Science will provide a supply bag available for curbside pickup from our office the week before camp begins. Delivery available for an additional charge.
These LIVE programs will give campers an opportunity to interact with other students, too explore scientific concepts with live scientists, and to build amazing projects to keep!
