Description

Take a trip into the galaxy! Campers will learn about the history of space travel and how some space vehicles work. This camp will introduce children to and show them how amazing our Milky Way is. (Ages 7 – 11)

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

The Milky Way – What is the Milky Way and how do we know what’s up there? Children will explore the celestial sphere, learn about celestial navigation, and jump into the history of space travel. Construct a Mad Science model rocket to keep!

Galaxy Quest - Make your own sundial as you discover what the universe has to do with telling time. Campers also build a galactic mobile while discovering the wonders of our solar system. They will finish construction on their Mad Science rocket.

Astronaut Training - Navigate the skies when building your own sextant. Next, take a waltz with the planets!

Rockin’ Rocketry - Build a model Saturn to take home. Children will master the concept of rocket staging by operating their own staging exercises. Discover the universe as you build your own planisphere to take home with you, and start work on a fun flying fizzler.

Rocketry in Space - Campers continue to explore the amazing Milky Way. They will build their own blast off racer, finish their flying fizzler, and complete this awesome week with a real Mad Science rocket launch!


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!
