Description

Take a voyage of discovery into the atmosphere and beyond! Explore planets, moons and other space phenomena in our solar system. Discover the difficulties of space travel, the challenges of living in space and try assembling a satellite while training to be an astronaut. Mad Science is the ONLY organization licensed to use these activities for summer camps and school programs. All material developed by Mad Science and NASA. Ages 7 - 11

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

Astronaut in Training - Discover technology designed for outer space! Steer a laser beam through a laser maze and discover everyday objects that were originally designed for use in space! And that’s just the beginning! Find out how much you would weigh if you lived on Neptune, and how old you would be if you lived on Saturn during this action packed camp day.

Earth and Beyond - Explore the farthest reaches of our solar system and create a lunar eclipse in this “mad” planetary tour! Next, go on a mission to explore the atmosphere on Earth, and beyond! Travel to the end of the rainbow and make a sunset! Mix up various planetary atmospheres, one molecule at a time; discover how stars would look in space, and see what makes stars twinkle!

Solar Launch - This stellar program is your ticket to the stars! Watch star dust burn, and journey through a soapy galaxy as you investigate the life cycle of stars! Then, it’s your chance to become a rocket scientist! Investigate the four forces of flight, and explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build your own Skyblazer II Rocket™ that you can take home!

Space Voyage - Learn what it takes to be a true globetrotter! Race a balloon rocket as you learn about thrust. See the principles of propulsion at work in a real rocket launch, and build your very own Shuttle Copter™ to fly to the skies!

Eye on the Sky – Probe the mysteries of meteors and bounce around satellite light in this phenomenal program on space phenomena! Learn how to tell the difference between stars, planets and satellites in the night sky. See comets up close as one is formed before your eyes!

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!
