From the earliest flying machines to the first rocket flights, this hands-on program will allow campers to build many different flying devices. Junior test pilots will launch a variety of flying machines including; balloon copters, a hovercraft, paper airplanes, kites, Frisbees, parachutes, rockets and more! You are cleared for takeoff! (Ages 7 - 11)

The “Wright” Stuff – Children will explore the fundamentals of aerodynamics in this hands-on program about how things fly. From the basic principles of flight to building airplanes, children will understand what makes things fly and how different types of aircraft fly. Learn all about the amazing Wright brothers as you build your own rubber band powered plane.

Wings and Things - From hovercraft and balloon copter building, to balloon copters, boomerangs and mini Frisbees, discover that everything that flies doesn’t have wings. Demonstrate your plane building techniques.

Up, Up & Away! – This program will explore the role that wind, heat, and the movement of air plays on simple flying devices. Design, build and fly your own kite using ancient flying machines as your guide. Discover why kites have tails.

Lift and Drag - Come back to earth when we look at the role parachutes play in flight. See a hot air balloon take off and experiment with other flying devices.

Rocket Scientists - Our aspiring rocket scientists master rocket mechanics and are cleared for launch! Campers build and launch Estes model engine powered rockets to explore the physics of flight. Leave camp with your own rocket.

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!
