Participate in camp live from home!  Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It’s everything that flies! (Superheroes Excluded)…
From the earliest flying machines to the first rocket flights, this hands-on program focuses on aerodynamics and the world above us! Campers build many different flying devices and put them to the test! Traveling further up, campers investigate the wonders of our very own Milky Way. They join their fellow “astronauts” in building their own Mad Science rocket.

For this virtual camp, we'll pack up a bag for you of science activities to do at home! Your Mad Scientist will lead campers in demonstrations and activities and set them off on their discovery with science activities. Your Mad Scientist will be online the whole time to guide them and answer questions as the conduct their activities some independently and some as a group. Conducted via Zoom or similar. Children entering K and 1st may need assistance from a grown-up at home.

Note: Descriptions in Additional Information are based on in-person full-day programs. Specific "Camp at Home" activities may vary.

It's an Up Thing Kids will explore the role that wind and the movement of air plays on simple flying devices such as kites, hot air balloons and parachutes. Children will experiment with solar bags, parachutes and build their own kites during this hands-on look at flight.
Milky Way What is the Milky Way? Children will explore the celestial sphere, learn about celestial navigation and build their own sextant, sundial, planisphere and even a refracting telescope while discovering the wonders of the Milky Way.
Newton's Loco-Motion Sir Isaac Newton was very curious about how things move. Discover Newton’s Laws of Motion in this hands-on program all about motion. Children will experiment to learn how inertia works and how gravity is a physical force that keeps things on the ground.
Rockin' Rockets Discover the stages of rocket flight and how Newton’s third law applies to a rocket traveling to space. The children will build their own Mad Science Skyblazer rockets, experiment with water rockets and stomp rockets during this fun filled day.
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, and balloon helicopter building, children will understand what makes things fly.
