Mad Science Camp

Crazy Chemworks - Ages 6-12

Shake up a flask of fun in the lab as a junior chemist. These five half days of chemistry are packed solid with cool science, radical reactions and more. Campers will put on some goggles and change liquids to solids and back again. They get to handle laboratory tools, build and break molecules, observe chemical changes and test pH balances. Campers will bring home different science tools so that at the end of the camps, they will have a complete chemistry kit.

When:  June 22-26 from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Where:  Scout House, 6108 Edloe St.

Eureka! - Ages 6-12

Creative contraption warning! This is a camp designed by you, the inventor. Each day you will be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all, your mind. With a little bit of ingenuity you will construct catapults and forts and then lay siege, fabricate a winning egg drop design, construct a dancing robot and assemble a working light saber to take home. While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% fun.
