Camp Descriptions

Design & Demolish

Build a bridge and watch it break.

Construct a tower and watch it topple! Investigate the art and science behind constructing buildings and wonders of the modern world, then test your structures to see how much stress and strain they can handle. It’s controlled destruction!

Gears & Gadgets


Gears that spin, gadgets that twirl, don’t machines make a wonderful world? Become an engineer, maker and tinkerer by using simple machines to design and develop unique inventions. Collaborate with and challenge your classmates to manipulate and build marvelous mechanisms.

Bugs!

They creep, crawl and fly, but are all bugs pests?

Join us as we explore all the delicate critters we call bugs! Examine creepy crawlers, spindly spiders and beautiful butterflies. Once we dig in, you’ll be buzzing about bugs!

I Can Dig It!

Dig deeper as we look at the science of what’s under our feet.

The Earth holds many hidden wonders: fossils, worms, roots and caves. What’s living below the surface and how does soil help us grow our food? Uncover hidden minerals, prehistoric artifacts and bugs with the help of our underground experts.

Icky Sticky Science


Investigate physical, chemical and phase changes that pop, ooze and change colors. From making slime to uncovering the strange behaviors of non-Newtonian fluids, you’ll find science can be fun and messy!

Jr. Astronaut Academy


Get ready to blast off as we learn what it takes to be an astronaut to live and work in space. Build rockets, explore the planets, learn about the stars that twinkle above and make a visit to the Science Center’s James S. McDonnell Planetarium!

A Spoonful of Science


From sugar crystals to chemical reactions, discover how tasty science can be! Explore the science that goes on in your kitchen. Experience the chemistry of cooking, make your own butter and enjoy ice cream that freezes in seconds.

RAWWR! Dinosaur


Become a junior paleontologist as we uncover the mysteries of these amazing prehistoric creatures. Dig for fossils with scientists and learn how to identify different types of fossils. Discover how dinosaurs ruled the Earth millions of years ago.
