Example activities from previous years:

  • Toothpick tower construction: Students learn about forces through a few games and demonstrations. They then test out how to build a strong and stable structure using only toothpicks and marshmallows.
  • Coding: Students learn the basics of computer science while making their own stories and games. Learn more about Scratch here: https://scratch.mit.edu/
  • Acid-base chemistry: Students put on their lab coats & goggles, mix different solutions, and learn about the principles of chemical reactions

Camp activities are different each year. Our team of Instructors plan the curriculum so they can tailor each week to fit the camp participants.
