Morning Classes

  • Christmas Chemistry II (Grades 3-5) - All New Chemistry Activities Designed with Christmas in Mind!

So, let’s all put on our safety glasses, lab aprons and rubber gloves and […]
  • Kerbal Space Program (Grades 5 and up) - Just about everyone has heard of Minecraft, but there is another computer game phenomenon that is just as much fun and much more educational.

  • Santa’s Workshop I (Grades 1-3) - Students will use tools, creativity and imagination while designing and building a custom made Christmas gift.

  • Don’t Try This At Home (Grades 5 and up) - The name says it all. It’s the one phrase that strikes terror in the hearts of moms everywhere. It’s also the one phrase that almost guarantees that kids will try to do something unwise in the basement or garage. But fear not, the purpose of this camp is to help youngsters vent the natural desire […]

  • Rube Goldberg Machines (Grades 3-5) - We’ve all seen them, but not everyone knows them by name. Rube Goldberg machines are contraptions made of house- hold items, junk and just about anything that can be connected together in a convoluted arrangement that can be set off to produce a chain reaction of motion that typically ends in some sort of grand […]
