Camps spark curiosity and inspire creative learning through hands-on,
inquiry-led exploration and discovery. Each weeklong camp provides an
innovative, safe and inspiring environment for campers to expand their
problem-solving potential—and have a whole lot of fun. Campers dive deep into
age-appropriate STEAM concepts and develop critical thinking skills in a
supportive and collaborative environment.

about the forces of flight while investigating the way things fling, float, fly
and fall through the air. Prepare for takeoff, aspiring aviators—sky-high
adventures await you.
Join the maker movement! Spend the week weaving through the science and art of
textiles in this hands-on camp for artists, designers and makers. Hone your
creative skills as we master modern fabrication techniques and processes. Join
us as we find out what makes fabrication so fantastic—and so fun!
Illuminating Inventions: Design
and Explore with the Innovators
Embark on an
ambitious journey back in time as you become an apprentice to famous inventors
from the Renaissance! Turn inspired ideas into original inventions as we draw
from the work of Galileo, da Vinci, Michelangelo and many more to discover new
ways to change the world
Tinkering with Color and Light
fly as we make and tinker with cool circuits, bright lights and vibrant colors.
Explore how light is used in science, art, medicine, engineering and beyond.
Illuminate your imagination and ignite your curiosity by creating your very own
magical world of light and color.
Program, Animate and Create
Design it. Develop it. This summer, explore exciting new technologies as you
think outside the box and let your imagination run wild. That’s right—we’re
exploring the creative side of coding! Program, animate and create customized
games, crazy inventions and super cool stories. Check it out!
gentlemen, boys and girls—step right up and join the fun! Become a robotics
ringmaster and build wacky, whimsical carnival contraptions. You’ll combine
technology, playful tactile learning and basic computer programming to create a
truly spectacular show.
