STEM Camps

Robotics and Electric Circuit Inventions

Come join us in building exciting projects such as building a Clawbot, Mechanical Catapult, burglar alarms, doorbells, and much more! All parts are mounted on plastic modules and snap together with ease. Participants will also learn how to color code an Ozobot robot and create a maze for the Ozobot to travel through by reading code. This engaging program makes learning electronics easy and fun with Snap Circuits and Ozobots.

Chemistry Camp

Explore a different side of STEM with this new program. As junior chemists, students will study the substances that make up matter—everything that takes up space in the universe. They also study the changes that take place when substances are combined. These changes are called chemical reactions.  Participants who join will have the chance to see how the properties of substances can make for exciting projects; some projects might include slime, foam dough, and lava lamps.

  • Ages: 8 - 12
