Daily Labs

Each day, campers and their fellow curious friends will join an expert instructor to learn about energy, motion, biology, and more. Lab material is inspired by our featured guest stars, and encourages campers to get hands-on with experiments and inventions of their own.

Daily labs include experiments with forces, inventions with simple machinery, tests and observations with biology, and completely-safe-but-utterly amazing chemical reactions.

Unplug Projects

So much of science happens away from the computer screen. That’s why your camper will get a set of engaging (and safe) hands-on activities they can do outside and around the house.
