Science Explorers Greatest Hits

Science Explorers has compiled our favorite camp experiments into a week-long science extravaganza!  In our ½ day camp you’ll dissect a shark, make groovy lava lamp test tubes, design a course for your own robot, mix up chemical reactions, erupt a volcano, and make chalkboard and fluffy slime!  Stay for the full day (or come for just the afternoon) and you’ll build a solar oven and bake s’mores, create your own motorized invention, experiment in our acid and base lab, go digging for dinosaurs and compete in a bristle-bot race.
