Week 1: ZAP! Electricity... (3/4/5 Day Option) - June 26 - 30                                                                        Super charged electrons, levitating stars and dancing ghosts! We'll explore the hair-raising properties of electrical energy. Register for 3, 4 or 5 days and kick off your summer with a ZAP!

Week 2: Toy Lab! (3/4/5 Day Option) - July 3 - 7
Step into the Tiny Scientist Toy Lab for some serious fun! We'll explore the gravity-defying elasticity of a bouncy paddle ball, learn about simple circuits as we make our own version of the HEX bug, zoom through roller coaster physics while we craft our own marble run and more! Learn about the amazing science behind some of your favorite toys and then make your own. Come play at the Tiny Scientist where fun is work and work is FUN!

Week 3: The Science of Art - July 10 - 14
If you are a scientist with an artistic streak, then this mini camp is for you! We'll make super cool paint sets by measuring and mixing natural ingredients, create Lego chalk, learn about how the human eye perceives color as we take a trip through the rainbow and more!

Week 4: Planetarium Imaginarium - July 17 - 21                                                                                        Scientists blast off on a universal excursion in this amazing camp. We will study the sun and solar energy by flying huge solar tubes outside. We will make models of the earth, build machines that harness solar energy and take them out for a race, make planet mobiles and solar photos, design and build working rockets, dance around to songs about the sun, make moon dust, mock craters and more!

Week 5: Journey to the Center of the Earth - July 24 - 28                                                                                Put on your hard hats because this journey is going to be a messy exploration into the wonderful world of archaeology and geology! Join the Tiny Scientist team on an epic adventure of a lifetime to the center of our planet. We will don headlamps and participate in a mini dig-in-the-dark, create vicious volcanoes that destroy everything in their paths and making fantastic fossils to take home!  

Week 6: Build, Steer, Engineer! - July 31 - August 4                                                                                            In this class scientists explore the fundamental principles of engineering and mechanics. Scientists will work together to construct marble roller coasters and explore pressure during hovercraft day. Take a trip back in time to visit the Wright brothers, craft balloon powered race cars and draft designs for an egg drop to test out during our construction challenge!

Week 7: The Science of Magic - August 7 - 11                                                                                               COME ONE, COME ALL..to a full week of jaw-dropping experimentation during the Science of Magic! Scientists will learn how to fool family and friends as we investigate the chemistry, biology and physics behind super cool magic tricks. We will investigate solids and liquids and put out a match without touching it. Explore the wonders of inertia while we learn the secret behind the magic tablecloth trick. We’ll put a “hole” in our hand during an optical illusion class, and use static electricity to make things levitate. Come join us at The Tiny Scientist this Spring to learn about the magical world of science!

Week 8: Gross...but GREAT! - August 14 - 18
Why is mold magical? Why are farts fascinating? Zombie brains, bones that bend and fizzy soda that makes you burp like a champ are just a few of the fantastic, funky experiments we'll make in this mini camp. We'll explore the benefits of boogers, make gummy bugs you can eat and learn about the science of stink! Come laugh your head off in this gross, but great, mini camp. 

Week 9: Kooky Kitchen... Foodie Science - August 21 - 25     ---THIS SESSION IS FULL                     Join us on a taste-tastic adventure in our exciting new summer session: The Kooky Kitchen. We'll dive deep into the world of culinary chemistry as we make beautiful edible stained glass, have a fresh pasta party, have fabulous fun with foam, use the power of bacteria to make the perfect pickle and more. Learn about how your brain helps you tell the difference between "Yuk" and "Yum", and what happens to food as it takes the long trip through your body.  Come join us for this delicious journey through the world of food and chemistry!

Week 10: Toy Lab - August 28 - September 1    ----    THIS SESSION IS FULL
