Fueling imaginations! Camp activities explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation.

What’s on tap for camp this summer:
This summer, children will work together to transform the terrain and ecosystem of a distant exoplanet. They will also take risks as budding business owners, blast rockets, fire air cannons, fling rubber chickens, and wire circuits to create their own Spy Gadget Alarm Boxes! Local, certified educators lead this week of hands-on activities that fuel children’s confidence in their natural ability to dream and create.
