Camp STEAM Age 9-12 & 13-16

Our Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math STEAM Camp engages campers in critical thinking workshops that focus on fundamental skills they need to improve their ability to think critically. Our instruction focuses on research-based approaches to defining and clarifying a problem, judging information related to a problem, and solving problems & drawing conclusions. Through activities focused on helping campers discover answers, they begin to develop a point of view that improves their academic and social perspectives of the world. We design our STEAM Camp to encourage the discovery of new ideas and meanings using content-based assignments. Through the investigation and modeling of important critical thinking strategies, campers become more proficient in reading, writing, listening, speaking, and presenting; all necessary skills to be successful in their academic disciplines. Our STEAM Camp goal is to move campers from dependent learners to independent, self-motivated, life-long learners. Throughout our skills based & text-based instruction, campers gain a sense of empowerment and control over their learning.

Campers get a firsthand experience of the challenges of living in space as they try to assemble a satellite while training to be an astronaut. They build their own Mad Science rocket and participate in a real NASA style rocket launch. Campers have many projects to make and many cool NASA take homes, including a gravity assisted launcher, a Shuttle Copter, and more! Mad Science is the ONLY organization licensed by NASA to use these activities for Summer Camps. Our Camp is Out of this World!
