STEMystery: Moonbase Alpha
Do you like the thrill of a mystery? Team up to solve a crime–a crime that has happened on Moon Base Alpha! All your observation skills will be put to the test as you collect and analyze data. Learn new forensic science skills which will enable your team to solve the crime. Activities include: fingerprint analysis, facial recognition, DNA extraction, impression casting, and GPS tracking. This camp is designed for students in 4th-7th grades.
Students must provide packed lunch.
Camp times: 8:45am-5:00pm M-Th; F: 8:45am-4:00pm

entering K-2nd grades, $275 per week
Have your budding scientist imagine what it would be like to explore Mars on a long term expedition. How would their transport system work? What would their homes be like? What would a Mars city look like? What would they eat? This camp is a full week of hands on exploration of what the future of living on Mars might encompass…all designed for students in K-3rd grades.
3rd-5th grades, $275 for non-overnight or $500 for overnight (4th grade and up)
Be ready for NASA’s return to the moon! Join us as we plan for living and working on the moon. You will work as a team to determine where to build a moon base, design and build a lunar lander model and moon rovers, learn about rockets and space travel, and design and run scientific experiments just like NASA! Activities are hands-on and based on national and state math and science standards. Students will have the opportunity to learn team-building skills as they work together to design, learn to problem solve, and learn basic engineering concepts. All of these activities prepare the campers for their final mission, Lunar Quest!
Laptops: From Build to Program
6th grade and up, $475 for non-overnight or $600 for overnight (both rates includes the cost of the laptop supplies)
Campers will build their very own laptop from the ground up, and through interactive games campers will learn to code, build circuits as well as make hardware that interacts with the game! Campers will then take their laptop home for on-going education.
Non-overnight students must provide packed lunch.
Day only times: 8:45am-5:00pm M-Th; F: 8:45am-4:00pm
