Summer Science Camp: Junior Engineers Lab!
with Mad Science of Maine
Put on your hard hat for this exciting week of Engineering Science. We’ll get wacky with aerodynamics, crazy with circuitry, radical with rockets, innovative with inventions, and mad with machines! In this thought provoking week, we will span the fields of Chemical, Aerospace, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering. We start out the week exploring structures and learning about the role that the movement of air plays on simple flying devices. Children will spend a day learning the fundamentals of rocketry where they will build their own Aerospace rocket to take home. Children will use their construction skills by assembling and controlling fun machines like pulleys, levers, and catapults, and even robots! They finish out the week by experimenting with chemical engineering and inventing potential work-saving inventions of their own. Who knows, your child may be the next Edison! Please note: Camp is for ages 6-12 y/o.

Summer Art Camp: Art Around the World!
with Jennifer Linskey
A loose theme of "Art Around the World" will be incorporated into this weeklong art camp. Not every project will be structured this way, but we’ll touch on the art of Egypt, Greece, Australia, England, Japan, China, and the U.S. It will still be a deep dive into art, but several of the projects will provide an opportunity to look at the incredible artwork of these cultures for inspiration. So when it makes sense, we will. During the week we’ll work from observation, imagination, and consider how dreams might come into our art pieces. No worries if you haven't had art for awhile, come join us for some art making fun! ***Ages 11-14.
