Camp Theme:  Motor Madness & Physics Fun
Explore electricity and magnetism as we work with different types of motors and design science toys. Build a simple motor that creates motion, and another that spins at high speed. Take a mini motor and turn it into a racer bot. Construct an elastic powered motor as well. Then we will enjoy science fun with other activities like rubber band shooters, mini rockets, make a battery and daily design studio with lots of materials to create with.

Additional Information:
Founder, Mark Bradski, holds a credential in elementary education and is an expert in hands-on science. His goal for students is to instill a love of learning and the ability to solve problems with a scientific approach.  
Each day will be filled with science fun! We will see amazing demonstrations, then build a project to take home and enjoy. There will be many other projects to construct, and every day there will be a time dedicated to a Make It Studio where abundant materials will be available to design, then bring your ideas to life!
