Camps for Ages 6-10+

For over 10 years Mad Science has been the STEM summer camp destination for young scientists across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.   This year we are offering 14 exciting themes, including an Advanced Robotics Camp for young scientists (ages 10-12)!

Your camper is immersed in fun, hands-on learning each camp day, including exciting projects and activities.  There is a make-and-take-home project every day (and more than one on some days!).  Topics like Robotics, Rocketry, Forensics and space excites your child's mind and develops a passion for curiosity, knowledge and imaginative learning.

Please call us at (972) 241-0475 to learn more.

 
Below are the half-day summer camp themes offered in 2015:

Bubbles...Smoke...Explosions!

Have fun with chemistry in this exciting summer camp! Make a magical crystal garden and synthesize your own slime. Watch as smoke bellows from the NASA-styled rocket you build in class! Learn about our solar system and make a comet using everyday items! Have a “shocking” good time with a Van de Graff generator and experience lightning first-hand! All of this and more!

Forensics Lab a la CSI

Campers take part in CSI style forensics in this hands-on look at crime scenes. Identify and collect evidence from fingerprints to tracks to trash! Recreate the scene of a crime using clues and detailed observations. Campers will use science to connect the dots and help sniff out the suspects in this hands-on investigation into the science of sleuthing.

Eureka!

While Thomas Edison said "invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration", this camp is 100% fun! Campers will overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors and the most important of all—their MIND. With a little bit of ingenuity, campers will create catapults and forts, construct working light sticks to take home, and assemble a set of circuits with batteries and light bulbs.

Rockin' Rockets

Mad Science invites you to launch your knowledge of rockets in our exciting Camp. This is your chance to be a rocket scientist! Explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build and launch your own rocket. Watch an amazing rocket launch as it soars to the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's everything from the earliest flying machines to the first rocket flights!

Secret Agent Lab

Learn to spy- oh my! James Bond? MacGyver? Austin Powers??? Do you think you have what it takes to discover "who done it"? If so, this camp is for you! Discover the secret communications and detective crime science to the inner workings of our cells and cool chemistry. Each day we sleuth out the answer to many of life's mysteries!

Inventions Galore

Creative contraption warning! This is a camp designed by the Inventor- YOU! Awaken the inventor and scientist within you during this camp. Each day you'll be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using the power of your mind. Investigate the awesome inventions created before modern science had really begun. Join the adventure to infinity and beyond on this fantastic day where science fiction meets science fact!

Moving with Science

Discover how science moves the world around you! This camp covers multiple areas of science, from biology to engineering to chemistry. Campers build bridges and other structures one day and then build a camera the next. They dissect owl pellets, grow crystal gardens, and so much more! Each day of camp includes activities where campers create amazing things to take home with them.

Robot Mania 2014

Learn all about the use of robotics in our world today and how technology will continue to affect our future! Campers will check out sound sensing robots, line tracking robots, amphibious robots, and even robots that play soccer! They will delve into the science of circuits and sensors. Over the course of the camp, they will build their very own working robot to take home!

Rocket Ride to Space

Blast-off your knowledge of aerodynamics and flight! This camp is an intense, exciting study on rockets. Campers build their very own rockets and planes, They experiment with different kinds of propulsion systems. And they definitely launch and recover rockets! Each day of camp includes activities where campers create amazing things to take home with them.

STEM Genius Engineering & Math

This summer dig into STEM to be even smarter when you return to school in the Fall. You will love discovering more about Engineering (applying knowledge to design solutions) and Math (the study of patterns and relationships). Have fun and learn at the same time! Team up with friends to strengthen your understanding of energy sources, structures, ocean mechanics, and much more through hands-on experiments!

Advanced Robotics: Featuring Lego Mindstorms

Children learn about the history of robotics, from literature to engineering advancements. They form robotics teams to brainstorm and then design specialized robots. They will also learn about the mechanical aspects of robots, with gears, gear ratios, torque, hydraulics, and pneumatics. Hands-on activities include building dear sets and operating a robotic arm to retrieve their snack! Robot-building time provides children the opportunity to examine their robots with a circuit-savvy eye. (Ages 10-12 yrs)

Mad Science ALL STARS!

You have been selected to participate on the Mad Science All-Star team! You and your teammates will build super structures, create a volcanic eruption, and examine rocks formed from volcanic magma. Soar high above as you build a kite and glider and experiment with lift, aerodynamics, and air pressure. Discover the secret behind the stars and make your own star chart!

Earth the Amazing Planet

Spend some time learning about how science is everywhere around us from deep in the earth to high in the sky! We'll even share some tips on how to protect our awesome planet by making recycled paper and experimenting with pollution solutions. The focus on nature continues as we investigate how animals use their sense of smell to detect food and even danger and then make a cast of an actual animal footprint to take home. At the end of camp, we will take it to the sky for a high flying space spectacular!

STEM Genius- Science and Technology

This summer dig into STEM to be even smarter when you return to school in the Fall. You will love discovering more about Science (understanding nature) and Technology (modifying the world to improve human comfort). Have fun and learn at the same time! Team up with friends to strengthen your understanding of energy sources, structures, ocean mechanics, and much more through hands-on experiments
