Get ready for a summer of astounding science! In this program, we’ll put the heat and sunshine to good use as make awesome sun prints, build pinhole cameras, create color-changing bracelets and design our own sunglasses So, start your summer vacation by training the brain at Summertime Scientists.
Kids love to create, build, and innovate. This is the perfect Summer Camp for kids that love science, technology, and engineering. Maker Camp will provide them with the opportunity to develop their skills, learn new things, and share interests with others. Maker Camp gives kids the chance to design a new world of creativity that merges the traditional and technological in their own unique and independent way.
We’re Maker Camp EXPERTS! In fact, Kaleidoscope owner and director, Sandy Roberts, recently published The Big Book of Maker Camp Projects for McGraw-Hill.
