Get ready to go on a journey into the outer reaches of our solar system as you join us for Space Out!  This camp will explore the technology we use to explore space – from rovers to rockets – and look beyond to study the sun, moon, stars, and planets!

In Space Out!, campers will: 

• Harness the power of the sun and engineer their own to engineer their own solar oven

• Explore the stars and constellations and create their very own constellation viewer!  

• Engineer their own Mars rover to explore other planets and collect data  

• Meet earth animals up close to learn about alien adaptations  

• Design and launch their very own rocket!

How Do Virtual Camps Work?

Our expert STEM Educators will facilitate hands-on activities, self-directed learning, STEM explorations and group discussions.

Each day of virtual camp will include:  

• 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Zoom Meeting with lesson/activity, animal encounters or science demos.

• 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Daily Challenge time & Open Zoom.

• 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm Zoom Meeting to present daily challenge, follow up activities and lessons.

The daily STEM challenges encourage critical thinking, creative problem solving, and child-led exploration.  These challenges can be completed in under an hour and with limited parental supervision.

The price of a participant includes any number of children who will share a screen.  The kit that comes with the price is enough material for one participant.  You may purchase additional kits for $25.  

Kits will be available for curbside pick up the week before the camp. If you are unable to pick up your kit curbside, please contact us for a list of kit materials.

*video session will be conducted over Zoom and recorded.  If you need to miss a session, the recorded stream can sent via email.
