Our campers will embrace science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to build the skills that will serve as their tool set for the future. In our camps, we work together to ignite curiosity and get excited about STEM in our everyday lives. With fun themes, new curriculum each summer and sessions for all interests, there is something for everyone. Give your child a camp experience that will unlock their potential.
Our STEM Virtual Camps are half day adventures that keep children engaged, learning and having fun! Expert STEM Educators will facilitate hands-on activities, self-directed learning, STEM explorations and group discussions for children in rising grades 2-6! Each half day of virtual camp will include:
1 hour Zoom Meeting with lesson/activity, animal encounters or science demonstrations
1 hour Daily Challenge time & Open Zoom for assistance if needed
1.5 hour 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. Camp registration comes with a kit full of materials to complete fun and hands-on STEM challenges, from engineering to making slime!
Member discounts applied at checkout.
Each day of virtual camp will consist of three hours of a structured Zoom session with fun science games, hands-on activities and an exciting science demonstration, animal encounter, or behind-the-scenes at the Lab experience led by our expert STEM educators.
Campers will receive a kit full of supplies for hands-on fun! Each kit will have all the materials necessary for the camp activities, along with additional fun activities and games to try on your own.
Kits will be available for contactless pick up Friday, December 18 from 4pm to 6pm and Saturday, December 19 from 10am to 12pm. If you are joining us from out of town, we will provide a list of easy to locate ingredients that can be purchased online or at your local stores.
Some of our team members are trapped inside the Lab and you can help them escape! Put your critical thinking and team building skills to use following clues, solving puzzles and cracking codes.
Calling all mad scientists! If you like creating your own experiments that bubble, hiss and possibly explode, this camp is for you!
Learn and use investigative skills to solve a mystery by examining trace evidence, studying suspects and more!
Do you love space? This journey includes exploring the Solar System and technology used to explore the planets to the moon and stars.
Did you know cooking is science? Explore the science of mixing ingredients together to create fun reactions and tasty treats!
Meet some of our amazing animal ambassadors and learn all about them, their habitat and how they adapt to their environment.
Fun is not cancelled this summer! Our virtual camps connect your kids with our STEM Educators and other students online to develop community, participate in group learning, and grow teamwork all the while maintaining physical distance and safety.
Our camps are specifically designed for children in rising grades 2-6!
All camps are held in secured zoom rooms with two or more STEM Educators.
STEM kits included for hands-on activities (including slime), group discussion & daily challenges, STEM kits provided!
Themes include Science Magic, Under the Sea, Spy Camp, Robotics, and more!
Summer registration opens on May 29!
My curious, inventive child really enjoyed the virtual camp. The knowledge was right on-target for his age, the staff was phenomenal with the kids, and the hands-on projects encouraged him to try out new things. He had a great time, and I was highly impressed every time I listened in.
"We are so impressed and pleased with the Virtual Camps offered by the Children's Science Center. Our 9-year-old daughter attend three weeks of sessions and loved them all. The live video gatherings are extremely well organized and run by the skilled and upbeat team. The CSC has a strong grasp of how to use virtual technology for educational programming, while keeping the kids highly engaged. I was really impressed how quickly they rolled out top notch virtual programming when in-person gatherings shut down. Honestly, this is exactly the pick-me-up experience were looking for during these difficult times and we are grateful to the CSC for meeting the needs of our 3rd grader."
