NEW classes, new projects, beloved instructors.

Our science, robotics and engineering summer camp is so fun, kids have no idea how much they're learning!

Did your children come last year and love it? Sign them up again since this summer we’ll be offering awesome NEW classes and projects!

Our youngest campers, rising grades K-1, will have their own Lego Building and Engineering classes where they will learn how to create simple-machines.  In our NEW Intro to Video Game Programming class, campers will create their own simple video game programs using Scratch on an iPads. We also have an all-new set of Invention Lab workshops where campers will experiment and tinker to their hearts' content!

For our older campers (Grades 2-6), we have multiple levels of Lego Robotics (from the introductory level to Mindstorms) and Video Game Programming, plus 3-D Printing and Design to campers in grades 4-6.  This summer we’ll be bringing back our Invention Lab with ALL NEW, fantastic projects. In Out of This World Engineering and Electronics, we will be building amazing structures and wiring up our own electronic creations. This year we are also offering our NEW Rasberry Pi class to our 5-6th grade campers.

Campers can sign up for two weeks of camp without repeating projects. Just be sure to pick an A Week and a B Week.  (The classes are the same, but the projects are different!)


Our summer camp instructors are the same team who work for us year-round. Many have taught for us for several years. Many have worked as professional engineers and programmers; a few have PhD's! They all LOVE working with children.


If my child took Week A or Week B or both weeks last year, what can s/he take this year without repeating?

Children who took our either or both weeks of our camp last year can take either or both weeks of our camp this year without repeating projects. For example, kids who took Lego Robotics last year, or in school this year, can move on to more advanced levels of Lego Robotics in camp. Ditto for Video Game Programming and 3-D design.
