Physics of Fun
April 6, 2023

Discover the physics of fun! You’ll learn all about Newton’s Three Laws of Motion, experiment with rollercoaster design, work in teams to create carnival games, and so much more. Come see just how much fun you can engineer with us! 

Fabulous Forces
April 7, 2023

What would come of a world without friction? Come see how animals and plants adapt to and use friction every day and how those adaptations inspire engineers and scientists. Experiment with interlocking structures, look to the natural world for bioinspiration, and become a friction expert as you investigate this important force of nature. 

Splash, Fizz, Pop!
April 10, 2023

The wonderful world of water has so many possibilities.  We drink it, swim in it, and bathe with it.  Join us as we investigate some of the other really cool things that water can do. From mixing solutions to making bubbles, this day of camp will make you say H-2-WOAH!
