School’s Out Science Camps

When schools are closed, camp is in session at Da Vinci Science Center!  Students in grades K-5 can join us in-person for a full day of hands-on science fun. We will explore a different topic each day so you can join us every day for a new experience. 

You and your child’s health and safety is always our first priority. In-Person Science Clubs at Da Vinci Science Center have extensive health and safety procedures and staff training in place every year. In light of COVID-19, the Da Vinci Science Center team has updated these procedures extensively, informed by current recommendations from local, state, and federal health officials, agencies and authorities, including CDC guidelines.

Eco Exploration

In-Person Camp

The rainforest is home to millions of different amazing plants and animals, but they need our help!  Campers will explore the science of sustainability and how taking steps to be more eco-friendly can have big impacts on protecting the planet’s rainforests.  Become environmental engineers by exploring alternative energies and studying the effect of greenhouse gasses using dry ice.  Campers take a VIP tour through the Under the Canopy exhibit to learn more about the world’s rainforests and how important it is to work towards a more sustainable future.

In-Person Camp

Water is wonderful and essential to a healthy planet…just like the rainforest! Campers will uncover the unusual properties of water, an everyday substance that is super special.  Water is more than just all wet.  We’ll explore the scientific properties of water, practice some water tricks, and learn about water’s place in the world.  Join us for a VIP tour of the Under the Canopy exhibit where campers can explore the plants and animals of the rainforest that rely so heavily on water.
