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.

Scholarships are available for School’s Out Science Camps through our Linny Fowler STEAM Scholarship Fund.

Under the Sea
April 14, 2022

Join us for a day of undersea exploration as we celebrate the return of marine tank creatures to the Da Vinci Science Center! Take a deep dive with us, and discover what lies below the water’s surface as we investigate fascinating facts about our fish friends and the ocean environments they inhabit. Together, we’ll seek answers to questions about ocean life and ways we can protect it.

Eggcellent Engineers
April 15, 2022

Can you safely protect an egg from a 2-story drop? What about a collision? On this special day of camp, we’ll use the engineering design process to create solutions to egg-inspired problems. As we design and invent, we’ll think about the wider world of possibilities for our ideas, test prototypes, and see how many eggs we can protect from impact forces. We’ll think like engineers on this fun-filled day of unusual, and possibly messy, exploration!

Going Green
April 18, 2022

Explore the world of STEAM and sustainability on this day of environmental science and engineering. We’ll explore alternative energy and green architecture and consider the environmental impact of rising greenhouse gasses. Study plants and soil to see how we can best help plant-life thrive. Discover how small, eco-friendly changes in our behavior can help us protect the planet in big and impactful ways. Are you up for the challenge?
