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.

Da Vinci, M.D.
Thursday, April 1

In-Person Camp

Begin your medical training at Da Vinci Science Center in this one-day crash course in healthcare. Discover the nearly endless number of jobs needed to keep humans healthy and happy. We’ll spend the day exploring some of the body’s major systems and ways we can help them to function properly. No Da Vinci Science Center medical camp would be complete without the chance to practice what you’ve learned on our friend Cyndi the SynDaver, an anatomically correct synthetic cadaver!

Cyndi the SynDaver is supported by Highmark Blue Shield.

Use the Force
Friday, April 2

In-Person Camp

No need to travel to a far-off galaxy to master these forces! We control and change the forces of motion that rule our entire universe every day. Together, we’ll discover how to do some pretty mind-bending things using gravity, friction, and even levitation. Campers will also enjoy their very own Use the Force Live Science Show presented by a Da Vinci Science Center educator.

Spring Fling
Monday, April 5

In-Person Camp

Time to take those extra eggs and toss them! Campers will be challenged to design devices with eggs in mind. We’ll learn about the engineering design process in a fun and engaging way. How far can you fling an egg? Can you safely protect an egg from a 2-story drop? What about a collision? There are so many fun opportunities to explore science topics in unconventional ways!

*Please note, today might get messy, so we recommend wearing clothing you may be willing to sacrifice
