At March Elementary School in Easton

Click here for camps at the Da Vinci Science Center

This summer, give your child the super powers of science. Join us for week-long summer camp at March Elementary School in Easton, Pa.

Through a partnership with Easton Area School District, the Science Center is offering four weeks of summer camp to students in first through fourth grade.

Experienced educators lead hands-on STEM activities that inspire campers to think creatively, be curious, and learn through their own observations and discoveries. Campers can learn about the physics that go into building a rollercoaster, design their own video game, and become real-life wizard scientists.

Give your child the super powers of science and help them question, examine, and re-imagine the world around them.

Programming & Video Game Making

Full Day Session: 9 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Using Scratch – an icon-based computer language made for kids – we’ll learn the basics of coding and programming as we make our own apps and video games.  Whether you are a new computer user or have been playing video games for years, everyone is sure to have a great time developing this 21st century skill together.  Educators will challenge each camper based upon her/his ability and provide individualized guidance to help them advance.  We’ll spend the week working with computers, tablets, robotics, and several “unplugged” activities to add variety and complexity to our days. As a bonus on Friday, campers will travel to the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown to explore the exhibits and technology.
