For entering Grades 2-5 July 18 –July 22 Time: 9am-12pm
Brixology Camp sets the foundation for our next generation of makers! Kids learn about different types of
engineering and then team up to construct a different engineering-themed project using LEGO® bricks. They
learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station. They explore mechanical engineering as
they build boats and vehicles. That’s not all, from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss
bridges; your future engineer will build upon their creativity to solve real-world design challenges, while developing
their problem-solving and team-building skills. Let the tinkering begin!

NASA: Journey into Outer Space
For entering Grades 1-5 Aug 15-Aug 19 Time: 9am-12pm
Set your future space explorers on a trajectory from our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar
system! This hands-on program will bring children closer to the stars, planets, comets, the galaxy and more. Mix
up various planetary atmospheres, one molecule at a time, and act out the weight of the atmosphere! Live the life
of an astronaut as you discover and experiment with technology designed for outer space. Become a star gazer
as you learn to read a star chart and see how constellations change when you travel across the galaxy. Build your
own Skyblazer Rocket, race a balloon rocket and more! Blast off with our Mad Science rocket launch. Camp
includes daily take homes that are NASA approved.

• Experiments and take homes are subject to change
• Children should bring drink and peanut free snack each day
