Quotes from parents of previous campers:
“I expected a more simple/basic type of science but absolutely loved the depth - especially, the circuit board/electricity - so great to get this age into hands- on projects that demonstrate abstract concepts. The more physics/chemistry the better!”
“due the wonderful content of this science camp, we bought a family membership.”
“I liked that the projects were creative and not necessary 'easy' projects that we could do at home. They used a lot of fun materials and were interesting.”
