We introduce children to the classification of dinosaurs, when they lived, why they disappeared, the periods of the prehistoric world and more. Give your children an unforgettable camp journey into the prehistoric world of dinosaurs!

Junior Robotics with Edison: Program, Learn and Play!

child playing and designing a science experiment on a ipad Edison is a versatile bot that opens students’ imagination. Campers can make use of Edison’s Lego-compatible pegs and a handful of sensors to solve a variety of problems.

Edison can respond to barcodes to perform various predefined tasks or be programmed using a computer using one of a few different languages. We focus on using EdScratch, a block-based programming language that looks and feels like Scratch but is customized for Edison.

Wild Animals: Lego Wedo Robotics

lego alligator This class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® WeDo™ Robots. Using LEGO® bricks, students build a hungry alligator, a flying bird, and a roaring lion. They also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer.

Spy Training Camp

Do you love solving mysteries and looking for clues? cartoon graphic of sky holding a magnifier glass
This is Your Camp!

Kids become cadets in a Spy Training Academy and solve daily mysteries. Along the way, they explore disguises, secret codes, spy gadgets, disappearing ink, chromatography, fingerprint analysis, forensic chemistry, sign language, secret compartments, night vision, spy cameras and so much more! This camp encourages learning in chemistry, physics, engineering, biology, forensics, creative thinking, problem solving and teamwork

Junior Inventors

A week of fun, creativity, and of course -- Engineering! child sitting next to hand made robot

Over the course of a week, students will invent new machines and explore creative design solutions using the Engineering Design Process.

Design your own Drawing Robot, make your own Playdough, build your own operation game, and use your Tinker Box to invent something new.

We encourage learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage, and curiosity through open-ended challenges in the fields of STEM, fine arts, and learning.

The sky’s the limit when you bring your imagination to the table!

Fun Foundations: Dream Big, Build Bigger!

child building a structure of rockets Come discover the fascinating world of engineering! Campers are challenged to create various builds using the engineering design process.

Build the strongest bridge, the most accurate catapult, and the tallest tower. We will finish with a blast, kids design, build, and launch their own bottle rockets!

Campers are encouraged to embrace challenges with a great deal of humour, curiosity, and courage because we believe that problem solving with a positive attitude fosters immense creativity. Let your imagination run wild!

Junior Adventure and Discovery! Engineering for Kids - Astronaut logo

Explore the skies, mix your Crazy Concoctions, and jump into 5 days of jam-packed adventure!

Campers will discover the fascinating world of chemical engineering as they out on the lab coats and make their own playdough, slime, and bubbles.

The young astronauts will get ready for the big space adventure as they design, build, and launch their bottle rockets over 100 ft into the air.

Drones Camp

Take to the skies!

child flying a drone Housing a thrilling, hands-on aerial robotics platform, this camp is the perfect introduction to the world of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

In this indoor camp, safety is a priority as students learn to code their drones to accomplish cool challenges such as flipping forwards and backward!

Campers master basic piloting skills, construct an obstacle course to fly through and stage a final race to showcase their cumulative knowledge. Putting critical thinking to the test, the camp also has students brainstorm ways drones could be used for good, sketching out their ideas for new and innovative drones and drone uses.

App Development using JavaScript

Ready to build and share crazy fun apps! graphic of phone showing fun apps that are great for kids and stem

App design has exploded over the past 5 years due to lower costs and easier access to essential tools, so give your engineer the knowledge to stay ahead in today’s technological society. Join this unique experience in which you get to code in JavaScript, test, and create your own apps in real-time using an easy-to-understand format. The best part about this week is that they’ll be able to save their created apps right to their (or your own) devices for play anywhere, anytime!

Agent of Travel

Pack your bags and let's map out our trip around the world!

child wearing a box on head that looks like an astronaut Over 100 years ago, airplanes had not even made their first flight, yet today we can fly to the other side of the world in 12 hours! Over the next five days, teams will work together to see who can travel the farthest around the world.

This trip around the world will require students to design their very own cars, planes, and even a ROCKET!

Our camps give students a meaningful, hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of engineering and design-thinking methodology; challenging them to collaborate with their fellow campers to create solutions to real-world problems.

Mechatronics Master Minds: Young Inventors!

child built robot carThis summer our campers will build, create, and invent as they explore the basics of mechatronics engineering, logic-based programming using littleBits and Arduino. They will work together to design gadgets, tools, and machines from self-driving vehicles and art machines to a Chain Reaction Contraption.

Our mission is to empower everyone to create and invent.
