Virtual Summer Academy Themes

Mini Scientist: Dino (K-1)

Delve into the exciting world of paleontology and discover all there is to know about the prehistoric giants that once roamed the Earth. How were their fossils made? Why did they go extinct? Why were even the insects of that time period so much larger than any of their counterparts today? Join us for a week of discovery and inquiry into the past.

Mini Scientist: Makers (K-1)

Calling all aspiring architects, engineers, designers, and creators. This is the camp for you! Join us for a week of challenging projects where your imagination can take you anywhere from the deepest ocean to the further reaches of our galaxy.                                                                    

Mini Scientist: Radical Reactions (K-1)

Become a chemist for the week in our Mini Radical Reactions camp! Join our team of Super Cool Science Geeks to learn all about reactions and solutions. Discover how chemistry helps to shape the world around us and is in our everyday lives!                                 

Quark: Gadget & Gizmos (2-3)

Back by popular demand this camp will feature all new curriculum! Join us to learn about robots, computer processing, and engineering. Then, learn how that technology can be used to create innovative solutions and solve problems.                                   

Quark: Expeditions (2-3)

Journey through the many extreme environments found on our planet. Discover what can survive within an active volcano or at the bottom of the ocean. Learn why animals and plants in an ecosystem depend on each other for survival. Put on your adventure hats and find out about the coolest (and hottest) places on the planet.                                 

Quark: MD (2-3)

Ever wondered how our immune system protects us from viruses or what happens to our muscles when we exercise? Join us as we put on our lab coats and investigate the field of medicine by delving into the wonders of the human body.                                        

Tech: The Final Frontier; Space (4-5; 6-7)

The edge of the universe is the only limit in this camp! Put your tech skills to the test as we investigate the STEM behind space travel and exploration. How do we actually get astronauts into space? What is the potential for a trip to Mars? What celestial objects exist in our solar system? Join us to learn all about it.                       

Mythbusters! (4-5; 6-7)

In the movie Up by Pixar Animation, Carl Fredricksen used thousands of helium balloons to turn his house into a makeshift airship. Ever wonder exactly how many balloons he needed? Is it possible for Olaf the snowman in Frozen to not melt under warmer weather? Junior MythBusters will use the scientific method to investigate myths that arise in pop culture, media, and movies. Grab your lab coats, put on your safety goggles, and let’s start mythbusting!            

Climate Justice League (4-5; 6-7)

Come join the Climate Justice League and learn more about the Earth’s climate, what impacts humans have made and what can be done to change the course of our current direction. You, and your Climate Justice League will learn more about climate change and work together to make decisions on what the human population should do next!
