Summer Science Camps
August 3, 2018 @ 8:00 am - August 7, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until August 17, 2018
Weekly sessions Summer Science Camps at Connecticut Science Center are filling up already! Kids grades 1-6 experience hands-on science enrichment through fun and engaging activities — so don’t wait to register.
Campers in Camps include structured activities with our STEM Educators, as well as supervised free time to explore the Science Center’s galleries and exhibits.
We offer Day Camps during school vacation as well as week-long programs in the summer. Each camp’s theme helps develop science concepts, guiding campers to greater understanding of science material and its application to the real world. Kids can explore a different science theme at each camp!
JULY 9–13 OR JULY 23–27: ROBOT CARNIVAL
Notice: You may only sign up for one of the Robot Carnival sessions.
Step right up and try your hand at the games of the Robot Carnival! Build and program resident Connecticut Science Center robots to compete in events. Go behind the curtains to see what it takes to make an arcade contraption run. Complete obstacle courses and create games that will challenge new and experienced programmers alike.
JULY 16–20: JURASSIC HARTFORD
Calling all paleontologists and geneticists! The Connecticut Science Center has been working to create a Jurassic world for our dinosaurs to roam, but one has escaped! We need you to create a trap to capture her unharmed and extract her DNA to make sure we have the right species. Then help us engineer a new enclosure to keep both our dinosaurs and our visitors safe.
JULY 30–AUGUST 3: TOUR OF THE PLANETS
Space…The final frontier. Trek across our solar system to complete missions revealing the weird worlds that inhabit our corner of the universe. Investigate what conditions allow life to thrive and help scientists discover exoplanets!
AUGUST 6–AUGUST 10: MUGGLE MAGIC
Get ready for an enchanted week of muggle magic! Dive into the world of the invisible, study herbology and plant diversity, learn about owls and mythical creatures and discover how to make your broom levitate. Earn points for your house by solving puzzles and passing your classes.
AUGUST 13–AUGUST 17: LOST CIVILIZATIONS
