Campers create a habitat for their own aquatic animal — complete with a symbiotic friend — and prototype the next great aquatic innovation to lure in and hook investors at the fish market.

Inspired by real space exploration, children construct a Spacepack, engineer an Astro-Arm device, complete gravity-defying cooking challenges, mine asteroids and observe erupting ice volcanoes.

Making exciting connections between science and art, campers build their own robotic artist to make awesome spin art and discover how inventions have changed the way people create.

Children experiment with the fun of physics and engineering when they build and test their own mega marble arcade, then take on collaborative challenges to level up their design thinking.
