Our K-1 Summer camps include full of fun STEM activities that will take us both indoors and outdoors! Click on any class name below for its description.

Using a LEGO Education kit designed for ages 5+, our Early Engineers will learn about simple machines by building seesaws, spinning tops and more!  In Let’s Roll, Engineers! we’ll start each class with a brief story-based challenge to build our own vehicular solutions.  

Students will use electronics and physics to create objects that glow, float and fly! 

We will learn about the outside world by studying butterflies, bees, and animals and more!

Thank you M.I.T.! The university’s Lifelong Kindergarten Project has developed a new, younger version of its multimedia/ video game programming language, Scratch. Using Scratch Jr. on our iPads, grades K-1 will learn the basics of programming while building their own video games!
