MADISON – Sci-Quest Hands-On Science Center has scheduled an array of more than 50 summer camps to interest and entertain toddlers to teenagers.

“Campers will enjoy a sizzling summer adventure exploring topics ranging from animals to solar systems, robots to the science of video games and dinosaurs to food chemistry,” marketing manager Jennifer Deermer said.

Three- and four-year-olds can attend a new three-day mini-camp, “3, 2, 1 … Science,” that focuses on the basics of numbers, colors and shapes. “All Aboard!” explores modes of transportation. During “Amazing Animals,” campers learn about “creepy crawlies, crazy reptiles and other cute critters,” Deermer said. “All About Me!” examines good nutrition and health. The ocean is the subject for “Waves and Shades.”

For grades K-1, the “Good Vibrations” mini-camp explores actual musical instruments, while “Reptile Revolution” introduces herpetology. The “Create It!” camp shows the science behind art. “Deep Blue Sea,” “It’s Not Magic, It’s Science,” “Itsy, Bitsy Science,” “Mighty Machines,” “Planes,” “Science of the Holidays” and “Super Sleuths” are other options.

Children entering grades 2-3 can delve into mystery and extraterrestrial pursuits. “Edible Experiments” and “Think, Plan, Build” are mini-camps. Extended camps will be “Betcha Can’t,” “Body Quest,” “Camp Mystery,” “Claws, Paws and Jaws,” “Greetings from Outer Space,” “Greetings Earthlings!,” “Superhero Science,” “Play Ball” and “Tombs and Treasures.”

Prospective fourth- and fifth-graders can attend “Nano Nano” and “Mysteries of History” mini-camps. Full camps are “Adventures in Aviation;” “Age of Empires” studying China, Egypt and Greece; “Crazy Contraptions” for aspiring inventors; “Disasters” like the Titanic’s sinking; “Microscope Adventures”; “Robot Rampage”; “Scratch Programming” that introduces object-oriented coding; and “Smile: The Science of Photography.”

Camps for middle and high school youth delve deeper into the world of science with video game and app design, three-dimensional modeling and simulation, robotics and electronics.

Sci-Quest’s current address is 102-D Wynn Drive in Huntsville. The facility will move to Madison later this year.

Online registration is now open. For more information, call 256-837-0606 or visit sci-quest.org.
