STEMful camps teach the mindsets necessary for cultivating lifelong STEM learning, and are built on the  framework of five objectives: curiosity, purpose, self expression, resourcefulness and innovation.

Our camps engage children ages 3.5-10 years old in wide STEM concepts and activities designed to “sprout their curiosity”. 

Click on the Age Level and Requirements tab for more information prior to signing up.

All camp programs are designed for Team Curie, DaVinci, and Tesla (unless specified). Refer to the Age Level and Requirements tab to learn about each team age range and requirements and Cancellation Policy prior to registration. 

6/5-6/7 and 8/5-8/9: Be Like Darwin (Team Curie and DaVinci)

Our world is full of diverse plants and animals. Where does all of this diversity come from? From adaptations, genetic mutations, and the adventures of Charles Darwin, students will grasp knowledge of natural selection and the evolutionary history of humans. Join us for an evolutionary adventure and be like Darwin!

No camp for Team Curie on 6/5-6/7.

6/5-6/7: Machnimation (Team Tesla only)

Calling all builders, engineers, and those who love to make things go! Join us for Mechanimation, our camp that is a little bit maker space, with a lot of discovery about the physics and engineering that goes into creating things that move using an animation software. From wheels and gears, to levers and arms, let’s get moving! 

6/10-6/14, 7/22-7/26, 8/26-8/30: Moon, Stars, and Mars (Team Curie)

Hop into the “Curiosity” Rocket and let’s go on a few space adventures! We will blast off to the moon, and learn about its craters, and biology.  Along the way, STEMful astronauts will learn about the science behind the stars, the solar system and why Mars is called a “sister planet”.

6/10-6/14,7/22-7/26, 8/26-8/30: Is Pluto a Planet? (Team DaVinci)

Is Pluto a Planet? We’re seeking STEMful astronauts to help us explore the solar system and find out the answer! Through our space adventure, young astronauts, will learn about the properties and power of the Sun, then explore the planets that orbit it. See what it takes to travel among them! 

6/10-6/14, 7/22-7/26, 8/26-8/30: Space Odyssey (Team Tesla)

Let’s go on a Space Odyssey! Blast off with us on an epic adventure as we learn about space exploration history, and the groundbreaking scientists who make it possible.

6/17-6/21, 7/15-19: Super Scientists (all Teams)

Join us as we go UP, UP, and away and into the exciting world of Super Scientists! How do scientists accomplish their epic feats? Science enthusiasts will learn about many amazing Super Scientists and their studies to discover the power of their out-of-this world abilities!

6/24-6/28, 7/29-8/2: Jumping Jurassic (Team Curie)

Let’s get jumping into the Jurassic period! Become paleontologists and geologists, and explore the plants, landscape, and dinosaurs during this Mesozoic Era.

6/24-6/28,7/29-8/2: “Ology”-Ology (Team DaVinci, Tesla)

We’re going to dig into “Ology”-Ology! We will become archaeologists to uncover remnants of the things that lived long ago. Perhaps we’ll discover plants fossils and dinosaur bones, and examine them as paleontologists! Deep within the earth lies many layers that have built up over millions of years. To explore the deep realm, we will become geologists. Join us as we explore the fascinating branches of science that will take us back in time.

7/1-7/3, 8/12-8/16: Sensational Science (all Teams)

Science is all around us! Sensational Science expands students knowledge of the world around them through foundational scientific concepts as their lens. Curious scientists will learn a different scientific focus; ranging from biology, chemistry, and physics, and make connections to their daily lives and activities. 

7/8-7/12, 8/19-8/23: Rainforest World (all Teams)

We’re going on an adventure into the rainforest! Students will examine the layers of the rainforest, the water cycle, photosynthesis, and food chains. They will go on to the explore the incredible animals that call rainforest home and explore nonhuman primates and symbiotic relationships. Join us as we explore the unique features of the rainforest.

8/5-8/9: Animation – “Evolution” (Team Tesla)

Join us as we explore evolution through the art of animation.  Throughout the week, students will watch and review notable works from contemporary and vintage artists, identify techniques employed in the work, and then put those into action to create their own projects. Using apps like Stop Motion, students will learn about walk cycles, timing, pacing, motion dynamics and more. Finally, at the end of the week, they will share their animations with younger students during a showcase. Let’s get animating!
