Sporty Science

Explore different sports and the STEM concepts that make them possible!

Week of August 8–12

Does the inside of a tennis ball look the same as a golf ball? And speaking of golf balls, what’s up with all those little dimples? How do physics and biomechanics influence the way athletes move and sports are played? Join us as we explore different sports and the STEM concepts that make them possible.

Pricing

Summer camp is $250 for members and $300 for non-members. Camp fees include a daily snack, camp t-shirt, water bottle and all camp activities. Campers will need to bring their own lunch to help energize them for our scientific adventures.

Our campers are divided into two groups - rising 1–3 and 4–6 graders - so we can tailor activities for each age group. Camps include opportunities to explore the Science Museum, visit our Dome theater and participate in a variety of Live Science Programs. Campers will also get a chance to experience our summer touring exhibition Planet Shark: Predator or Prey.

Schedule

Camps will be held from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. After-camp care is available until 5:30 p.m. for $50 per week per child to help make these extraordinary experiences possible for all schedules. Families must register prior to using this service.
