Summer camp provides kids with lasting memories, adventures in the great outdoors, and the hard-earned ability to take instruction from an adult wearing shorts. Redefine authority with this Groupon.
$90 for Five-Day Summer Camp (Up to $140 Value)
During Mad Science summer camps, kids ages 6–11 engage their noggins while having fun for three hours a day as dedicated, fun-loving instructors broaden their minds with exciting experiments. The Super-Duper Science Sampler camp enlightens students with a different branch of scientific exploration each day. Little learners will construct catapults, stir up heady potions, and build their own camera obscura.
Mad Science of Hampton Roads' other camps hone in on more specialized knowledge. During the Secret Agent Lab, kids decode messages and harness night vision to solve crimes with hands-on experiments. The Crazy Chemworks camp introduces youngsters to slime, the pH scale, and chemical reactions. This Groupon is not valid for the Outdoor Explorers camp or partner camps. See the camp schedule.
Mad Science’s highly trained instructors strive to ignite scientific curiosity in young learners, eschewing dry lectures for engaging hands-on activities, experiments, and games. Their professional, age-appropriate syllabi—which meet national- and state-science-curriculum standards—broaden educational horizons during afterschool programs, in-class workshops, summer camps, and preschool programs, cleverly disguising the fundamentals of scientific exploration within interactive experiments. As the junior scientists get down to business with oodles of hands-on experiments, the instructors teach them the safe and proper use of their equipment. Mad Science also hosts special events and birthday parties—which earned it the Parents Connect Parents' Picks 2009 Best Party Entertainer award—that open little eyes to scientific concepts with on-location experiments, hovercraft rides, or a freshly cloned woolly mammoth.
