What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Have you ever held the DNA of a strawberry in your hand?
Or built a popsicle stick bridge strong enough to hold a gallon of milk?
Our campers have!
Join camp for the day of your choice, and experience what it's all about.
This camp is designed specifically for kids, from their yearly feedback.
What is the experience customers can expect?
This is Brian, the founder. I've worked in customer service for 10 years; from starting positions, to management, to ownership. I know how to give the best customer service possible.
Your children will love camp too!
I started this camp because I'm passionate about science, and teaching children.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I always loved science programs and camps as a child.
As I grew into running small businesses, I realized I had a unique opportunity.
With my science, child care, and business backgrounds (and some help), I began a new kid's science camp.
As this camp grew, it became The Science Factory in 2014.
What do you love most about your job?
My favorite jobs have all involved teaching and managing children.
I have worked at Pump It Up, at The Tech Museum as a Mythbuster, and at Silva Martial Arts.
Every one of these jobs made me excited to wake up in the morning, because of the energy and wonder kids bring into everything they do!

"You're up." At more than 200 AMF Bowling locations across the U.S., that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Now synonymous with bowling, AMF was founded in 1901 as American Machine and Foundry. It wasn't until 1946 that the company made a splash in bowling, when it introduced the automated pin spotter to the public.
Today, AMF's nationwide network of bowling centers is a source of year-round entertainment for people of all ages. Outfitted with a classic bowling alley design, the centers also feature the latest technologies, from high-tech scoring systems to the ability to share experiences on social media. Bowlers can also refuel on a menu of American foods when they get hungry or the little heart-shaped meter above their heads begins blinking.
Like a perfectly broken-in glove or a lucky bat, RD Academy stays with ballplayers for years and years. It also plays an important role in a ballplayer's development.
When Santa Clara University head baseball coach Dan O'Brien founded the academy, he didn't design it for just one age group, but instead as a resource that players can turn to from the moment they pick up a ball to the moment they have to pick out a college. The academy's youth camps, for instance, emphasize the game's fundamentals to kids aged 7–13. When the time comes to move up to the next level, the academy organizes high school showcases, where ballplayers can impress college coaches without hurling a fastball through their bedroom window, and then immediately repairing the window.
For more than three decades, ABC Tree Farms have provided the Bay Area with seasonal fun September through December. Summer inspires the first round of recreation in the form of Summer Fun Zones packed with inflatable bounce houses masquerading as castles and slides. During September, they run 20 pumpkin-themed locations, some of which also feature inflatable bounce houses and other attractions. Once Thanksgiving passes, groves of Christmas trees spring up, having made their way south from Oregon and Washington. There they will stand until Christmas Eve, hoping to decorate homes or become the model that inspires a revamped line of evergreen air fresheners.
With hands gripped to the wheels of karts capable of cresting 45 miles per hour, up to 12 racers hum around the hairpin turns and straightaways of K1 Speed's indoor track during adrenaline-spiking sprints toward the podium. This brand of excitement can be found at all 20+ locations, where racers eschew the fumes and inflammatory skywriting of gas kart exhaust for European, eco-friendly electric karts designed to instantly accelerate out of curves, which are bordered by safety barriers that absorb impacts.
