Superhero Senses

To be a superhero, you have got to have super senses! Put your super-hero-super-senses to the test. See, hear, touch, taste and smell your way through our series of superhero challenges! Sometimes our senses might work against us. Can you trick yours into believing something’s real when it’s not? Our experiments will help you discover your super hero super power for sure!

Journey to Space

Solar systems, Asteroids and G-force are just some of the things you’ll discover as we journey into space! Go through Astronaut training and learn about the phases of rocket flight before looking to Sir Isaac Newton for help as we blast a rocket over 200ft into the air! Get your space gear on and have a ride on our Mad Science Rocket car.

Olympic Science Extravaganza

Rio here we come! Science is behind some of our greatest sporting successes and we’re going to discover why. We’ll get hearts pumping, muscles moving and electrolytes energising as we experiment to find how science can help us become the greatest athletes in the world! Experiment to find out if you have the reaction time, balance and skills to be a world class science athlete!

Construction & Destruction

Create, build and break it all down! Explore all concepts of forces including circular forces and accept our structure challenges! Working in teams, we will be building bridges, towers and even buildings – who can build a building to withstand an earthquake or even a bomb!?

Dinosaur Adventure

Dinosaurs are always a huge hit with all Mini Mad Scientists! We will be introduce the differences between meat-eating and plant-eating animals and will have the opportunity to look at some dinosaur teeth up-close. The Jr. Palaeontologists will have a go at casting a dino fossil and make their very own T-Rex Tooth! They will also work get to flex their palaeontologist brains by participating in a dinosaur dig that will allow them to spend a day in the life of a dino hunter.

Epic Explosions!!

For millions of years things have been blowing up! You’ll discover what makes a volcano erupt and then re-create it. Watch as we make a fireball, balloons go boom and experience indoor fireworks! Then learn how to use chemicals safely and how and why things go boom! Have some fab fun mixing up some cool scientific explosions.

Potty Potions

Mix chemicals and manipulate molecules to make some potty potions! Will they heat up, change colour or explode? Join us in the Loony Laboratory for the day to experiment, just like scientists have for years, to see what potions you can make and be amazed at what each one can do!

Divinci’s Discoveries

Leonardo da Vinci started as an artist and collected many scientific observations that he recorded in his notebooks over the course of his lifetime. Children learn about his many discoveries and try their hand at his experiments, from writing notes backwards, measuring human proportions, building a self-supporting arch bridge to building catapults. The budding inventors bring home their da Vinci designs and devices at the end of the day.

Whiz Kids Inventors

Inventions and patents to protect an invention were very popular in the late 1800s. Inventors Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla were locked in several battles over electrical inventions of their era. The Jr Mad Scientists will work together to form circuits and recreate Tesla’s bright atmosphere for the 1893 World’s Fair. Talk about sound and learn that anyone, a child, woman or man, can be an inventor. From simple devices to Rube Goldberg devices we will get those creative juices flowing. Jr Inventors will perform as parts of a complex human machine, prepare a patent proposal and receive a patent certificate at the end of the camp day.

Shipwreck Survival

Archimedes and Benjamin Franklin both created devices to make their society function smoother. This day puts campers on a deserted island in which they must work together to invent a means for collecting food and water, build shelters and bridges. They use the tools at hand to write messages to send in a bottle and witness a volcanic eruption. The children eventually design a boat to escape the island and learn how a magnet can help search for shipwrecks.

Need for Speed

Think fast…Orville and Wilbur Wright worked together to develop the first self-controlled motorized flying machine. Their team efforts also lead to improved bicycle pedals, faster sleds, and cool toys. Children review technological advances in flight and work together to produce improved paper plane designs. They will work as a group to put historical flight events in chronological order. The children then step into space by launching self-built rockets and loading a payload capsule puzzle. These flight fanatics go home with a squadron of paper airplanes for further test flights.

Fact or Fiction

Is it true or science fiction! Jules Verne and Isaac Asimov wrote about future scientific inventions and developed their current technology into future possibilities. Today we will develop submarines that rise or sink, wind-up space stations, and design safety capsules for payloads returning from space. The Jr Explorers will use their brains to decipher fact from fiction, follow the telecommunications timeline and develop one for transportation. Future inventors will get a lesson on lasers, do a rocket relay, build a light stick and work on protecting a space ship from damaging space rays.
