In Mad Science camps, kids have so much fun, they don't realize they're learning! Mysteries are solved, rockets fly, and inventions are made! Explore the science behind boogers, burps and everything gross! Make your own sidewalk chalk, bath fizzers and a rocket that can leave the launchpad at over 200 MPH.
