Spring Break Camps

Mad Science of St. Louis offers two camps during Spring Break: Mad Inventors Camp and Red Hot Robots Camp for kids in grades 2 though 5. Hurry to sign up as these full-day camps fill fast!

At Mad Science Mad Inventors Camp, camp is designed by kids – the inventors! Each day, campers will be given a series of challenges they must overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – their minds. Campers will learn to fabricate a winning Egg Drop design, construct a dancing robot, and assemble a working light saber to take home! While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% fun!

Red Hot Robots Camp is a week of fun with amazing robots! Campers will learn about the uses of robots in our world and spend time experimenting with super cool red hot robots. They'll experiment with sound sensing robots, line-tracking robots, and more! Discover the science of circuits and how robots use sensors to explore things around them. Kids will use their skills to build their very own working robots to take home. 

Red Hot Robots Camp is held March 18-22, 2019 at Faust Park – St. Louis Carousel in Chesterfield from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
