Brixology Camp sets the foundation for our next generation of makers! Children learn
about different types of engineering and then team up to construct a different engineering-themed
project using LEGO® bricks. We'll learn about aerospace engineering while assembling
a space station. We'll explore mechanical engineering as we build boats and vehicles.
And that's not all! From carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to
truss bridges, your future engineer will build upon their creativity to solve real-world
design challenges, while developing their problem-solving and team-building skills.
Let the tinkering begin!
Jul 29 - Aug 2
Inspire the inventor and scientist in you! Campers will overcome a series of challenges
using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors and the most important
of all - their mind! With a little bit of ingenuity, children will create catapults
and forts, and even construct their own working Light Sabers to take home! While Thomas
Edison said "invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration", this camp is 100%
Future Space Explorers
June 24 - 28
We've teamed up with Mad Science Detroit and NASA in a quest for exploration! We’ll
take a voyage of discovery into the atmosphere and beyond as we explore planets, moons,
and other space phenomena in our solar system. Things will heat up as we examine the
sun and other stars and discover the difficulties of space travel! Kids will get a
firsthand experience of the challenges of living in space as they try assembling a
satellite while training to be an astronaut. For added fun, we’ll learn about the
various technologies that make space exploration possible while bouncing lasers around
the room! Kids will love to build their own Mad Science rocket and participate in
a real “NASA” style rocket launch. Campers will receive many cool NASA take homes.
Aug 5 - 9
Kids will learn about archaeology and the techniques scientists use to excavate long
lost cities. They will discover ancient civilizations and the tools and artifacts
used in everyday life. They also study bone fragments, pottery shards, amber deposits,
and fossils to understand what they can tell us about history. What's more, each class
includes a make and take-home project, like a fossil reproduction, an amber time capsule,
and coins from around the world!
