Note: STEM Mash-Ups consist of morning and afternoon segments that cover two different topics, creating a well-rounded day.​

Math Games and Puzzles from Around the World
Experience math in a whole new way. We'll play fun and challenging problem-solving games and puzzles from around the world, including Ancient China and Egypt, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. We'll try out toothpick, tangram, and logic puzzles, play strategy games with partners, and unravel the secret of the ancient Chinese magic square. Finally, we’ll help a man stuck in a pit find his way out!

Pinball Design Challenge
Learn about simple machines as we design, build and test some fantastical contraptions! We will explore pulleys, levers, wheels and axles as we design chain reactions in which one event triggers another. We'll work in teams to engineer machines to test gravity, friction, ramps and gears. We may even give our reactions some added pizazz by incorporating circuits! We will then use concepts and contraptions to design and build our own pinball machines!

Masks are required to be worn for all in-person programs. All participants will receive a short health screening and a thermal temperature check upon arrival to the check-in area for each class gathering. 

What to Bring: Because this is a full-day, in-person camp, participants are required to bring the following to each camp: 

  • Backpack for carrying their personal items and any camp materials they will be taking home. Note: In order to limit individual interactions, all participants will be required to keep their items together.
  • A mask appropriately sized to cover the child's nose and mouth and any additional Personal Protective Equipment the child will be utilizing. Note: Wearing of masks will be required for all participants. 
  • Filled water bottle.
  • A sack lunch and 1-2 snacks, depending on the child's needs. 
  • All programs spend a portion of each day outside. Please send your child with clothing appropriate for the weather (jacket, sweatshirt and/or rain jacket).
