Mad Science invites you to launch your knowledge of rockets in our exciting Camp Number 4. Following are some topics you will explore during this fun five-day camp. These are only a sample of some of the activities that you will be doing each day. The topics will not necessarily follow this order. However, each of these topics will be included at some point in the camp. We will launch rockets and your child will build several types of rockets. Our camp includes everything your child needs during our camp day. However, if you wish to continue your child’s interest in rocket launches outside our camp, you will need to purchase a launch kit at a hobby shop.

Rocket Concepts - Blast your way into rocket science! Learn the Rocket Safety Code, so you can always have safe launches. Build your own rocket made of recycled materials. Launch a water missile. Experiment with different rocket designs, as you learn what makes a rocket work.

Launching into Science - Investigate Newton's Laws of Motion first-hand. Learn about propulsion with air propelled miniature rockets. Then design your own! Build your own rocket pinwheel. Experience your first real rocket launch in Mad Science, when you fire off a rocket like the one you built.

Rocketry in Space - Build a model Saturn to take home. Create your own nanorover. Team up with fellow campers in a nanorover relay. Eat your own lunar prospector for snack.

Radical Recovery - Get ready to recover! Experiment with the best way to recover a rocket. Learn about parachutes, streamers, helicopters, and other types of recovery systems in this fun-filled day. Build a rocket that is powered by chemicals that you may have eaten!

Rocket Scientists - 3, 2, 1, Blast Off! Experience the most advanced launches with your expert rocket team. Master the concept of rocket staging by operating your own staging exercises. Demonstrate the rocket principles that you have learned all week with a launching finale!
