Over #30reasons to choose STAR

Reason #12: The Science of Star Wars: Adventure of the Padawan

Take part in an all-new, amazing Jedi apprenticeship program where Jedi masters will guide you through hands-on challenges that explore the science behind the amazing world of Star Wars!  Learn the physics behind the flight of star ships.  Harness the power of chemistry as you make Jabba Gak and Jakku’s sand.  Learn how to wield a lightsaber like a true Jedi. You may even meet a friendly droid!  But beware, the Dark Side does not like fun, and Kylo Ren has been known to try to put an end to summer camp. We will need your help to defend summer camp and defeat the Dark Side!

“The surprise on the last day of camp will last a lifetime.”
— Veronica J.


Reason #13: Science: Come and Catch them All!

Want to know how Pokemon powers really work? Pikachu’s thunder, Squirtle’s hydro pump, and Bulbasaur’s solarbeam can all be made possible by the power of science! In this camp you’ll learn to Battle with the Best! We’ll be creating real potions, repels, and elixirs in the science lab, exploring all the evolutions of Eevee, and even building our very own Pokeballs to take home!

Reason #21: Mission Possible: Engineering to Save the World

There’s a special mission envelope with your name on it! We need your brains and skills to help solve difficult missions and overcome engineering challenges. But don’t worry— you’ll have expert engineering coaches to help you along the way.  They’ll teach you top-notch S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) skills and guide you through the engineering design process as you face each challenge. You’ll learn various types of engineering from structural engineering techniques that help you build rescue platforms to chemical engineering projects to save the world!


Reason #6: Gardening With Friends: Companion Planting 101

Plants like to hang out with their friends, just like you! In fact, beans, squash, and corn grow so well together that Native Americans called them the three sisters! Develop your gardening skills as you learn about which plants get along best, explore the science behind their symbiotic relationships, and design a garden plan for plants to thrive together. Work together as companions to plant seeds, create garden tools/accessories, and dish up some tasty treats inspired by the seasonal fruits and veggies that you will be planting! Make new friends and get planting!
