Summer is finally here! How will you beat the heat? We hope you’ll spend your break with us as we build, explore and tinker together all summer long.
The next few months are jam-packed with hands-on, fun-filled and STEAM-fueled activities for your family to enjoy. Just take a look at our special summer Thinkery Camps!
Bored over break? Tinker, make and create at a Thinkery Camp! Thinkery Camps spark curiosity and inspire creative learning through hands-on, inquiry-led exploration and discovery. Each weeklong summer camp provides an immersive and innovative environment for Pre-K–5th grade campers to expand their problem-solving potential—and have a whole lot of fun, too!
We’ve also expanded our camp program to include National Instruments and The Magellan International School. Yep, that means we’re able to offer even more of our STEAM- and robotics-themed camp programming this summer!
We’ve still got a few spots left in our 1st–2nd grade and 3rd–5th grade camps. Take a look!
Up, Up and Away
3, 2, 1, blast off! Join us for an exciting week of physical science exploration and experimentation that defies expectation—and gravity! Learn about the forces of flight while investigating the way things fling, float, fly and fall through the air. Prepare for takeoff, aspiring aviators—sky-high adventures await you.
Join the maker movement! Spend the week weaving through the science and art of textiles in this hands-on camp for artists, designers and makers. Hone your creative skills as we master modern fabrication techniques and processes. Join us as we find out what makes fabrication so fantastic—and so fun!
Tinkering with Color and Light
See sparks fly as we make and tinker with cool circuits, bright lights and vibrant colors. Explore how light is used in science, art, medicine, engineering and beyond. Illuminate your imagination and ignite your curiosity by creating your very own magical world of light and color.
Program, Animate and Create
Dream it. Design it. Develop it. This summer, explore exciting new technologies as you think outside the box and let your imagination run wild. That’s right—we’re exploring the creative side of coding! Program, animate and create customized games, crazy inventions and super cool stories. Check it out!
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls—step right up and join the fun! Become a robotics ringmaster and build wacky, whimsical carnival contraptions. You’ll combine technology, playful tactile learning and basic computer programming to create a truly spectacular show.
Please note, all Illuminating Inventions camps are currently sold out.
The best way to beat the heat this summer is by playing and learning at Thinkery. Join us at Thinkery Camp!
