Science Camp - Mad Science Style

Summer Camp Locations


Summer camps with Mad Science are the best!

Mad Science camps offer a daily combination of in-class discovery and exploration, outdoor games and physical activities, and hands-on applications of the scientific principles presented.

Your child will be able touch, see, hear, smell and taste what science is really all about.

We use simple, real world science techniques that allow even the youngest of campers to enjoy our learning environment.

Campers create, build and assemble a variety of take-home projects while exploring how science affects the world around us. 

Children have so much fun that they forget they’re learning!   

Mad Science camps are offered in these locations:

Bothell /
Mill Creek

Edmonds / Shoreline

Sammamish / Snoqualmie

Ravenna-Eckstein / Laurelhurst / Magnuson

Greenlake / Ballard / Loyal Heights

Magnolia / Queen Anne


All Seattle


With seven exciting week-long camps, including:

  3... 2... 1... Blast Off! - NEW for 2018
Step into the shoes of a rocket scientist as we discover the fundamentals of rocket design, building, propulsion and the physics of flight. We'll explore the science of areodynamics as we build and test the performance of paper airplanes. As we prepare for "Launch Day," we'll focus on the concepts involved in launching and recovering different types of rockets. Children will build and take-home their own Mad Science SkyBlaster Rocket. -- Best for children entering 1st through 6th grade 

Crazy Chemworks
The wonders of chemistry are revealed as your junior chemist creates surprising concoctions, breaks molecules with ease and shakes up a flask full of fun. Kids will use the tools, safety procedures and laboratory techniques of real chemists as they investigate solids, liquids and gases at the atomic level. They’ll craft chemical combinations to create super-sticky-stuff, analyze the properties of light and discover why things glow-in-the-dark. Exploring the elements has never been so much fun!
-- Best for children entering 1st through 6th grade


Detective Science - NEW for 2017! 
Join the Mad Science Bureau of Investigation as we discover clues, analyze evidence, connect the dots and solve the crime. Are detectives really scientists in disguise? Using the power of observation – and their nifty Inspecti-Kit – our young detectives will identify clues and collect evidence from fingerprints to trash. They’ll discover the skills necessary to be a crime scene lab technician and learn that proper analysis and correct conclusions are critical to solving the crime scene puzzle!
-- Best for children entering 2nd through 6th grade who are able to read and write.


Eureka! The Invention Camp - Available as a half- or full-day camp based on location
Children 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, construct working light sticks to take home, and assemble a set of circuits with batteries and light bulbs. While Thomas Edison said, "invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration," this camp is 100% FUN! 
-- Best for children entering 1st through 6th grade


Radical Robots  - NEW for 2018!
Join Mad Science and our Radical Robots as we investigate the FUNdamentals of robotics. We'll examine the science behind electricity, conductors and simple cicuits. We'll experiment with line-tracking, sound and infrared sensors, and investigate how robots use the components to function and explore the world around them. Each day campers will assemble sections of their own Kingii Dragon Robot from OWI (cost included in camp price) to take home and continue their discoveries.  
-- Best for children entering 2nd through 6th grade



Campers will build and take home a Kingii Dragon Robot 

Spy Academy - NEW for 2017! 
Look out 007 – The Mad Science spy academy is in session! Sharpen your special operative skills as you uncover the secret world of espionage. Learn the art of listening and observation, sending secret messages and decoding clues, and check out security systems and super cool spy equipment. Discover what it takes to keep things safe and how technology works in the spy game. The key to being a great spy is your ability of “sniff” out your suspects and uncover their secrets. 
-- Best for children entering 2nd through 6th grade who are able to read and write.

Super Science Sampler (formerly Science in Motion)
Science comes in all shapes and sizes and we'll examine a few during this hands-on expedition. Become an engineer and build bridges, domes, cubes, and pyramids. Assemble and control pulleys, levers, catapults, and simple machines. Use chemistry to make your own sidewalk chalk and crystal gardens. Become an ornithologist and discover the unique characteristics of birds!
-- Best for children entering 1st through 6th grade
