June 11-15

Sleuthing Science

Put your investigative skills to the test and get those magnifying glasses ready! We’re going undercover to solve the mysteries of science using forensics, microscopes and more. 

June 18-22

Inventor’s Workshop

Make, Create, Innovate in our Inventor’s Workshop where mistakes are O.K. and testing and making is the name of the game! Let your imaginations run wild and far and let’s get inventing in preparation for the 8th Annual Maker Faire Kansas City. 

June 25 – 29

Into the Galaxy 

Up, up, here we go! Black holes, rocket ships, astronauts, stars, and galaxies far, far away are ready to be discovered. Get your gear on and prepare for a week that’s out of this world in discoveries. 

July 9 - 13

Ancient Adventures  

Our time machines are ready to travel back to the past where dinosaurs roamed, pyramids were built, treasures were sailed across the world and the internet didn’t exist. Are you ready?! 

July 16-20

Science & Fiction

From the chemistry of brewing potions to the anatomy of what makes a super hero…SUPER! Let’s explore the science behind some of our favorite books and movies. 

July 23-27

Catch the Code

Decipher the robotic message with a mental and physical workout! We’re going to sharpen our minds and bodies with engineering, coding, and reasoning skills before the secret code passes us by. 

July 30 – Aug 3

Science Sampler  

A dash of electricity (waves), a pinch of chemistry, a smidge of food science, and what do we get? A delicious sample of all-things-science to end the summer!
