If you would like your child to have their individual specimen, register for "Individual Specimen." If you would like your child to work in a group of four, register for "Group Specimen."





As a CSI intern, teens will use DNA fingerprinting findings to determine who committed the crime. Teens will take DNA from the crime scene and from crime suspects to try to figure out who is the criminal. On the killer’s trail, teens will do gel electrophoresis to help further the investigation. Do you think you can solve the case?




Camps: Science of Magic
Discover the world of magic! From optical illusions to psychology, card tricks to trap doors, campers will investigate the science behind some popular magic tricks, and even learn a trick or two of their own.





Students will learn about the science and fields of paleontology and archaeology. Students will reconstruct past cultures based on their findings at different "dig sites."






Dino-Mite
Toddlers and preschoolers transform into dinosaur detectives as they explore paleontology! In this class, children will study fossils from Arizona, excavate dinosaur eggs and investigate these fossils found inside! Children will also learn how everything from the past is associated with each other including dino poop!





Step into the shoes of a paleontologist and learn about the fossilization process, tools of the  trade, and how to properly execute a dig in different environments. Using paleontology tools and  methods, students will excavate various “dig sites.”
