Mad Science Providing STEM Camps At #1 Education Place

Mad Science of Palm Beach is providing three weeks of STEM camps to children of the western communities at its new camp site, located at #1 Education Place in the original Wellington Mall. Each week, children will get to solve problems, engineer and discover the world around them through science, technology, engineering and math.

“We are excited to be continuing our hands-on, engaging programming that students and parents have come to know us for through our after-school programs into the summer,” said Ellen Maringione, owner of Mad Science of Palm Beach. “This is something the area has been asking for, and we couldn’t be happier to be in our new location this summer.”

Mad Science STEM Camps will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. the weeks of June 19-23, July 10-14 and July 17-21 for children entering first through sixth grade. Each week’s camp covers a different topic, so children can come all three weeks and experience something new.

Inventors and Explorers (June 19-23): Each day, children will be given a series of challenges that must be overcome by using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world-famous inventors and the most important thing of all — their imaginations. While Thomas Edison said invention is 10 percent inspiration and 90 percent perspiration, this camp is 100 percent fun!

Rockets and Robots (July 10-14): Participants will be inspired to take on the adventure of space exploration. Students will learn about the solar system, stars, space travel and beyond through experiments and games. The fun doesn’t stop there. Children build their own solar-powered robot to take home and learn about the engineering behind tomorrow’s robots, from gears to power sources.

FUN-gineering (July 17-21): Campers will get the chance to tap into their engineering skills. From creating simple machines to constructing molecules, children will get a first-hand look into how the world is built. They will even get the chance to build a geodesic dome they can climb into.

The Mad Science STEM camps provide a unique science, technology, engineering and math curriculum, explained Nadia Sorocka Smart, operations manager of Mad Science of Palm Beach. “It is all about learning through fun,” she said.
