QuantumCamp

Registration: Click to register »
Deadline: Limited seating. Register today!

QC believes that kids are innate scientists – they have boundless curiosity and continually explore and experiment with their physical world. As a team of educators, we create an environment where this curiosity flourishes!
Our camps provide a socially and intellectually exciting setting for kids to engage in scientific exploration. We ask driving questions to campers, and provide a fun environment to experiment and make findings while deepening their understanding of our universe. By designing a camp experience where kids are scientists, we encourage them to apply their curiosity, while enjoying the summer!
At QC, we believe making this happen requires 3 things:
– Educators who love science
– Materials for kids to build with and experiment
– Time for theory, design, and lab work resulting in individualized week-long projects
