SUPER SPACE ROBOTS


Journey into space with your robot friend! Maybe like Luke Skywalker? This is a fun yet challenging camp based on a Space theme, where students learn to work in pairs building and programming a “space-worthy” Lego EV3 robot. They learn basic and advanced techniques, programming on a graphical interface. They learn to program sensors and motors, and become skilled in problem solving. Students will learn the building blocks of Lego Robot EV3 programming and will finish off the week by completing an inspiring problem-solving challenge. This is a camp that your child is sure to remember, long after the summer is gone! This space themed camp is a perfect combination of ‘fun+learn’ for students, and inspires them to understand how robots and machines work

Recommend Science Cosmos for any young mind that is inquisitive and wants to learn

Heather D. - 5 star Parent facebook review

My son has been attending the Robotics class for going on almost two years now and he loves it!! He started with Legos and is now coding in Minecraft. He is always excited to go and remiss to leave. We would recommend it for any young mind that is inquisitive and wants to learn in a technologically savvy environment aided by bright and wonderful instructors!

MASTER MINECRAFTER


This Minecraft camp for ages 9-14 years retains the magic of the very popular Minecraft video game, while adding elements to it that facilitate learning concepts in S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Language Arts, Math). The camp offers a controlled and curated game environment rather than an open-ended Minecraft world. A variety of challenges using Minecraft based themes, appropriate for this age group are introduced. Being in the Minecraft world makes it irresistible and Kids explore and learn by observation and problem solving. They solve challenges presented to them in the Minecraft world. This camp is perfect combination of fun+learning for any student who is excited to learn by using a very fun game!

My son has learned so much and he now can't wait to start Minecraft!

My son loves Science Cosmos! So far, he has learned so much and he now can't wait to start Minecraft coding! The teachers are very professional and friendly and they teach every students in their own level. I recommend Ms. Ashley. She is very professional and caring. Thanks Science Cosmos!



SCRATCH GAME CREATOR


Can designing a video game be as easy as drag and Why play a video game, when you can Create one of your own? Don’t let the name fool you, because both boys and girls love this camp! This camp is a topic close to your child's heart and will inspire them to go deeper into the mechanics of video game design. In this Video Game Design and Learning camp offered by Science Cosmos, students learn game programming while working on game-like puzzles and projects within a graphical interface. The game programming activities are designed to teach students computational thinking and the basics of computer programming. Students solve puzzles by programming visual code blocks to achieve a goal. In the process they learn how to create a video game step by step. Kids learn at their own pace and stay motivated as they earn badges by completing each game-like lessons. The challenges are tailored to the students age and ability.

Our Son is always Looking forward to his Class ...

Our son David has been learning robotics at Science Cosmos for a year. He is always looking forward to his Saturday class. The teachers are really nice, specially Dr. Ashley, who is always making sure that the kids communicate to parents what they have learned that day. We appreciate that they are making efforts to put more online videos so the kids could keep working at home. >> MORE PARENT TESTIMONIALS

LEGO STEM CAMPS


Learning science and engineering has never been such fun! Your child lovers Lego's and they are sure to love this camp. This Hands-on program from Science Cosmos enables students to work as young scientists and engineers, helping them to investigate and understand the operation of simple and compound machines found in everyday life. They learn various concepts in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM). The camp provides an enjoyable yet challenging lessons in which students can develop skills such as creative problem-solving, communication of ideas, and teamwork. The activities lead students to make initial use of scientific method through observation, reasoning, prediction, and critical thinking. students build models covering the concepts related to various simple machines. Students experience the mechanical and structural principles normally hidden away inside everyday machines and structures. They get hands-on experience with easy-to-build models for simple machines, mechanisms and structures. Students understand how to apply mechanical and structural principals to their own models.

Perfect for ages 9-14 yrs.


ROCKET SCIENTIST


This awesome camp zooms into the fantastic world of rockets! Students have a great time launching indoor rockets.They learn about the physics behind rocketry and learn to collect and analyze data and do experiments with different variables.Various principles in rocket physics are covered while students have a fun time ‘Blasting off' from an indoor straw rocket launcher. Students follow a structured lesson plan. 

Perfect for ages 9-12 yrs.



MEDIEVAL BATTLE PHYSICS


Get your Medieval gear on for battle! In this camp, participants experience the thrill of flinging projectiles from medieval machines such as trebuchets and catapults, while the lessons focus on learning scientific principles related to height, velocity and distance. Students can alter characteristics of the Medieval siege machines to test different variables. They see in action, concepts such as levers, inertia, counterweights, torsion and friction. They get an understanding of projectile motion, Newton’s Laws of Motion and potential and kinetic energy. Medieval costume is not required, but welcome!

Perfect for ages 9-12 yrs.



MATH BLASTERS


How about learning math by building cool models?  Math Blasters is a hands-on course by Science Cosmos that teaches mathematical problem solving in fun way. Mathematics problems can be a difficult concept for children to grasp, where they struggle to hold on to abstract thoughts when making their way through the problem solving process.  Students build while they explore intermediate geometry concepts and related structures in 3-D. The hands on projects teach Math concepts in a experiential way, laying the foundation for higher mathematical learning. The students live in a 3-D world, so it makes sense for them to connect with geometry on a 3-D level.  Students build models using math manipulatives and learn concepts such as Fibonacci sequence and 3D volumes in a Fun way. This innovative course utilizes Knex elements as the tool that makes abstract math tangible.  

Perfect for ages 9-12 yrs.
