Virtual Science Camp Professor Egghead

ROCKET CAMP

Get ready​ to strap in and blast off with Professor Egghead Science Academy at Virtual Science ROCKET CAMP! ​Every day brings a new challenge as we discover the science behind rockets, planes and everything else soaring through the sky. Eggheads will create, build, and test different types of flying machines like helicopters, rockets, and planes. From bottle rockets soaring ​through ​the air, parachutes safely floating back to earth, and chemical reactions displaying how these awesome machines work. At the end of the week, campers will ​earn their wings, and ​graduate from Egghead Rocket Camp, ready to take to the skies! ​  

ENGINEER CAMP

Put your engineering hat on…It’s time to build! Every day at Virtual Engineering camp, campers will try to pass a new engineering challenge by designing, building, and then testing crazy contraptions. From the egg drop to the strength bridge, from the tall tower and catapult to the balloon car, Campers will have a blast every day with each new challenge. Just like real engineers, everything they build will be tested along the way, from the giant crush test to the twisting tornado test.  At the end of the week, they’ll be ready to engineer their way through anything!

EXPLORER CAMP

Lace up your boots, grab a compass, and buckle up for a week of awesome adventure science with Professor Egghead! All week at virtual science camp, Eggheads will learn what it means to be Extreme Explorers as they dig for fossils, make tar pits that bubble, clean up oil spills, race magnetic bumper cars, and make snow! Each day at camp, Eggheads will take home their experiments, and by the end they’ll be true Extreme Explorers. Caution : Fun Guaranteed!

DETECTIVE CAMP

​There’s a mystery to solve! ​Someone has broken into the Academy, and we need a few good detectives to help track them down! ​Campers will become super sleuths as they use science to solve all types of mysteries​​ while trying to crack the case. They’ll test fiber samples and dust for fingerprints, analyze some blood samples (fake of course) and ​experience all types of awesome science demonstrations by their Professor. ​By the end of the week, campers will ​become real super sleuths!

EXTRAVAGANZA CAMP

Join us (virtually of course) for 4 days of awesome, July 4th Week of interactive, hands-on science!  We’ll be mixing up chemicals, doing awesome demonstrations, and teaching cool science every morning in our Science Extravaganza Camp.  Before camp you’ll receive your Egghead-At-Home Science kit with all the supplies you need to complete every experiment.  Each day your Egghead will login to the provided Zoom meeting link where one of our energetic Professors will guide them through tons of cool experiments, including some awesome science gadgets they’ll be able to reuse and explain to you!

 

materials

If we’re going to be doing science, we’re going to need materials! Luckily, we’ve planned it all out for you, so that all you need to do is register for class and let us do the rest. 

See below for how you’ll get your materials depending on your location and when you register. 

MAIL

If you register for virtual science camp with more than two weeks notice, we’ll ship you all of your materials needed. Your box will arrive with everything needed for camp, including science materials, legos, and any extra goodies, plus a FREE SHIRT to wear to camp each day!

If you are located more than 20 miles from zip 91202 (Glendale, CA), mail is the only option for your materials delivery. Please make sure your address is accurate on your registration or let us know if you have any special considerations.

Do You Accomodate Special Needs?

We make all possible accomodations to suit your Egghead where possible. While we are extremely sensitive to any and all needs that students may have, there are some that fall outside the scope of what we are able to accomodate or manage. Please contact to discuss. We do reserve the right to remove any students for behavior that may be dangerous to other campers, be disruptive, or be a liability.
