Summer Camps (Ages 6-14)

Get ready to join scienceSeeds for a summer of exploration and wonder at the best STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) and Maker camps Princeton has to offer. Most Princeton area science camps use canned curriculum but at scienceSeeds we develop our own curriculum with your child in mind.

From Harry Potter Science and Star Wars Science to computer-aided design and video game programming, 3D Printing and robotics, our camps are sure to get your children excited about science, technology, and engineering.

Since almost all of our camps involve hands-on activities, children will take home many projects.

Additional Information:

  • Our camp hours are 9:00am-3:30pm unless otherwise noted
    • Our half-day camps allow children to experiment with more than one subject area at a time
  • We offer extended care (early drop-off 8:00am and/or late pickup 5:30pm) for an additional fee
  • Our Camp locations are specified in the camp descriptions
    • All camps marked scienceSeeds main are offered at 29 Emmons Drive – Suite G10
  • Email us with any additional questions or concerns

Please Note:

We love teaching and working with all your children. However, in fairness to our instructors and to all our families who participate in our programs, please do not register your child for a summer program if he or she  does not meet the minimum age criteria on the first day of camp. If you aren’t sure whether or not your child is eligible to participate in a program, please check with our staff. Our age criteria help ensure that all campers have a great and fulfilling experience.

Calling all Builders, Engineers, and Architects! (Ages 6-12)

Learn to think like an engineer as you design structures of different shapes and purposes. Discover what forces come into play when we build tall buildings or design wide spans or engineer roller coasters. Experiment with such diverse building materials as paper, straws, wood, and even spaghetti. Students will learn to identify different bridge designs and construction materials used in modern day engineering. They will work both individually and in teams to create structures which will be tested to see how well they survive under different natural conditions.

 

Sample Activities

  • Designing paper roller coasters
  • Solving STEM challenges - building houses that can withstand hurricanes, extreme temperature, etc
  • Learning about building materials
  • Designing a solar home
  • Mixing concrete

 

Additional Information

  • Projects will depend on the age of the participants
  • Camp hours are 9:00am-3:30pm
  • We offer early drop-off (8:00am) and late pickup (5:30pm) (you can sign up during registration)

Crazy Fun Science: Making , Designing, Tinkering (Ages 6-12)

It’s the end of summer and we saved the best for last! Join us for one last week of exciting science exploration, experimentation, and building! Designed around our favorite science projects from this and past summers, this camp will bounce between themes each day to make sure we highlight the best of the best. From the physics of ballistics to light-up bling, from ooey gooey chemistry to the cutting edge of 3D Printing, we have tons of fun science to explore. Sign up for the whole week or by the day and make sure you end your summer with a bang! 

Priority will be given to full-week campers. 

We will start to process day-by-day registrations (space permitting) mid-August. The daily rate for this camp is $125.00/day.
