We will experience eerie glowing potions, fabulous fluorescence, and even make glow-in-the-dark slime! Join the Wright brothers and their super scientist mom to test your engineering skills in a fantastic race. Learn about bodacious bionics and make a marvelous robot of your own! Each day campers will take home a project that reminds them to TAKE OVER THE WORLD! MWAHAHAHA! Oh, wait… we mean, they will take home a project that reminds them of what they learned at camp that day.
