Science teacher Carmelo Piazza (known to giggly kids as "Carmelo the Marshmallow") leads campers in indoor and outdoor experiments, encouraging them to ask questions and work in groups with their peers. In one session children make air cannons that propel marshmallows across the room; in another they’ll contruct a rocket-power car that moves when you blow on it. They’ll also bend light and make rainbows, fashion individualized aquariums and build 30-foot towers without using any ladders. Camp runs July 7–Aug 22, Mon–Fri 9am–3pm. Extended-day options are available. One-week session $455. Ages 5 to 11.
