At Destination Science, we use science to prepare your child for life!
We make it fun and easy for kids to be excited, curious & confident about science! This early enthusiasm is a huge boost for our children that will help them both in and out of school. They appreciate and value the wonder of the world around them and take better care of it now, and as adults. Developing curiosity makes kids lifelong learners about everything.
Which side of the brain do experts say will be most important in the 21st century?
The RIGHT side, where we develop creativity, imagination, and the emotional intelligence needed to collaborate and develop great relationships with others. In all of our activities, we teach your child how to ask great questions and how to wonder. Every day provides opportunities to create new things and imagine. We even have a special time in the daily schedule for games and activities where your child will work with others to solve fun challenges and problems.
Some grown-ups didn’t have great experiences with science when they were kids. They may think it’s too hard, or boring, or only “just for some people.” Attitude counts a lot in achievement! Wouldn’t it be great if our kids grow-up with positive impressions about science because of the fun they had learning at camp?
Many of our campers will have their interest sparked in ways that motivate them to study more science with confidence and enthusiasm. It will encourage some kids to consider careers in science, engineering, and technology. The imaginative thinking that we develop is also necessary in design, art, music, and other creative fields. That’s good for them, and good for the world.
The first day they came home they were wearing their brain hats that they made and couldn’t stop telling us interesting facts about the brain and other human anatomy.”
I love how as I picked up each item he brought home and asked what it was, he responded; OH! with excitement and went on to show me. The way everything was taught really made the science fun. I wish this existed when I was growing up! I also thought that the teachers were excellent!”
Our son is into cars, so the the day he came home with the Alternative Energy Racer was all he could talk about and play with! We believe that Destination Science camp opened up our son’s mind to new and challenging topics, which could be with him for life!”
