Dec. 30 “Deconstruction Day”

If you have ever wanted to know what makes a clock tick or a radio run this is the camp for you!  We will take gently used electronics and find out what makes them work (or not work).  Campers will get to use many different tools to open up and peer inside some pieces of modern technology.

Dec. 31 “Art and Science”

Using a variety of objects, we will make beautiful artwork that is generated by creativity and a little bit of science.  Ink flowers, solar paper designs and more will be created and on display during this day of camp.

Jan. 02 “Science of Magic”

We again welcome the Smith County Court of Magic as campers will get to learn some very cool magic tricks (and the secrets behind them) that they’ll then get to take home to dazzle their family with.  Hosted by the Discovery Science Place’s lead exhibit designer, ropes will be cut, quarters will disappear, and foam balls will multiply right before your eyes!

Jan. 03 “Construction Day”

Always a favorite at the Discovery Science Place, campers will engage in multiple activities to test their engineering and design skills.  Marble runs, zip lines, rubber band cars- all will be on the menu for campers to build and enjoy.

        1. The DSP is open its normal hours during camps. Most camp activities take place in our annex building. While we are usually closed on Mondays during the school year we are often open on camp week Mondays- Winter Break and Spring Break.

  1. Hi Chris, I’m a member of the magic club and my kids – 5th, 8th, and 9th grade – are interested in the magic camp. Is there a way the older two can attend? Jim Cox suggested that I ask you.

    1. Unfortunately our camps are for students in grades K-2nd and 3rd-5th. If by chance you are assisting with presenting at the magic camp your older children may certainly come along during your presentation.
