Edge on Science
Other Ideas: YMCA of Greater Boston Day Camps; LINX Camps; French Cultural Center - Summer Fun in French; Leaders 4SC: Summer Middle School Civics Workshop; Parkway Community YMCA Camps
Edge on Science is a place where your child has the freedom to explore applied science & engineering. Individual and team projects make it a hands-on experience.
From rockets to computer coding, choose from ten different, fun-filled weeks of STEM camp!
Whatever skills or abilities your child brings, we meet them where they are and then guide them to the next level. Along the way, they will unplug and make new friends. It’s what we do!
Lead instructors are engineers, scientists and/or scholars. And the child to instructor / assistant ratio is 7:1 or less, which means a custom experience for your child, with individual attention.
Choose from rocketry, bridge building, catapult engineering, hydraulics, microscopy & biomimicry, optics & astronomy, drones & computer coding and drone racing. We use engineering drawings, tools, instruments and computer simulations, as we design, build and test. Games and challenges add to the fun!
You may also bring an Edge on Science custom program to your school, community or youth group. Just call and ask.
Here is what parents and campers are saying:
“Edge on Science takes science off the page and puts it into the hands of your child.” — Laura Whitney, parent
“My boys came home every day full of ideas and eager to return the next day. Hydraulics was unlike any other camp they’ve been to — in the best possible way.” — Anita Raman, parent
“This camp was awesome. It’s all I could talk about when I got home. I’m going to make my parents buy supplies so I can build more bridges at home.”
— Noah S., camper
“Edge on Science camp has been a wonderful learning experience for my grandson, Dylan. He has enjoyed every minute of it.”
—Carole Bradley, grandmother
“I’m amazed at how eager my 10-year-old daughter was to go to camp each morning and at what she was able to accomplish during her week of camp.”
—Geoffrey Clark, parent
'I have to tell you my son loved your Rocket Camp. He came home happy every day. He was so excited. And he's never done anything like this before, but this was really right up his alley, so thank you.' —Ingrid Tripple, parent
“Catapult Camp is non-stop, hands-on engineering and physics fun with a medieval flair. The kids got to work on their building, teamwork and critical thinking skills without even realizing it.” — Lorraine Olendzenski, parent
“Before I came here, I didn’t know how to code. I learned a lot!” — camper
“(I give Drone & Code a) 10, because it is a really fun experience and you get to learn a new programming language.” — camper
