Crafty Science

Is your child and Einstein or a Picasso?  This is a class for kids who love science and art!  Students will use both sides of their brains, and get their hands dirty, as they learn that science is an art, and there is art in science.  We will discover how the two connect in nature.  From rocks to rockets, and pinecones to polymers, we will have a blast with lab experiments, nature treks and craft projects.  

An exciting, active, engaging, summer science camp for elementary students who will enter grades 1-3 in the fall. This week-long adventure will focus the intersection of art and science.   Participants should bring a refillable water bottle.  For their safety, it is important that each student wear comfortable clothing (which may get a bit dirty) and closed toe shoes.


The Workshop will be held in the Sonderegger Science Center on the Edgewood College Campus. The science center is a K-16 building that serves science students of all ages. 1000 Edgewood College drive, Madison, WI
