Spring Break will be here before you know it! If you’re wondering what you can do to keep the kids entertained, take a look at the great camps offered at the Thinkery. Kids in pre-K through 5th grade can pack their days with playful, creative learning experiences and hands-on activities that focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). Still celebrating the fact that they get a week off of school (yay!), Thinkery Camp keeps kids playing, moving, thinking and having FUN.

Thinkery Spring Break Camp is held March 18–22, 2019 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Meredeth Learning Lab at the museum’s Mueller location. Registration is happening now for Members and opens on January 22 for the public!

Campers are divided by age groups in order to provide the most developmentally appropriate environment for them to learn, grow and play. Naturally, as campers get older they tackle more complex challenges and materials. The three groups include: pre-K & kindergarten, 1st & 2nd graders, and 3rd – 5th graders. Pre-K and Kinder students can choose to attend either a part-day session or full day.

Spring Break Themes include:

Make It or Break It, prek-k; 1st-2nd; 3rd-5th
Learn to manipulate materials—and demolish fears of failure—through exploration stations, design challenges and movement activities. Kids use trial and error as they learn build up and tear down with intention and know-how.

— Level Up, 1st-2nd
Reverse engineer the best-loved games to discover what makes them so exciting, engaging and entertaining. Puzzle over strategy, collaboration, and chance to invent your own game!
