MagLab Camps TESLA

We offer two unique camps for boys and girls (rising 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th graders) who work collaboratively on engineering projects, participate in field trips, and interact with scientists and engineers.

During their experience, campers can expect:

  • An exposure to a wide range of physics disciplines
  • Indoor experiences (labs, lectures, demonstrations)
  • Field trips to increase scientific knowledge
  • Interactions with local scientists and science educators

Dear summer camp applicant,

Due to COVID-19 we are cancelling our 2020 summer camps. We do not want to gather large groups unnecessarily and add more people to our spaces. All applicants to the camps will be informed by email. Please visit this webpage again in January of 2021 for more information or sign up for our Educator's Club to receive more updates.
