Mad Science


From magnetic slime, to exploding geysers, to edible and scientific culinary creations! This camp transforms science into fun, interactive experiments and creations. Come experience unique, hands-on science experiences that are as entertaining as they are educational.

Tea & Etiquette

Please join Ms.Tronnier as we taste some delicious tea and treats from around the world. We will learn how to brew tea properly, learn how tea is made and learn proper tea etiquette.

Pixel Art

In Mrs. Huy’s Pixel Art Melty Bead class, you will use individual Perler beads to form patterns on a grid, to create pixel art. If you haven’t heard of Perler beads before, here’s the basic low-down: Perler beads, also called Hama beads (in Japan) or melty beads, are small plastic beads in various colors. They are arranged on a preset pegboard to form a design. Then, using an iron and wax paper, the beads are melted together to form a solid piece of plastic solidifying the design. These beads are an excellent way for students to create something that expresses their love for their favorite cartoon character, sports team, or even video game. While many students tend to use Perler beads to recreate their favorite pixel art, they also lend themselves beautifully to creative expression. I’ve seen students reinterpret other non-pixel images, create abstract art designs, and more. Pixel Art for the win!

Kidding Around Yoga

Kidding Around Yoga(KAY) is a style of teaching that was created by Haris “Harini” Lender, RYT 500. KAY includes ALL 5 branches of the Science of Yoga in a very clear and organized class.

As a certified Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) teacher, I have the honor of sharing yoga and meditation with children of all ages. We use our own music produced by our founder, Ms. Haris Lender, games, as well as other tools and activities to help children focus their minds and stretch their bodies, all while having loads of fun. It is a great tool in helping children to regulate their emotions and manage stressful situations, inside and outside of the classroom.

Yoga and meditation has been considered for a long time as a wonderful means of stress management. KAY uses a system based on the classical study of yoga and transforms it into an experience for children to both introduce them to yoga as well as inspire them to develop a practice and give them tools to take into adulthood.

The methods we use in a KAY class are insanely creative and will keep your child practicing yoga for years to come! Singing, dancing, massaging, jogging and storytelling are just a few of the techniques we use, but the possibilities are endless.

We will also take this opportunity to practice table manners and etiquette.
