Summer Camps

Thank you for another FAB summer! Check back in early 2022 for information on 2022 Summer Camps. In the meantime, check out the photo albums from 2021 Summer Camps below.

Fab Lab summer camps are designed for students, by students. Each session runs Monday-Friday, 8:30am-12:30pm. Please select camp grade level based on the grade your child is entering in 2022-23 school year.

Questions? Call us at 941-840-4394 or email info@suncoastscience.org.

 

Explorers Camp for 2-3rd grade students

Explorers camps are all about purposeful play. Kids will have a blast playing and discovering new interests through hands on activities plus they'll make fun take home projects using Fab Lab equipment like laser and vinyl cutters.

 

CHEMISTRY
