Welcome to Hognerds School of SCIENCE and Wizardry, where the wonders of magic are demystified through the power of SCIENCE! Join us for an enchanting journey into the realms of scientific discovery and exploration at our Wizard Science summer camp.

Experience the thrill of wielding light and electricity as you craft your own light-up wands using circuits. Delve into the secrets of bubbling potions that you can hold in your hand and witness the mesmerizing transformations of chemistry with acids and bases that change color before your eyes.

Prepare for excitement as you tackle the challenge of creating “exploding” toothpaste and marvel at the art of levitation with our levitating orbs. But fear not, for Defense Against the Dark Arts (AKA safety) will always be our top priority!

And of course, what would a wizard be without their robes? Dress up in authentic wizard robes as you immerse yourself in the magical world of science.

At Wizard Science camp, it’s not magic—it’s SCIENCE!

This is the PERFECT class for any nerds who love fantasy and magic. Anyone who wants to learn about science within the context of spells and use chemistry and physics to do things that seem like magic will have a blast in Wizard Science.

Nerds in this class will put together tons of fun experiments! We’ll make things like levitating orbs, light up wands, bubbles that you can hold, ink that appears and disappears, and exploding toothpaste! Nerds will also have the opportunity to design and build their very own wooden wand, the essential tool for every witch and warlock.

Nerds in this class learn a bunch about chemistry and physics through the activities that we do in class. We touch on topics like states of matter, density, electric charge, and more! We’ll use ingredients like Horn of Bicorn (baking soda) to make awesome chemical reactions! We’ll also use a handful of spells to help us along the way ;).

Our Big Nerds classes for grades 4-7, are engaging and exciting and vary greatly in content and structure, but in some form there is always direct instruction from the teacher, guided practice, and independent or small group work with help and support from peers and staff. We usually begin the day with a team building activity and move into our first lesson. Next is a hands-on activity or project. Halfway through the class, kids will take a brief recess and snack break. A second lesson follows break and the kids will do another project/activity or continue one they were working on. It’s always fun and engaging with hands-on projects!

SUMMER & BREAK CLASSES ONLY: Class is 3hrs each day, so bring a snack for break time. Also, bring your own refillable water bottle. Don’t have one? Add our Nerding water bottle to your order and pick up on first day of class!


Your nerd will build and discover like these nerds have.
