Helping kids fall in love with science since 2011!
Award winning science camp created to inspire and empower kids as they explore all the beauty science has to offer while broadening their knowledge of how the world works through hands-on experiences and clever break downs of complex scientific concepts.
What We Offer
By creating a hands-on, inviting, interesting science ecosystem, we provide the blueprint for learning, offering kids access to science-rich learning environments developing important scientific and social skills and engagement. The full science immersion camp we offer with its strong science ecosystem feature dynamic collaborations among our instructors, kids, and IKS curriculum cultivating unique and purposeful experiences for kids ages 5yrs.-11yrs.
I Know Science was developed to offer parents an innovative and fun set of enriching options for their children. Creating a progressive environment where positive experiences flourish while building on intellectual development and 21st century science skills was the vision. Hence, the IKS Science Camp serves as the fuel to the initiative enabling the success of our kids’ remarkable learning all the while having a fun.
Our team is composed of carefully selected and talented instructors. They are local university students, high school seniors, and recent college graduates. Their impressive resumes and countless accomplishments in their young lives are a glimpse at their true gifts which they share with the kids every day. Our lab instructors have strong science backgrounds, excellent teaching skills, and most importantly a passion for the field combined with a kindness seen in their delivery of content. They are the best role models for our kids. The IKS team of lab instructors is the heart of the program and one of the main reasons our scientists love coming to our Science Camp.
The comprehensive IKS curriculum is a one-of-a kind collection of age appropriate labs with an unequivocal focus on scientific skills, breakdown of scientific concepts, and maximum child engagement. The unique selection of labs combined with the delivery using the IKS approach is the pathway to learning by doing. Kids are exposed to, explore & learn all areas in science through meaningful and guided experiments and purposeful activities.
A Typical Day
A traditional day in our Science Camp is broken up into content blocks assuring the maximum science immersion experience. Daily, our budding scientists start with whole group games, followed by a morning of EXPERIMENTS exploring all areas in science (biology, chemistry, environmental science, physics, zoology, meteorology, and so many others) & ENGINEERING/BUILDING challenges, followed by ROBOTICS, & PROGRAMMING. The IKS curriculum combined with the excellence of the instructional staff allow kids to walk away on a weekly basis having had an experience unlike any other. The program is fascinating, the lab instructors captivate kids’ engagement, and the experience overall is phenomenal!
