Travel back in time with us as we explore the scientific beliefs and engineering feats of the Middle Ages!  From the "magic" of alchemy to the technology of drawbridges and trebuchets, we will experience all things Medieval science by building castles, mixing potions, and more!

In Medieval Mayhem, campers will: 

• Construct a castle and catapult and see if their constructions can withstand a siege!

• Build their own suit of armor and study the science behind medieval weapons and the art of blacksmithing.

• Explore medieval inventions that we still use today, from simple machines to time-telling devices and even paper money!

• Experiment with the medieval science of alchemy by turning pennies into "gold", mixing potions, and creating explosions.

• Discover medieval myths and legends by studying constellations and build their own telescope like Galileo to take home. 

Participants must bring their own nut-free lunch and snack.  A complimentary pizza lunch will be provided on the last day of the camp. 

This is a drop-off program. Participants and one caregiver are invited to explore the Lab after camp hours free of charge. Additional family members may purchase their General Admission ticket at the door or in advance. Children must be accompanied by an adult while enjoying the Lab exhibit areas.

Member discounts are applied at checkout.
