Science Discovery Lab

Are you ready to become a Mad Scientist? The Science Discovery Lab specialty is just the place for you!
Through the use of the current technology at Hofstra’s state-of-the-art science laboratories, participants will undergo a journey that covers much of the scientific spectrum with souvenirs to capture these memories from the very experiments themselves! This specialty is designed to hold the interest of enthusiastic “scientists” as well as campers who wish to test their potential in these exploratory subjects. Each year, different course material – with progressively more challenging investigation skills – is introduced.

The Science Discovery Lab program is for the camper who seeks scientific adventure beyond the typical school curriculum. A certified teacher leads the campers in hands-on, guided activities that will allow them to see, touch, hear, smell and taste how fun science can truly be.

This program may cover areas of science, such as biology, chemistry, physics, nutrition, and aerospace.

The Science Discovery Lab specialty not only challenges and nurtures the curious camper, but it also provides an opportunity to meet with children of similar interests and create friendships that will last a lifetime. .
