A little about what we do:

Our camps provide real engineering, science, and tech knowledge while students engage in all hands-on learning. We keep the class size small with two teachers in order to provide as much individual attention and learning as possible. Please feel free to contact Sarah anytime with questions: 724-243-2463


Below you'll find just a few examples of the hands-on challenges our students will participate in during this camp. 

Stable tower challenge: We learn how architects design buildings to withstand forces such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and earthquakes. Hands-on challenge: How tall can you build a tower using only a specific set of materials? Then, how stable can you make it? Will it withstand outside forces?

Learning skills: stability, center of gravity, measurement, civil engineering.

Build-A-Barge: We learn how floating vessels are able to carry and move large loads without sinking. Hands-on challenge: Build a boat that moves using the power of our waterproof robotics. Then, how much weight can it hold while pulling the load across a pool before it sinks? Now, race your boat! Who can move the fastest across the water?

Learning skills: properties of buoyant materials, propulsion.

Gigantic Rube Goldberg Machine: We learn what a Rube Goldberg machine is and why they are so awesome yet ridiculous. As a team, we will build a giant, room-sized Rube Goldberg machine containing many simple machines including pulleys, levers, ramps, and more. Will we be able to make our machine complete a balloon popping task?

Learning skills: simple machines, physics, collaboration and teamwork.


Q: Where is camp located?

A: In our own building at 407 Northgate Drive in Warrendale 15090. Our building is air conditioned and we spend 95% of our time indoors with a few quick trips outside for the messier projects.

Q: What should we bring to camp?

A. Please bring a lunch and a water bottle (or other drink). If we have a child in camp with an airborne food allergy, we may call you to ask if you will not pack certain items. Your child may bring their cell phone to camp, but we will ask that they leave it in their cubby while we are learning. 

Q: Who will be my child's teachers?

A: Sarah Ezolt and Nicolai Ezolt will be your child's teachers for every day of every camp this summer. We are always happy to talk to you before camp and answer any questions you may have. 

Q: What if my child has an allergy, special needs, etc?

A: When you call to register, we will discuss your child's specific learning and health needs. Sarah is a mom of three children and has a lot of experience with all types of needs. We want your child to be as safe and happy as possible so that they can learn and enjoy camp. 

Q: Do I need to walk my child into camp every morning? Do I need to come in to pick up my child after camp?

A: Please walk your child into camp on Monday morning so you can sign paperwork. After Monday, you may send your child into the building anytime between 8:50am-9am. Please come in to the building at pickup time. Camp ends at 1pm and you may pick up anytime between 1pm-1:10pm.

Q: What is your cancellation policy?

A: You can cancel for a full refund before May 15th. After May 15th, you can cancel for a 50% refund. No refunds after the first day of camp.

Q: How do I register?

A: We do registration over the phone. Please call Sarah at 724-243-2463 for all questions and registration.

Q. What forms of payment do you take?

A. You can pay for camp using credit card or check.

Q: Do you have a scholarship application?

A: Yes! We offer limited financial need based scholarships. Please call to inquire.

Q: Do you have a waiting list?

A: Yes. Because we keep our camp sizes small, they fill quickly. If camp is full we are able to add you to our waiting list. If we have a cancellation or if we open a new week of camp, we will call you.
