Join scienceSeeds this summer for the best STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) camps Princeton has to offer. Most Princeton area technology camps use canned curriculum. At scienceSeeds we develop our own curriculum with your child in mind. We’ve been providing exciting science camps in the Princeton area since 2008. We know what gets kids excited and we are always developing new programs.

This year we are offering camps in electronics, robotics, drone programming, circuits, gears, water science, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and 3-D printing. Learn about the cycles of water, how to program a drone to land where you want, how to light up an LED, make a switch, make a light saber, or design and print your own ideas on a 3D printer.

In most of our camps your child goes home with something they’ve made and are excited about. Our staff is made up of scientists, technologists, and teachers who love getting kids excited about science, technology, and engineering. www.scienceseeds.com/science-steam-maker-programs/summer-camps-6to14/

Half-day and Full-day programs available
Ages 4-14
Early Drop Off and Late Pick Up available

Plant the seeds of science excitement while your child has a blast of STEAM.

At Fernbrook Farms, your kids might get a little dirty; to be honest, they’re going to get dirty for sure, but that’s what happens when kids are truly active and experience nature personally!  Our goal is that each child leaves our farm with a sixth sense, a sense of appreciation of the natural world, agriculture, and healthy lifestyles.   We engage kids with our farm animals and inspire exploration in our ecosystems, which lead to future stewardship for the environment.  Favorite activities include catching frogs at the pond, harvesting & cooking fresh vegetables from our children’s garden, exploring the creek for bugs & fossils, building shelters in our forests, and wishing the day wouldn’t come to an end!
We offer full-day (8:30 – 4) camp for 5-14 yr olds and partial day (11-12:30) for 3-5 yr olds. For the 12-14 year olds, overnight camping options are available.  Also, extended day and transportation options are available.
