This summer camp for 3rd-5th graders empowers students to explore, innovate and create.
WonderLab Summer Program
Does your child like to explore the natural world, tinker and build, and use art and technology to communicate and illustrate ideas? WonderLab may be the perfect summer opportunity!
WonderLab is an two-week summer program -- for rising third and fourth and fifth grade students offering hands-on, inquiry-based projects and workshops in design thinking, science and engineering. MCDS collaborates with Laurel Dell, Short and Venetia Valley schools in San Rafael and Creative Arts Charter School in San Francisco. Students will grow perspective and partnership in a diverse, collaborative classroom through group project work and exploring individual passions. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are included. Bus transportation from San Francisco is also available for a fee.
Set in art studios on the MCDS campus, the program will introduce the skills of creativity that lead from imagination to innovation. Students will share their personal stories, learn to work as a team, articulate their own vision, learn the science of systems, and tackle a design challenge. Through play and asking questions, they will navigate the road from their natural curiosity to knowledge, with empathy for the world around them.
