This summer camp for 3rd-5th graders empowers students to explore, innovate and create.
WonderLab Summer Program
WonderLab Summer Program Reimagined!
Because of the uncertain nature of when we will be able to return to campus, we are reimagining WonderLab 2020. In the spirit of innovation and creativity, we plan to offer a new Virtual WonderLab experience this summer instead!
Virtual WonderLab 2020
This summer we will offer two one-week, half-day virtual experiences for rising third through sixth grade MCDS students. Week 1 (June 15-19), we will create carnival activities. Week 2 (June 22-26), we will explore the interplay between science and art.
Each day we will host Zoom (whole group and small group) sessions to do some teaching and coaching. Each participant will receive a customized WonderLab “kit” with supplies and surprises that they will use throughout the session. In addition to hands-on activities and outdoor play “missions,” we will explore some programming/coding activities.
While the morning time will be dedicated to Virtual WonderLab 2020 (both on and off screens), we envision students doing independent work in the afternoons diving deeper into areas of our camp they become passionate or curious about. We will have a 5:1 teacher:student ratio with High School and College student associate teachers.
We are thrilled to announce that guest artist/comic book writer/Tapigami expert, Eben Burgoon (http://ebenburgoon.com/) will return to WonderLab and participate in Virtual WonderLab 2020.
Our hope is that Virtual WonderLab 2020 will provide students with an enriching and inspiring experience, allowing them to imagine, tinker and create while also getting exposed to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM). Most importantly we want WonderLabbers to have fun!
