The Works' summer camps are ideal for girls and boys going into kindergarten through grade 7 who love to explore, discover, design and build.  Campers have fun and learn how things work with hands-on projects in many areas of science and engineering.

The Works' camps are very popular, and many of them fill early.  Be sure to reserve your spot today.  For descriptions of all the camps, prices, and registration information, click here.

Have You Seen This Yet?

Use the sturdy wooden pieces to create tracks for a marble to zip down.  You can make the marble zoom, zig zag and jump.  Can you figure out how to use the marble to ring a bell?

The marble run is on permanent display at The Works.  So come on down, and see what you can do!
