July: Rainbow Glasses
Summer's here and the sun is bright, so come make a special pair of shades. Instead of blocking the sun, these spectacular spectacles use the light to make outrageous rainbows!
August: Lava Lamps
Lava lamps are known for the distinctive way big blobs rise and fall in a clear liquid. Use household chemicals to recreate this effect in a burbling color mixture.

Space still available in some camps!
Looking for something fun and educational for your kids this summer? We still have space available in some of our summer camps. Mix up some goo, launch a rocket, design a house with working lights, and fling marshmallows with a catapult you build yourself!
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.
Works' camps are very popular, and some of them are already full.
Be sure to reserve your spot today. For descriptions of all the camps,
prices, and registration information, click here.
