Live on the Hill - Mad Science in the Park

Hosted By Barracks Row Main Street

In Partnership with Barracks Row Main Street, the Department of Parks and Recreation & the Office of Councilmember Charles Allen

Mad Science Camps offer hands-on discovery and exploration of scientific principles. Your child will be able to touch, see, hear, and smell what science is really all about! Campers create a variety of take-home projects while exploring how science affects the world around us.
