2021 Summer Camp

Exploding Science Robotics Camp

June 21-25 |  10:00am – 4:00pm
held at 7040 Stapoint Ct
Winter Park FL 32792
$225.00 (multiple child discount, $200 for each additional child)

Science and robotics go hand in hand in our Exploding Science robotics camp. Students form Lego Robotic teams to learn simple programming, strategy, and design to complete missions for a friendly end-week competition. Exciting hands-on science experiments and team-building games round out the fun. This camp is geared toward 8-12 yrs.

Campers are to bring their own lunch, beverage, and snack. This camp will be held indoors and outdoors. Unless otherwise noted, masks will be required for the indoors portion.

Space is limited, so book now!

Exploding Bacon Summer Camps

2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017 | 2018 | 2019 | 2021

Since starting Exploding Science Summer Camps in the summer of 2012, we have expanded the FIRST Lego League team members within Exploding Bacon, St. Luke’s Presbyterian School, and other areas in Orange and Seminole Counties. Our summer camps were built on the basis of our Exploding Science program and FIRST LEGO League Robotics.

Exploding Science is a series of hands on science experiments covering the topics of Physics, Chemistry, Simple Machines, and Alternative Energy. As a result of our LEGO Robotics Summer Camps, Exploding Science now covers Engineering concepts too.

Our team’s students serve as mentors, develop, and present the lessons on the science experiments and FIRST LEGO League robotics. Bacon students learned the challenge of being a mentor: standing back, guiding students, encouraging, and not ‘doing’ for them. They learned the value of mentoring younger students as well as the value of the restraint shown by their FIRST Robotics Competition mentors and gained skills they will use for a lifetime. It was a truly rewarding experience for both the camp students and our team.
