Maker’s Mania 


Daring Designs 2021

Do you like to make things with your own hands and to push your imagination to its limit? Design incredible things this summer when you construct with thousands of Legos and K’nex, climb inside life-size forts, test marble roller coasters, and defy gravity with huge Jenga sets. Do you love Hex Bugs as much as we do? Build a habitat and take home your very own Hex Bug! 


Maker’s Mania 2021

STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics) takes center stage when you design a working flashlight, create a life-size shadow puppet theatre, construct a movable-hinge creature, and use art to program robots! Click here to find out more about Maker culture, Decatur Makers and the Atlanta Maker Faire. 


Radical Reactions 2021 

Do you love mixing chemicals and making things fly across the room? Who doesn’t? This camp is all about producing chemical chaos and exploring eye-popping physics. Mix chemicals to make a lava lamp, fling a Hex Bug payload using a catapult, power up a mouth rocket, and concoct slime. This week always ends with homemade ice cream!


Food Fun 2021

This is a camp where you CAN play with your food! Blend homemade butter, mix homemade soda, conduct red cabbage chemistry, assemble gumdrop molecules, construct marshmallow towers, create colorful milk magic, and build electrical circuits from dough. Some labs are edible and some are not, but they all are food fun! Nut-free and gluten-free options will be available; list all food allergies in your registration. 


Who we are:

The Science of Fun is a highly engaging, STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics) camp and afternoon enrichment company near downtown Decatur, Georgia. We encourage curiosity, experimentation, risk-taking and a growth mindset in our elementary-age campers. We believe that campers need hearty outdoor play, solid interpersonal coaching and engaging hands-on STEM activities such as slime, rockets and roller coasters. We believe in the inherent value of young children and truly enjoy their company. We know how to strike just the right balance between structure and fun. Our camps are led by Instructors and Supervisors who are experienced, highly-educated adults! The Science of Fun is owned by Kris Webb, a former City Schools of Decatur teacher and co-founder of the non-profit Sudbury School of Atlanta.


What we do:

We have four recurring summer themes with different and distinct activities each summer: Daring Designs, Radical Reactions, Maker’s Mania, and Food Fun. Campers not repeat the prior year’s activities. Activities include STEM topics, matter investigations, chemical reactions, physics explorations, engineering challenges, STEAM (STEM + Art) and Tinker Labs. Many projects are taken home by campers. All camps are ideal for boys and girls, repeat campers and first-time campers. Activities will be tailored to individual needs in flexible groups. Descriptions of each theme are located under the schedule, below. Our camps feel like a Science birthday party!
