At The Adler | Sign Up Now For Summer Science

Discover new worlds, engage in eye-opening experiments and play next to Lake Michigan this summer during an Adler Planetarium summer camp!

The Adler Planetarium offers a variety of unique summer day camp experiences for children ages 3 through 16. Young space and technology enthusiasts alike will have the opportunity to spend part of their summer exploring space, using telescopes, building rockets, seeing immersive sky shows, programming robots, exploring exhibits, launching high altitude balloons, and much, much more.

Adler's summer camps introduce kids, teens, and tweens to doing science while engaging their creativity. Children are invited to participate in these unique, memorable experiences during one or more summer camps at the Adler. Registration opens Tuesday.

Young Scientist Summer Program
Preschool age children learn about the skills of science exploration through participation in this fun, engaging summer camp designed to spark scientific curiosity. Activities during the week-long sessions integrate circle time, hands-on investigations, free exploration, snack, art and literacy connections while introducing young children to learning in a museum.

Mission Near-Space: A Team Experience to the Edge of Space!
If you choose to accept this mission, you will become part of a unique team of engineers and astronomers whose goal is to prepare, launch, track, and retrieve a scientific payload sent to the stratosphere aboard a high altitude balloon. The week ends with a showcase in which participants present their exploration results to family members.

Mini Camps: Astro Juniors, Explorers, & Investigators Camps
Do you have what it takes to travel through space? Join us for a two-day adventure as we explore the engineering challenges humans must face when traveling, working and living in space. What do our bodies need to live? How do we protect ourselves from the dangers of space? How do we communicate? Do hands-on experiments and activities from the perspective of an astronaut, experience Planet Explorers and other exhibits, see an immersive sky show, and much more!

Technology Camp: A Week of Geek!
Challenge yourself this summer! Campers will be engaged in the process of designing, building, testing and redesigning as they use Lego Robotics to overcome escalating challenges. Campers will also be exposed to creative design, documentation and presentation skills through the use of Sketch-Up 3D Modeling, video recording, and editing. Telescope viewing, lunch by Lake Michigan and cutting edge Sky Shows - all unique to the Adler - are the perfect setting for Tech Camp.

Summer Worlds Tour
Summer Worlds Tour offers a week of adventures in Chicago's premier museums for children entering kindergarten through fifth grade in the fall of 2016. Campers will explore engineering challenges of traveling in space at the Adler, discover games of ancient cultures at The Field Museum, and investigate underwater environments at the Shedd Aquarium. Activities include investigating exhibits, hands-on activities, creating original art projects, playing learning games, and having lunch along the shore of Lake Michigan.
