Summer Program

Stay tuned for information about our new summer program called Summer Discovery.

IMG_6700The mission of MCDS Summer Discovery is to engage and captivate young people’s imaginations in project-based, hands-on experiences. Spending the summer on our inspiring campus and working in our Science laboratories and Technology Makerspace, participants will gain a conceptual understanding of how technology, science, and nature interrelate, experiencing all aspects of a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) education.

Participants will be placed in groups by incoming grade: K-2, 3-5, and 6-8.

Register for all 6 weeks or each week separately.

Participants can choose different course options within these weekly themed topics:

  • Week 1 (June 19-23): 3D Design & Printing
  • Week 2 (June 26-30): Programming/Coding
  • Week 3 (July 10-14): Animation
  • Week 4 (July 17-21): Game Design
  • Week 5 (July 24-28): Engineering & Robotics
  • Week 6 (July 31-Aug 4): Video Production


The full daily schedule includes a welcoming large group activity, project/class time, lunch, outdoor play and explore time, and gaming/activity time. Each session will end with participant awards and family showcase.

Registration begins in January. Stay tuned!
