Dinosaurs, Fossils & the Geology of Wisconsin!

June 10 – 14, 2024 | 10am – 2pm daily

Regular Registration

  • $250/student or $450/student for both weeks

Our first workshop taps the expertise of St. Ambrose history teacher (and active archeologist) Dr. Geoffrey Ludvik alongside program director Mr. Michael Kwas.

Students who attend Week One will learn about dinosaurs, their behavior, and how paleontologists have come to learn about them as well as other early life forms from the fossil record.

The group will spend a significant amount of time in the field, make a trek to the University of Wisconsin Geology Museum, and learn from the experts!

Physics for Kids

August 5 – 9, 2024 | 10am – 2pm daily

Regular Registration

  • $250/student or $450/student for both weeks

Finish off the summer with: Physics for Kids (and the young at heart)! The group will explore rockets, prisms, water guns, and other topics that are both fun AND can also teach us about science and math.

Led by our new science teacher, Mr. Aaron Roser, and program director Mr. Michael Kwas, this hands-on, activity-based workshop takes us outside to discover the marvelous forces of energy and motion in everyday items… but also in grand objects such as the moon, oceans, and the stars.

Come explore with us!
