Pima for Kids

Encourage your kids to have fun and make memories while learning. Our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) camps incorporate these concepts with Lego engineering, chemistry, physics, computer animation and more.

Our experienced instructors have the knowledge, creativity and skills to work with young people. There is something for everyone!

Pima for Kids (ages 4-12) and Teen Scene (ages 13-17) offers one-week camps in the Fall, Spring and Summer during school breaks with morning and afternoon sessions. We also offer weekend courses as well.

Other concepts will include special relativity (the Flash), conduction and convection (mutants and the weather), quantum mechanics (Kitty Pryde and the Flash), and materials science (superhero costumes). No previous knowledge of physics or superheroes is required. Offered in Marana and West Campus the week of June 26-30, Northwest campus June 19 -23 and East Campus July 10 - 14.
