Camp Descriptions

Each day during SCIENCE CAMP, High Touch High Tech campers will enjoy 270 minutes of degreed professional instructor-led hands-on SCIENCE and STEM activities. Science, Technology, and Engineering come alive as we excite your child with our unique form of “edutainment” the HTHT way! Find the location nearest you from our six Metro Atlanta cities: Atlanta (Morningside), Roswell, Marietta, Lawrenceville, Vinings, Decatur, and Cumming.  Lead instructors are CPR and First Aide certified. A typical day at camp consists of two experiment blocks, a Tech Lab block, free exploration, outdoor recess (weather permitting) and a lunch and snack time. We provide a snack but ask that you send your child with a non-refrigerated lunch. For their safety, please send your child to camp in closed-toed shoes.  Depending on enrollment, campers will be grouped according to age and ability. Since 1994, High Touch High Tech of Greater Atlanta has been the leading hands-on science experience in Metro-Atlanta. From in-school experiences to summer camps and birthday parties, High Touch High Tech is dedicated to promoting scientific and technologic literacy among today’s children.

Rising 1st/2nd Grade

Perfect for the BUDDING SCIENTIST! 

Let us transform your camper into all kinds of scientists.  Flashlight fun, LENSES, color SHADOWS, rainbow making PRISMS, and colorful BUTTERFLY chromatography chemistry are just the start of Light and Color Day.   Round out the fun as we watch a LASER LIGHT SHOW.  Have a “blast” getting wet launching WATER ROCKETS and exploring outer space during Space Day. Make and take home your SOLAR SYSTEM MODEL NECKLACE.  Chemistry Day has all the fizzy and messy fun you can handle beginning with making homemade chocolate ICE CREAM and ending with a GEYSER EXPLOSION.  Make SCIENCE PUTTY to take home, MIX CHEMICALS, and even use real lab tools.  Meet our LIVE BUGS during Living Things Day, touch if you dare!  Use real MICROSCOPES to see why things are alive.  Get GROSSED OUT as we examine real cow HEARTS and KIDNEYS, and sheep BRAINS and EYEBALLS.  “Erupt’ with excitement as volcanoes EXPLODE and GEODES break during Earth Day. Mine for GEMSTONES and keep your collection! Have fossil fun with land and sea fossils, make fossil impressions and even take home your favorite real SHARK TOOTH FOSSIL.

Visit our TECH LAB  every day for  a hands-on programming experience using a variety of robots.  Use our laptops and Lego ™ Kits to build Lego™  Mindstorm/EV3 robots and try to meet our CHALLENGE!  PROGRAM with Wonder Workshop’s Dash and Dot ™ robots, use educational tablet apps and have fun in a realm of VIRTUAL REALITY with our VR headsets.  Get “energized” by LEARNING to build an electrical circuit you can bring home and DESIGN a video game with Apple iPads™ and Bloxels ™.

Rising 3rd/4th Grade

The basics of AERODYNAMICS, PHYSICS, ANATOMY, GEOLOGY AND CHEMISTRY will be discovered in this exciting week of hands-on experiments and challenges. MARBLE HOSE ROLLER COASTERS and LEGO RACER FRICTION CHALLENGES make physics come alive as you RACE your friends to the finish line. Observe how 3D COMPUTER GRAPHCS make discovering parts of the body a NEW AND EXCITING experience. Take it to the next level and ACTUALLY TOUCH REAL COW HEARTS, KIDNEYS, STOMACHS, SHEEP BRAINS, and EYEBALLS.  ANALYZE BLOOD, organ, and bone tissue under the MICROSCOPE. Your camp classroom will take flight with an aeronautics challenge using multiple PAPER AIRPLANE DESIGN choices. Does air resistance, force, motion, and design affect WHOSE PLANE WILL FLY THE FARTHEST? Test the three forces affecting flight as you fly and take home your own TOP GUN GLIDER. Chemistry anyone? Can you SEPARATE COLORS into their different CHEMICALS? You can at camp! “ERUPT” with laughter as you witness how the temperature of chemicals and shape of container effect CHEMICAL REACTIONS. Experiment with pH and density as you make CHEMICAL TOWERS AND FLOATING CARROTS. Use your knowledge of friction, gravity and angles in our green zone CHALLENGE. Rocks, minerals, and fossils round out the week as you make TECTONIC PUTTY and observe SUGAR CUBE EROSION. Classify and keep some of your favorite GEMSTONES.

Rising 5th/6th Grade

Emphasizing FUN DISCOVERY campers will investigate AERODYNAMICS, PHYSICS, ANATOMY, GEOLOGY, and CHEMISTRY in this exciting week of hands-on experiments and challenges. MARBLE HOSE ROLLER COASTERS and LEGO RACER FRICTION CHALLENGES make physics come alive as you Engineer solutions to recreational and everyday problems. Observe how 3D COMPUTER GRAPHCS make discovering parts of the body seemingly come alive. Take it to the next level and ACTUALLY TOUCH REAL COW HEARTS, KIDNEYS, STOMACHS, SHEEP BRAINS, and EYEBALLS.  Build a human skeleton and ANALYZE BLOOD, organ, and bone tissue under the MICROSCOPE. Experience your camp classroom take flight with an aeronautics challenge using multiple PAPER GLIDER and ROCKET DESIGN choices. What variables of design affect WHOSE ROCKET WILL FLY THE FARTHEST? Identify the three forces affecting a glider as you test and take home your own TOP GUN GLIDER. Chemistry anyone? Can you identify the chemical ingredients of a mixture by separating the ingredients by color? You can at camp! “ERUPT” with laughter as you witness how temperature of chemicals and shape of container effect the CHEMICAL REACTIONS. Experiment with pH and density as you make CHEMICAL TOWERS AND FLOATING CARROTS. Use your knowledge to alter the angle of trajectory and SHOOT RUBBER BAND CANNONS. Rocks, minerals, and fossils round out the week as you study SUGAR CUBE EROSION and make TECTONIC PUTTY. Classify and keep some of your favorite GEMSTONES.
