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: Roswell, Marietta, Lawrenceville, Dunwoody, Vinings, 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. Our youngest campers will be with the same instructors all day.  Our older campers will rotate classes with different instructors much like going to specials at school.  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!  Join us for Alphabet Soup Science!  From Air pressure to Zeppelins, the alphabet is our guide for FUN science experiments!  Can you make a magnet using electricity?  Can you race a water droplet?  You can at Science Camp!  Build your very own CATAPULT to take home. Gasp as you watch a 20 foot GEYSER erupt in the air. Test your strength against our suction cups, and get “electrified” as we experiment with electrical circuits. Have a BLAST launching water rockets, digging for dinosaurs, making F5 tornadoes, and exploring with magnets.  Dip your hands in some OOBLECK chemistry, have fun with parachutes, X-rays, and more!  Conduct some COOL experiments with heat by shining flashlights on radiometers, make and take home a UV color changing wrist band, and even make colors change using the heat from your hand! Activities with life, physical, and earth science will keep small hands busy all week long.  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 ™ WeDo robots.   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 even DESIGN a video game with Apple iPads™ and Bloxels ™.

Rising 3rd/4th Grade

Chemistry, Biology, Ecology, Astronomy and Engineering come alive at X-Treme Science Camp! Do you see what I see?  Have fun with OPTICAL ILLUSIONS, learn eye anatomy, and even touch a real eyeball!  Discover CSI as you learn how real DETECTIVES work to solve crimes by ANALYZING fibers under microscopes. See how magnetic finger print powder is used to dust for fingerprints, and discover how hard it is to match shoe prints. Become a DIGITAL FORENSIC ARTIST as you create suspect’s sketches using FACES software and use facial recognition see how good a witness YOU would make.  Excite the CHEMIST in you as you observe how dry ice can go directly from solid to a gas, grow bluing crystals, increase the volume of solids by adding liquids, and use chemical chromatography to separate colors of candy dye. Is it MAGIC or SCIENCE? Make fog in a bottle appear, disappear then reappear. Like magic, can you blow up an 8 foot long bag with one breath? You can at camp! Our ENGINEERS will use their newly found skills to change the angle of trajectory shooting rubber band cannons at targets (not friends J), build bridges, and test cup stacking skills against our gas blaster. Explore the wonders of SPACE using telescopes, star finders, and sundials. Get “ENERGIZED” when energy is the HOT topic as you experiment with electrical circuits, conductors and insulators, radiometers and thermometers. Become a WILDLIFE ECOLOGIST as we dissect owl pellets and even take home the bones! Don’t forget HTHT always lets you become the human launch pad for WATER ROCKETS to cool you off from the hot summer days. 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 5th/6th Grade

Emphasizing FUN DISCOVERY campers will investigate S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math).  Biology, Engineering, Chemistry, and Forensic Science come alive at X-treme Science Camp.  Is it magic or science? Make fog in a bottle appear, DISAPPEAR then reappear. LIKE MAGIC, can you blow up an 8 foot long bag with one breath? YOU can at camp! Gape in amazement as your instructor collapses a 5 gallon water bottle using Chemistry. Discover CSI as you become a DIGITAL FORENSIC ARTIST and create suspect’s sketches using FACES software. Use facial recognition to see if YOU would make a good witness.  Learn how real DETECTIVES solve crimes by ANALYZING fibers under a microscope. See how magnetic finger print powder is used to dust fingerprints, and discover how hard it is to match shoe prints. Explore how DNA is unique to all living organisms, and even EXTRACT DNA from a banana. EXPERIMENT with the “A” and “T” in S.T.E.A.M, as you work with your friends to create a short STOP MOTION ANIMATION FILM using clay, tablet apps, and cameras. Excite the CHEMIST in you as you observe how solids can go directly to gas safely experimenting with dry ice. Grow bluing CRYSTALS, increase the volume of solids by adding liquids, and use chemical chromatography to separate colors of candy dye. Our ENGINEERS will use their skills to alter the angle of trajectory by shooting RUBBER BAND CANNONS at targets (not your friends J).  You will construct BRIDGES, and test cup stacking skills against our gas blaster. Do you see what I see?  Have fun with OPTICAL ILLUSIONS, learn eye anatomy and even touch a real eyeball!  Don’t forget HTHT always lets you become the human launch pad for WATER ROCKETS to cool you off from the hot summer days. Visit our TECH LAB  every day for  a hands-on programming experience using a variety of ROBOTS.  Can you use laptops and Lego ™ Kits to BUILD Lego ™ Mindstorm/EV3 robots and 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 ™.
