She’ll join a research team and unlock clues to uncover nature’s blueprints, which hold the key to superhuman senses. To build essential STEM skills, she’ll develop bionic gadgets and explore sensory illusions. She’ll even shoot information down zip-lines to a bionic brain in a final challenge to decode a mega-sensory mix-up. Amplify your child’s senses in this sensational module!

Your child will create morphing vehicles that operate on land, in the air and underwater in our exciting Super Go™ module.

Your child will build ramps, tunnels and high-speed STEM skills that put him on the fast track to success. Watch the first glimpse into a small part of the fun your child will have this summer.
