Avoiding the "summer slide"

Primary school gets out tomorrow. I know it is common for kids to have a "summer slide" where they forget a lot of what they've learned over the year. Recommend some fun math and science sites/projects/activities for elementary school age kids that will keep them refreshed and interested.

Reading, writing, arts and crafts, running around like an idiot...those I can do. What I'd like to find are some sites/activities/projects that an advanced 8 year old would find entertaining that reinforce math skills and science facts. Bonus if we can work in programming (which he's learning and loving), and/or robotics. He wants to build battlebots in the back yard. (And really, who doesn't?) Please, nothing that shoots fire. Or projectiles. Or needs to be nuked from space.
