School's Out Science Camps

When school is out, science camp is in!

Want us to come to your area? Let us know! We’ll set up shop in your community for a day (a week, or a month, or whenever school is out) and bring a robust STEAM education program for families seeking a quality out-of-school experience. Collaborate with Science Center staff to provide topics and themes to inform, engage, and entertain budding scientists.
