Camps and Programs
So many ways to start discovering the scientist in all of us
For families: At the Museum
For families: Online & anywhere
Our camps are designed by our year-round staff to balance the excitement of first discovery and the satisfaction of lasting learning. Campers explore nature, animal life, creativity, problem-solving, and scientific thinking while making new friends and having fun at the Museum.
We offer weekday classes for families with elementary and middle school students. These classes foster curiosity in the world around us and the use of science as a tool for exploring that world. Our experienced educators use the Museum’s 84-acres of indoor and outdoor learning environments as a platform for inquiry-based and project-oriented activities.
We brought The Lab online, with experiments you can do at home and LIVE streaming sessions with our facilitators. Every Tuesday at 4pm, we’ll host a 30-minute Lab livestream where we can do an experiment together!
Life and Science at Home
Online digital content to help families learn, ask questions, and discover science in exciting new ways. We provide everything you need to discover the scientist in all of us at home.
Field trips & group visits
Whether you’re a school group, a summer camp, a team, a scout troop, or a large gathering of friends and family, a visit to the Museum launches visitors into a universe of nature exploration and science learning.
Our workshops, designed and facilitated by our team of expert educators, invite children and their parents or caregivers to fun, challenging, interactive activities to develop experience with many different tools, materials, and the natural world.
