Summer STEM Club in The Lab

A Different Experiment Every Day, Prizes and More!
Daily, 10:30am-4:30pm

Every day is a new adventure with Summer STEM Club! Join our team in The Lab for a different experiment each day as we explore biology, astronomy, engineering and more. Grab a punch card during your visit and collect a stamp for each experiment you complete. For every five stamps collected you’ll receive a prize! Stop by once a week, once a month or even once a day and join us as we question, test, create and build our way through the summer. Activities suitable for all ages.

Download daily activity schedule here.

Wednesdays, 2:30pm and 3:30 pm

Explore special science demonstrations revealing reasons why liquid nitrogen is so cool then finish with a sweet treat (Ice Cream anyone?) Super Science Shows are free with admission. Tickets are available at the front desk on a first come, first served basis.

Daily, 11:30 am and 2:30 pm

See the difference a seatbelt and booster seat make for passenger safety with this exciting simulated crash. Watch the effects of a car crash on a dummy in a simulated car interior and explore crash test videos in slow motion.

Grab a pair of safety goggles and dive into a hands-on experiment! Engage with our team of volunteers as you ask questions, make observations, and explore biology, chemistry, engineering, and more!

The Lab is open 10:30am - 4:30pm daily. Lab themes and experiments change weekly during the school year and daily during the summer and some holidays.  View the daily experiment schedule.
