During each session, students ages 5-9 will come together to explore a science topic in depth through hands-on lessons designed to spark their curiosity and ignite an interest in STEM. Our informal science education environment encourages students to ask questions, gain experience using scientific tools and make connections, both intellectual and social, through engaging experiments and activities.
Each afterschool session is four-weeks in duration with lessons occurring on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in our classrooms, with an option to add-on child care until 6:00 p.m. All sessions are facilitated by our Museum Educators and include all materials and supplies related to the lesson.
Cost: $135 for non-members/$115 for members per four-week session per child
Additional hour of childcare is $90 per child per four-week session
*Members must be logged in to receive the member rate.
