Explore science through hands-on fun!

This Fall, we've expanded our programs to support families as we navigate the 2020-2021 school year together. All in-person programs will be limited to groups of 10 participants and mask-wearing is required to attend. We are taking many precautions to maintain social distancing and keep participants safe.
