Summer Courses

Plan a summer of discovery! From the aspiring biologist to the future technology wizard, every science-minded child will have something to look forward to this summer at the Museum of Science. Students entering grades 1 – 8 can choose from a variety of hands-on, week-long courses with topics ranging from bugs to robots to food chemistry, and more.


Courses begin on the Monday of each week, July 6 – August 14. Each course is five days in length.

Choose from morning, afternoon, or day-long programs, or mix and match to build a summer filled with inspirational learning. For busy families, we offer early-morning drop-off and late-stay options.
