Our fleet of seven vans can bring professional STEM educators to locations around New England. They teach over thirty types of programs to more than 100,000 people each year.
School Programs are offered from September-June and are only available for school groups. They have grade-specific content that builds on the Next Generation Science Standards, and come in a variety of formats including presentations, hands-on workshops, and immersive experiences. To get a summary of the programs we offer to schools, including logistical and price information, check out our School Catalog. There is limited Funding available for schools with financial need.
We also have more generalized programs offered in July and August for libraries, camps, youth groups, and other kinds of out-of-school-time environments. These programs also come in a variety of formats. Most are appropriate for a wide range of school-age children; we also have two new workshops designed specifically for preschoolers 2.9-5 years. To get a summary of these programs, including logistical and price information, check out our Library/Camp Catalog. There is limited Funding available for sites with financial need.
Finally, we have the ability to visit a limited number of weekend community events each year with Drop-in Station activity programs. There is limited Funding available for sites with financial need.
The tiles below lead to preview PDFs that feature slideshows of what we do in each individual program, as well as extensive logistical and price information. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-589-0354 with questions, or to make a reservation.
