Note to Parents
The projects will be supervised by our trained youth and adult staff. Please be prompt in picking up your children after the event. Most of our spring and summer Super Science Saturdays take place outdoors so please have your child dress accordingly.
How Can I Join the Club?
It's easy. You can just show up for the daily cost or sign up for a whole month at a time.
Do I Have to Come to Every Class?
No. The amount of time you attend is entirely up to your personal interest. You can check our monthly topics (below), find the ones that interest you, and sign up accordingly.
Studying a specific topic for a certain period of time is sometimes referred to as a unit study. Each week students work on a science lesson and take-home project related to the monthly topic/unit study.
*Saturdays falling on holidays or special events at the museum will be cancelled. A cancellation notice will be posted on the museum's website when days like this occur.
