What?!?!  Super Science Saturday ALL day ONCE a month?

Yes! Super Science Saturday is an all day, once a month, event for the whole family.  The day is filled with awesome hands-on learning opportunities that give every participant a full dose of that month's topic.  If you want a great inexpensive family day of learning and fun, this is definitely it!

How does it work?

Each month, a new topic is discovered throughout the day.  Using the month's schedule, you can choose what learning opportunities you would like to be a part of.  These schedules will be posted on our website each month.  There are still regular guided tours available at the bottom of each hour, as usual, with the last one of the day beginning at 3:30p.m.

Do I Have to Stay All Day?

You can decide to come anytime, pack a lunch and stay all day, or for only the parts you want to be involved in. 

What is the cost?

Each Super Science Saturday is considered one of our Special Events, and the admission price is $15 per person for the whole day.  This includes all learning activities, special guests, regular tours, and your complimentary zip line ride (when available and applicable). If you are a member, you receive a discounted price of $5. 


Please contact our Director, Jodie Brewer by email or by telephone at 330-665-DINO (3466).

Please Note:  

  • If for some reason Super Science Saturday needs to be cancelled for the day, a notice will be posted on the museum's website, Facebook page, and at the front desk.
  • Activities are for all ages.  Students in grades K-6th can be dropped off for the day's activities.  No food is provided.  Students staying all day must bring a packed lunch to be eaten during the supervised lunch break.  All younger children must be supervised at all times.
  • Super Science Saturdays are considered Special Events, therefore they are not included in any discount pricing except with membership.
  • Groups are able to participate in Super Science Saturdays, however, a group leader must call or email to give an RSVP, so that we are prepared for the extra participants.
  • Science can be messy and some of our activities may be messy too!  Please dress accordingly.
