School-Day Field Trips

School day field trips include: 

  • 1-hour of guided hands-on investigations aligned with NGSS and Amplify science standards -- activities  building electromagnets, dissecting squid, constructing motor toys, observing insect life cycles, and much more. 

  • 30-minutes of unstructured, free exploration time to discover our exhibits, animals, and our expansive collection of bones, instruments, magnets, insects, rocks, microscopes, and more.


After-school Programs

Build a homemade scooter! Explore dry ice! Wire a scribble-bot! Ride our homemade hovercraft! 

We partner with local community groups  such as YMCA, Boys & Girls Club, Jamestown and many more, to host students for after-school programs.  

Our after-school programs give students the chance to design their own projects and curriculum based on their own interests, and spend more time in the workshop outside of the school day. 



Drop-in! for Free!

Want to come visit, build and explore -- after-school or on the weekend? We have several (free!) drop-in programs for you to visit. During these programs, we open our doors to the community, where scientists of all ages can explore our space at no cost.
