Digital Education Program Guide

Because we value safety as much as we value education, all digital lessons are delivered live through a secure platform, allowing for an interactive environment where participants can actively engage. To support continued learning, each program comes with a participant guide including information about materials needed and extension activities.

Amazing Science Demonstrations

Let us put on a live science demonstration for your group. These live, 30-minute shows can be facilitated at your location, and are recommended for up to 100 people ages 5 and up.


Makerspace programming offers students amazing hands-on experiences where they can expect to tinker, make, invent and collaborate. Our experienced staff will lead your group.

Astronomy and Space Science

Give your students the chance to explore the planets of the Solar System or other galaxies in the universe. Investigate planetary surfaces, build a space probe out of recycled materials, conduct research on other planets, or bring the stars and constellations indoors with our portable planetarium.

Paleontology and Earth Sciences

Explore the history of the Earth and the creatures that roamed its surface, both past and present. From dinosaurs and fossils to rocks, minerals and earthquakes, we have the program for your group. We can even create a fossil preparation lab experience in your own classroom.

Biology and Life Science

Students will find out what makes humans and other organisms tick as they explore the mysteries of life. Introduce your group to the world of DNA, examine the functions of multiple organ systems, and more.

Physical Science

Explore fascinating physical science topics using our hands-on, experiential learning activities. Students will learn about the states of matter, as well as physics and architecture.

Early Childhood and Early Elementary Education

Let the Science Center help ignite an interest of science in your young learners. Children can build a house using reclaimed materials, learn about the senses, feel the force of magnets and get creative with electricity.

School Field Trips

For the 2020-2021 school year, the Science Center is offering digital experiences for school groups in lieu of traditional field trips. For more information please view our Groups and Field Trips information.
