Classroom Activities & Workshops 

Due to the pandemic, we are not booking any group discovery areas. Limited Capacity, No Late Entry, etc.

Science City on the Road

Science City wants to be a part of your community or company event with our interactive and educational science programs. These demonstrations stimulate interest and teach basic science concepts. Instead of coming to the science center, our educators will travel to you.

How it Works

Program Options

Science City on the Road offers two types of programs:

01.

Classroom Workshops

Perfect for classroom-sized groups up to 30 participants.

Artbots

Recommended for Grade Levels 3 – 12

Robot Adventures

Recommended for Grade Levels 1 – 8

Participants will get to see first-hand how parts like motors and pulleys can work together to interact and move

Science Meets Literacy

Recommended for Grade Levels PK – 1

This program connects an early learning book with a science concept. Activities include multiple stations for hands-on experiences and learning. Topics include: Astonishing Air, Beginning Botanist, Blocks Measure Up, Busy Buzzing Bees, Discovering Shells, Feathered Friends, Magnificent Magnets, Rainy Weather, and Water Play
