Adventures in Science
The Adventures in Science (AiS) program introduces children to a wide variety of scientific disciplines through thought-provoking, hands-on investigations and interactive tours of Museum exhibits.
The three-day workshops and week-long day camps or institutes explore topics such as astrophysics, human evolution, robot design, frogs and extreme mammals. Children can study constellations by star-gazing, examine the tools and cave art of our hominid ancestors, and much more in these exciting, inquiry-based programs.
Schedules and grade level can be found by selecting the workshop or camp you are interested in.
