Earth Science Program for Teens

Jumpstart your brain before the school year starts with a one-week experience for high school students to explore Earth Science at the Museum! Work with science experts and get familiar with the amazing specimens in the Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth. With fun activities and exhibit investigations, you'll learn geology, meet other teens, and close out the summer with science.
