At Adventure Science Center, we believe the best way to learn science is to experience it first-hand!

Our Family Science Labs offer opportunities for parents and homeschool teachers to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics in engaging, hands-on ways with their children and/or students. Each of our levels present new challenges with age-appropriate educational materials and activities to spark excitement in all participants.

Age Groups:

  • Explorers – ages 3 to 5
  • Investigators – ages 6 to 9
  • Researchers – ages 10 to 13

Cost:

Explorers & Investigators: $5 per child; Researchers: $7.50 per child.

Family Science Lab tickets must be purchased in conjunction with membership or general admission tickets. It is only necessary to purchase a lab ticket for any participating child; accompanying parent does not need to purchase a separate ticket.

After adding your child’s lab ticket to your cart, click the “General Admission” link in the green sidebar to add admission tickets to your cart.
