Family Science Labs


After September's classes conclude, our Family Science Labs will be on a hiatus as we assess the program, find ways to make it even better, and create new experiences for your family to enjoy. 

Programs will resume Spring 2018.


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.


  • Explorers & Investigators: $5 per child 
  • Researchers: $7.50 per child



Investigators  |  Ages 6–9

Explorers  |  Ages 3–5

September 27 & 30
Researchers  |  Ages 10–13

Robotic Exploration

R2D2… WALL-E… Optimus Prime… what do all these characters have in common? They’re robots! Join us for a crash course on robotics while learning how they work.

Researchers  |  Robotics 101

How do robots work? What makes them different than and similar to people? Let’s use our knowledge about how stuff works to solve these questions, and to program a robot for our own tasks!
