In 1989, we began engaging young scientists through our classroom workshops. In 2012, we realized that the fun didn’t have to end once kids finished school for the day. Our community workshop program has been designed with 4-12 year olds in mind, with hands-on investigations and activities led by a presenter.

In 2020, we launched virtual STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programming, bringing our fun, hands-on activities to wherever you are! Check out our new virtual offerings below. Due to COVID-19 we are currently not offering any in-person programming.

Virtual STEM Experiences

Virtual Family Science Night

A child and parent doing a science experiment.

The goal of our Family Science Night is to have parents and guardians explore STEM alongside their child(ren), discover new things, and help build their child’s/children’s confidence and motivation for continued learning. By getting kids excited about science and math at an early age, we help to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as help to connect science to the world around them. Your Family Science Night will have four live, dynamic, interactive 60-minute sessions with presenters who are scientists, engineers, and technologists. Each session can accommodate 15 family connections. Sessions can run concurrently on the same night, or two different dates.

Scientists in Situ

For our community partners, we’re now offering live virtual STEM workshops called “Scientists in Situ.” Our fun, hands-on virtual STEM workshops are led by a presenter, and can be done wherever you are. Virtual workshops cost $195 and can accommodate up to 15 children per session. All of the materials for the investigations are sent ahead for the young scientists.

Bring the amazement and wonder of hands-on science to your after-school program (including PD days), library, daycare, summer/March Break camp or other community event.

Party Like a Scientist!

Host a virtual STEM Birthday party for your young scientist! You’ll have the best birthday ever in our CANDY CHEMISTRY virtual party. Parties cost $250 and can accommodate up to 12 participants (extra guests can be added for a fee). We provide everything to make your virtual party a success, including: a special e-vite to send your guests, Mini Science Bags with materials delivered in advance for each guest, and secure and seamless party delivery through Microsoft Teams.

Parties can be organized for any special occasion, birthdays, and family-friendly employee/client appreciation events!

Family Friendly Virtual STEM Events for Your Employees/Clients

Perfect for holiday parties, staff celebrations or client appreciation events, we work with you to create a unique and hands-on virtual experience for families to enjoy together. Your virtual event will have Mini Science Bags with materials delivered in advance for each family, secure and seamless event delivery through Microsoft Teams, dynamic presenters who are scientists, engineers, and more!
