Science Over Summer!

We offer a ton of fun programming here at the Explorium, even over Summer! Come stay on science while you're off school!



Science Stories (Ages 5+)

Stop by to hear some of our favorite science inspired stories! Every Saturday morning our staff likes to pick out their favorite books and share them with everyone. Of course, we have a funny way of finding the science in every story. Play and learn as we use props and engagements to bring stories to life.

Every Saturday at 11:30am
