Professional Learning for Educators and Quality Student Programs

We believe Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics are all creative, hands-on, and exciting subjects. Being curious about our world, and worlds beyond, is central to the human experience. It is our hope that all people have the chance to celebrate this basic human instinct and be able to understand and influence the world around them.

Fall Weekend College for Kids will take place on the following Saturdays:
