Utilizing non-traditional teaching techniques, museum artifacts & art, and fun-filled interactive activities, experienced teachers create customized plans for each day, corresponding to weekly themes. This year’s themes include: Our Galaxy & Beyond, Wild About Nature, Young Engineers, Dino Discoverers, Monkey Business, Legends & Lore, Animal Architects, and Transportation Through Time.

Studying science and history helps children know and understand the world around them. The Museum offers children this opportunity in a safe, fun, and interdisciplinary educational setting. Facilities include classroom areas, a Discovery Room, Museum galleries, and a 40-acre park, all used to enhance children’s learning experience. To ensure personalized instruction, classes are grouped by age and kept small, with a teacher to student ratio of 1:10.

Week 10, August 14—18, is Summer Extension Day Camp, allowing campers to register for a single day. Each day this week focuses on a different topic from the Magic School Bus Film Series: Decomposition (“Meet the Rot Squad”), Sound (“In the Haunted House”), Seeds (“Goes to Seed”), Cells (“Goes Cellular”), and Symbiosis (“Takes a Dive”).
