This summer, school-age students will have a blast as we EXPLORE A MAD SCIENCE SUMMER!
High quality summer programs keep students engaged in learning, teach them new skills, and encourage them to develop previously unseen talents.
Discover a summer program that is set apart from all the rest! We offer full day summer programs that are fun for children and offer flexible scheduling for parents. Register for one week or the whole summer.
