Science On Wheels will build curiosity for STEM topics at your out-of-school time or summer camp program during our Summer Science Series. We will build curiosity and excitement in campers of all ages with five one-hour, engaging and interactive STEM programs spread throughout your camp experience.

Summer Science Series from Pacific Science Center

Each series features five one-hour, hands-on workshops full of engaging and educational activities facilitated by our educators. We tailor our programs for specific age groups in grades K-8. Choose to have your workshop series across one week or five weeks to engage your campers throughout the summer.
