Homeschool Workshops

Select Thursdays from 10 am – Noon
Workshop cost: $15 Member / $18 Non-member
Ages: 6 – 8 and 9 – 12

Don't have a science lab in your basement? Fear not, parents. We understand the challenges parents face when they try to teach science in the home. Carnegie Science Center is your resource for bridging the gap between science curricula and student comprehension.

Our workshops are tailored for a variety of ages and provide educational programming, hands-on experiments, and time to socialize with other young scientists. Best of all, there are no explosions in your home!

Join us for hands-on, age-appropriate science lessons to foster curiosity and discovery in support of what your kids are learning at home.
