Investigate science careers, experiment with roller coasters, build a bridge, explore our city and navigate the three rivers... Carnegie Science Center summer camps let your child discover science as a fun, creative way to explore the world. With Carnegie Science Center as home base, summer campers have access to hundreds of hands-on exhibits, the world-class high-definition Buhl Planetarium, a real Cold War submarine, live science demonstration shows, Highmark SportsWorks®, and dozens of science communication professionals.
Your summer camp experience is specially designed to offer opportunities the school-year classroom can't, with plenty of individual hands-on activities, supervised exploration, and interactive fun.
Carnegie Science Center camp instructors are professional teachers and college seniors majoring in science or education, assisted by college students with documented experience working with children. All summer camp staff members, instructors, and assistants have passed criminal background checks.
Carnegie Science Center camp registration fees include all scheduled activities, instruction, supplies, a summer camp T-shirt and plenty of time to explore the Science Center.
