Summer Camp Registration Now Open!
Offered every week starting June 23, our popular half-day summer camps are for kids of all ages - from pre-Kindergarten to 8th grade. With almost 30 different camps to choose from, kids can spend a week as a superhero, wizard, pirate, roller coaster designer, artist and more - all while exploring the wonders of science!
Nano Day at the Fleet
Nano Days at the FleetWhat do tennis balls, PC hard drives and catalytic converters have in common? They all benefit from advances in nanotechnology, or the science of creating materials from single atoms. Discover how everyday products use nanotechnology, explore the tiny scale of nanoscience (one nanometer = one billionth of a meter!), then play with that strange nano-material, ferrofluid.
