Attention Daycares, Sci-Port has cool science for these hot days!

Summer Fieldtrips to Sci-Port

Sci-Port has summer programming just for you! So, in an effort to create an educational experience for you and your group, Sci-Port
has several programs available to enhance your experience. The programs have been selected to allow you and your group the
opportunity to participate in more then just our exhibits. 

Please Note: If you have not scheduled a fieldtrip and pre-registered for a hands-on floor program for your visit, you will be unable to
attend our public, hands-on floor programs due to space availability reserved for our general visitors. This is why we’re providing you
your own unique programming and strongly encouraging you to pre-register your visit. Space Dome Planetarium Shows and general
public Demonstrations are open to all. Available programs are listed in the grid and last 30 minutes.
