You’re wondering about the cost, aren’t you?

Customized doesn’t mean costly. These events can be as small or as large as you want them, so we’ll work with you to create an experience to remember at a reasonable price. Events usually cost between $2,000–$8,000 depending on variables such as duration, number of stations, number of staff, number of participants, food preferences, etc.

These events really are customized experiences. Chances are, we have a program that will meet your budgetary constraints. Plus, we’re a non-profit. If you can’t afford it, we might be able to help! So, pop us an email or give us a call.

Rockin’ Rockets
Design a rocket capable of landing on a far-off planet! Investigate how different variables affect the flight of a rocket and learn about aerodynamics, forces, and motion along the way!


Blow the House Down
A hurricane is coming, and you need a strong shelter! Build a home that can stand up to the wind. Put your home to the test and see if it can outlast the storm.


Earth Impact
What would happen if a meteor impacted Earth again? Simulate impacts and see how the size and shape of a meteor affects Earth’s surface.


Robots to the Rescue
Use your coding skills to program a rescue robot to locate and then guide a lost character to safety.

Animals Among Us
Try your hand at identifying a mysterious animal by touch. Then meet and greet some of our favorite friends including Cleopatra the bearded dragon, Garrus the snake, a family of hissing cockroaches, and many more! Observe some of their curious characteristics and learn how their traits help them survive.


Naked Egg Drop
Use knowledge of forces and motion to engineer a device to safely catch a precious cargo.


Engineer a Bridge
The animals need a bridge to safely cross the river! Use common and recycled materials to achieve this engineering feat. Watch as the animals test your design.


DNA Extraction
Have you ever wondered how scientists get DNA out of cells? Learn how extracting DNA from your own cells. Once you have your DNA, make a DNA necklace to show your family and friends.

A Shocking Experience!
Have you been shocked while moving around your house? Have you wondered what a bolt of lightning is? Create your own shocking experience and watch this mysterious force in action.


Maglev Racers
It’s a float to the finish line! Join our scientific pit crew and learn to use a mysterious force to levitate and race a vehicle. See how fast you can make your vehicle go.


Air Force Fun!
Air is an invisible but mighty force! It can do many things from uprooting trees to keeping planes in the sky. Learn how to harness this invisible power and direct it to knock down targets.


Uncovering Our Past
Learn how fossils are formed, discovered, and used to help us understand Earth’s past. Make a mold and cast of your favorite fossil to take home. Explore, ask questions, and find answers to the mysteries of prehistoric life.
