For family nights, field days, fairs and more!

Love our Programs-on-Wheels but looking for something less structured? Exploration Stations provide hands-on, stop-and-go, informal learning perfect for family nights, field days or fairs. Book one or more stations, available in a variety of science and social studies topics, for your next event. You provide the tables and we'll provide materials and activities for people of all ages to explore at their own pace.
