Where exactly at the museum is SciTech Academy?

SciTech is located on the North end of the museum grounds but not inside the museum. Once you drive in off of Gene Autry, follow the signs that say "Berger Annex". From the north parking lot you will see a fenced off area with a sign that says "SMaRT Education".

Please arrive at the time your class starts. We cannot allow anyone to wait in the classroom.

Do we have to sign up for the whole summer?

No. Camps are one week each. You can sign up for as many as you like.

We want to sign up for multiple camps. Will the activities be the same?

We often have kids who come back for multiple weeks. Each week offers an overall STEAM focus through various projects and activities though there is no specific theme to the week.

The camp I want to sign up for is full. Will you add more spots/camps?

We will not be adding any additional spots to our summer camps. If a spot becomes available we will send out an email to our email list and the spot then becomes available first-come-first-served.
