Summer Camps - The Factory is the hottest place to enjoy science over the summer. Now children can come to several different camps we're offering during the weeks off from school.
Birthday Parties - What could be cooler than having your birthday surrounded by scientific awesomeness? Check out all the packages we offer.
Cub Scout Programs - Troops, Packs, Dens, lend me your Scouts! And bring them to the Factory for pins, badges, patches, and fun!
Girl Scout Programs - that engage Daisies, Brownies and Juniors in the physical sciences, engineering, and technology. For many reasons, girls are often not offered encouragement to participate in these areas of science.
Night Shift - The fun at the Fac happens after the sun sets. Your group can stay the night on the Factory floor. With programs, exhibits, and meals, it's an experience you'll never forget.
