Summer Camps - The Factory is the hottest place to enjoy science over the summer. Summer is right around the corner and we will have all the registration information available in mid March.

Birthday Parties - What could be cooler than having your birthday surrounded by scientific awesomeness? Check out all the packages we offer.

Girls Code Club - A monthly, facilitated meetup for girls to learn computer science concepts and coding applications. Girls will learn to design their own website, video game, or computer program based on their individual interests.

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, Juniors and Cadettes 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.
