STEM Adventure Camp
Gateway to Science will be offering our summer science exploration program, STEM Adventure Camp, for children entering grades 1-5 in the fall of 2019. This summer, we will also be offering two weeks of camp for students entering grades 6-9. Every day of every week is a new adventure, with plenty of fun STEM projects and activities. We do our best to build camp activities around the interests of students registered for each week of camp. In addition, professional scientists may drop in throughout the summer to share STEM lessons and activities to give campers a taste of “real-life” science!
Gateway to Science offers full and half day options, with the first camp week scheduled for May 28-31. Member registration opens March 25; non-member registration opens March 27. Check out the full STEM Adventure Camp schedule and make your summer plans now!

March 30 Preschool Discovery Hour
Preschool Discovery Hour is a unique program for preschoolers (ages 3-K). It allows them to informally learn science concepts with their favorite adult, without the pressure of understanding everything. The sessions are fun and hands-on. Each week’s lesson can stand alone, so come when you can and don’t worry when you can’t! No pre-registration is required.
Preschool Discovery Hour is from 10:30 – 11:15 am on select Saturdays. The next PDH session will be Saturday, March 30.
Preschool Discovery Hour is for children ages 3 years – Kindergarten and their parent or other favorite adult. We allow up to two children per adult. Each child will be charged separately. Preschool Discovery Hour is FREE for Gateway to Science members. Non-Members may pay $7.00 per session. Check the Preschool Discovery Hour schedule for more dates.
