Science Clubs

Make new friends. Explore your interests. Have the most fun with science.

Science clubs at Da Vinci Science Center are all about having the most fun with science!  Each meeting, participants will explore different sciences, tinker with modern technology, and build new skills that will help them navigate life in the 21st century. Science Center educators are actively involved in making sure everyone works together, practices good communication techniques, and remains focused on the day’s objective.

Earth Detectives

Grades K-2, Wednesdays, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Jan. 18-Feb. 8, $99

Dig into the past as we ask questions and make discoveries about how the Earth formed. Examine REAL fossils, investigate archaeological phenomena, and marvel at the changes the Earth has undergone throughout time. Discover how scientists sift through the evidence left all over our planet to solve the mysteries of how and why our world behaves the way that it does. 

Eco Innovators

Grades K-2, Wednesdays, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Feb. 15-March 8, $99

A bit of creativity and a love of nature is all you need to become an Eco Innovator! Look to plants and animals for inspiration as we mimic their adaptations to solve human problems. Explore natural habitats and investigate the ways that plants and animals change the world to help them thrive. Work together to think about engineering solutions to some of the biggest environmental challenges we face today.

Super Slime Design

Grades 3-6, Wednesdays, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Jan. 18-March 8, $199

Invent your own unique slime formula!  Our slime scientists investigate, analyze, and create all sorts of crazy concoctions. Learn how to tweak the properties of your slime to make it stretch, stick, bounce, or even glow. Use the scientific method to expand your knowledge of basic chemistry. Then explore the engineering and design process to make never-before-seen slimes!  

Young Inventors: Patent Lab

Grades 5-9, Sundays, 10 a.m.-12 p.m., Jan. 22-March 12, $199

After honing your critical thinking skills in Idea Lab last fall, develop your idea into something worthy of a U.S. patent! Learn basic patent-drafting skills by exploring the process using a mock invention. They apply those lessons to the patent draft of their own idea. The top presentation at the program’s end-of-season showcase will receive pro bono assistance in filing an application for a provisional U.S. patent.

Concepts focused on in this club include patent writing and patent preparation; registration is by invitation of Idea Lab instructors. Registrants must complete the Idea Lab program before enrolling.  

Live Science Theater

Grades 4-8, Sundays, 10 a.m.-12 p.m., Jan. 22-March 12, $199

Help Da Vinci Science Center Bring Science to Life!  Get a special, behind-the-scenes peek at what goes into our live science shows and learn the secrets behind the creation of each one. Experiment with SuperCOOL states of matter, learn about the Forces at play with Newton’s laws of motion and explore the Chaos that can be created with chemical reactions. Work collectively to hone our public speaking and theater skills. In our final weeks, club members work together to create and perform a live show of their own!
