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.  

You and your child’s health and safety is always our first priority. In-Person Science Clubs at Da Vinci Science Center have extensive health and safety procedures and staff training in place every year.
