Scout Weekend Workshops

Our special weekend workshops provide in-depth science exploration for Scouts and transform the traditional field trip into a focused learning experience based on chosen themes.

Each Scout Weekend Workshop contains a series of hands-on activities that go toward fulfilling Scouts' badge requirements, plus access to general admission exhibitions, a film, and a souvenir fun patch.
