Liberty Science Center has an array of exciting and engaging virtual workshops that offer in-depth science explorations and provide focused learning experiences that go towards completing scouts' badge requirements.
Think and design like a mechanical engineer by creating a model car and exploring the process of building a rollercoaster.
Explore the basics of coding as you learn how to talk to a computer and give it basic instructions using Scratch.
Think and design like a mechanical engineer by creating a race car and exploring the science of flight.
Learn about Earth’s place in space as we discover how the Earth and Moon interact, go on a solar system tour and learn about our planetary neighbors.
Experience cool science activities and investigations you can do with materials found at home.
Learn the basics of coding and understand how women have shaped the world of computer science! Then learn to program an Arduino using Tinkercad and put your new skills to the test.
Visualize how big our Solar System is and discover different ways scientists explore it.
Take on the role of a mechanical engineer and use the Engineering Design Process while investigating and creating your own invention.
Become a forensic scientist, investigate clues, learn new investigative techniques, and solve our “Case of the Silver Monkey.”
Design custom characters, animations, and behaviors for video games by using the platform Construct 3. This intuitive toolset is limited only by your creativity.
Become a Gotham Detective and conduct an investigation and analyze evidence to build a case against one of the city's notorious criminal masterminds before it's too late.
Explore the night sky in our planetarium and learn about stars, constellations, and distant galaxies.
Become a detective and solve a “mock” crime science investigation by learning essential forensics techniques.
Learn how engineers use the engineering design process to develop everyday items using the same process to design and optimize a project.
