Boy Scouts

Badge Workshops

Although these workshop fulfill Boy Scout requirements, they are available to all children.

Scouts can work toward a variety of science-related badges at specially designed workshops led by teachers who really know science! The experience promises hands-on fun and learning, too! Meet boys from other troops and enjoy the Science Center’s exciting atmosphere as you make progress on your badges.

Join a scheduled session on your own or with your troop. You can also schedule a private session for any of the workshops we offer with a group of 10 or more Boy Scouts. Call for availability and additional details. Some of our Science Workshops fulfill Scout requirements. Current offerings are listed below.

You can also make progress toward science-related badges by attending a Science Sleepover or planning a Carnegie Science Center field trip.
