Homeschool Workshops

The goal of Carnegie Science Center is to provide a safe, welcoming, and enriching experience for all of our program participants. With the health and safety of our community, visitors and team members, and their families in mind, Carnegie Science Center has decided to cancel all Homeschool Workshops for the spring. This decision is consistent with recommendations set forth by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Allegheny County Health Department regarding social distancing at large events. Like all institutions, businesses, families and individuals, Carnegie Science Center is actively planning for safe and healthy operations during the emerging global COVID-19 pandemic. If you have reservations for a Homeschool Workshop, please contact our Registration Team at CustomerService@CarnegieScienceCenter.org for more information.

Please note: Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh are closed temporarily, including Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History, Andy Warhol Museum, and Carnegie Science Center – The Rangos Giant Cinema, Mummies of the World exhibition, USS Requin (SS 481) submarine, and Highmark SportsWorks®.

Looking for ways to provide educational programming and hands-on discovery for your homeschooler in Pittsburgh? Carnegie Science Center is your resource for bridging the gap between science curricula and student comprehension.

Join us for interactive science lessons to foster curiosity and discovery in support of what your kids and teens are learning at home. Our workshops are tailored for a variety of ages and provide time to socialize with other young scientists. Best of all, there are no explosions in your home!

Workshop cost: $15/$18 (members/nonmembers)

All workshops are specifically designed for the age group listed. To make the most of your child’s experience, they must be the appropriate age on the date the selected workshop begins.
