Cancellation Policy
In case of insufficient registration, Carnegie Science Center reserves the right to cancel any program one week before it begins. All registered participants will receive a full refund.

Scouts BSA Workshops

Although these workshops fulfill Scouts BSA requirements, they are available to non-scouts of the appropriate age range.

Scouts can work toward a variety of science-related badges at specially designed workshops led by teachers and certified merit badge counselors who really know science! The experience promises hands-on fun and learning, too!

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. Register online or call 412.237.3400 to check availability, register over the phone, and ask for any more additional details. Advanced registration is required for all programming. You may also be interesting in attending a Science Sleepover. Scroll down to see a list of badge workshops currently being offered.

Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA Workshops

Cub Scout workshops are designed for children between the ages of 7–10, or 2nd–5th grade. Scouts BSA workshops are designed for children between the ages of 11–17, or 6th–12th grade.

Badge requirements that will be fulfilled are listed below. Additional badge requirements may need to be completed. A merit badge counselor will sign off on requirements completed during the workshop.

Cost: $20 per session unless otherwise noted.
Price includes all program materials and admission to the museum.
