Hands-On Exploration

Investigate science careers, experiment with roller coasters, build a bridge, explore our city and navigate the three rivers... Carnegie Science Center summer camps let your child discover science as a fun, creative way to explore the world. With Carnegie Science Center as home base, summer campers have access to hundreds of hands-on exhibits, the world-class Buhl Digital Dome high-definition planetarium, a real Cold War submarine, the Rangos Omnimax Theater, Highmark SportsWorks®, and dozens of science communication professionals. Your summer camp experience is specially designed to offer opportunities the school-year classroom can't, with plenty of individual hands-on activities, supervised exploration, and interactive fun.

Experienced Teachers

Carnegie Science Center camp instructors are professional teachers and college seniors majoring in science or education, assisted by college students with documented experience working with children. All summer camp staff members, instructors, and assistants have passed criminal background checks.

Reasonable Prices

Carnegie Science Center camp registration fees include all scheduled activities, instruction, supplies, a summer camp T-shirt and plenty of time to explore the Science Center. Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh members enjoy discounted fees. Fees vary by length of camp, and camps with field trips or extra materials may have additional costs.
