Science on the Road Goes Camp-tastic

Thursdays at 1–2 pm
June 24–August 19

Combat the summer slide with Carnegie Science Center’s Science on the Road team! Each week, families and community groups can join us for live virtual presentations of our mind-blowing, head-scratching science assemblies for students in grades K–8.

Science on the Road Goes Camp-tastic is perfect for homeschool families and parents who looking to engage their children with fun and educational STEM programs this summer! It’s also a great opportunity for summer camps, summer schools, libraries, and community groups to supplement their own programming with a dynamic and fun science assembly.

These online STEM programs for kindergarten, elementary school, and middle school students excite young scientists with live science experiments and demonstrations that explore engineering, zoology, physics, geometry, and more!

Virtual assemblies will be presented every Thursday at 1–2 pm, starting June 24 through August 19. 

Curious about what a virtual science assembly looks like? Take a look at our brand-new Science of Hockey assembly in this KDKA Kidsburgh segment.


  • $15 per family (up to five people)
  • $150 per classroom (up to 35 students)

Call 412.237.3400 to book today!

Please note: Reservations must be made by the Friday before each presentation.
