The Heikoff Giant Dome Theater is temporarily closed through the end of October 2023 as we enhance our accommodations for an even more extraordinary experience at the Fleet Science Center.
Junior Science Club
Junior Science Clubs let kids experience challenging hands-on activities and interact with local scientists. Our aim is to spark their curiosity and inspire their love of science!
Our sessions are filled with fascinating experiments and explorations that cover a variety of fields, including biology, chemistry, engineering, environmental science, physics, robotics and much more. The activities are specifically designed for kids aged 6–10, so your little ones can have a blast while learning something new.
We offer two sessions every month, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. or 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., so you can pick the one that works best for your family's schedule. By joining the Junior Science Club, you will become part of our community of science enthusiasts and discover a world of possibility.
