We are sorry to announce all programs are closed


The Environmental Science Workshop is a unique program for students to engage in hands-on science concepts, while gaining an appreciation for how surplus materials can be kept out of the landfill and re-used in creative and exciting ways. The Environmental Science Workshop program reaches over 600 students each week. The Workshop creates environments where young people explore science by tinkering and becoming authors of their own educational experiences. Materials and tools are provided and the program is free.

Come tinker, build and explore science with us!
