Scout programsThe museum now has programs for Cub, Boy, and Girl Scouts. We offer scouts fun, hands-on activities to develop skills and knowledge in a variety of science fields. We currently offer educational programs that meet requirements for a variety of badges and programs.

Scout programs are $5 per scout or adult, with a minimum of two adult leaders/chaperones per group.  A minimum of three scouts are required to reserve a program, and a maximum of fifteen are allowed in one program.  To schedule a scouting program, please submit a registration form.

For more information about future Scouting programs or to assess your troop’s unique needs, contact the museum’s outreach & engagement coordinator, Eleanor Gardner, via email or call (785)-864-2380.
