Have a young inventor, engineer or explorer looking for a creative and fun way to spend time this summer? It's not too late to sign up for a great Hall summer camp like Eco Explorations or Electric Gadgetry!

Camp registration ends August 15. Remember, members receive discounts on all our camps and classes.
“This is so awesome!” The exclamation rings out loudly across a small classroom filled with eager kindergartners and first graders learning about the science of electricity. Each camper grabs items, ranging from twisted slinky wreckage to plastic spoons, to test on their individual circuit ...

Ever wonder why some fireworks are red? Or blue? Different chemistry!

Although the Hall will be closed on the 4th of July, you can still apply your knowledge as you enjoy the fireworks show!

Please note that while we always love having visitors up here for the great view, Centennial Drive will be closed after 5:00 p.m., and UCPD will be present to direct cars away from our parking lots on July 4th.
