Treat your child to a Summer of STEM Adventures! It’s our 50th year!


Located atop Talcott Mountain, this day program is designed so your child can explore and create in hands-on programs designed by our teachers and scientists. 


Children entering grades K-8 can attend for the whole summer or just by the week.

The season runs from the last full week of June to the second week of August.


Imagine a place....

            ...where your child can experience the wonders of science, nature & technology

            …with other curious and creative children

            ...that challenges young minds with discovery and exploration

            ...that makes learning fun and exciting!


Talcott Mountain is made for the scientific, the artistic, and the inquisitive; where you make new friends in a campus full of instruments of discovery; where everyone cares about kids; and where your child can thrive!


Age-appropriate sessions include: Robotics, Computer Game Making, Astronomy, Rocketry, Magic & Science, Arduino, Girls Rock!, Raspberry Pi, Green Energy, STEM Crafts, Computer Graphics and Animation, Wild Weather, 3D Printing, Geocaching, Animation, Movie Making and much more!
