TEEN SCIENCE SCENE

Teen Science Scene is a brand new program aimed to inspire ages 13–17 to expand their interest in science and engineering! These workshops will provide participants with real-world experiences and hands-on activities. If you are a teenager who wants to learn more and have fun along the way, or if you know a teenager that might be interested in this program, make sure to register today! Space is limited. Fees will vary depending on the class.

TEEN SUMMER CAMP

Arizona Science Center offers amazing camps for teens each summer.  Past programs have included:

Camp Biomed for Teens. Delve deeper into how to make a genetically-engineered drug while discussing the latest in neurological research and medical advances with scientists and neurosurgeons. This experience not only includes hands-on laboratory work, but also researching and creating the mathematical formulations used in lab experiments. This camp is for teens interested in a deep biomedical experience.  

Robotics and 3-D Printing in CREATE. In groups, campers will create and design their very own robot. Participants will use Arduinos to program the brain of the robot and 3-D print all of the crucial parts. This camp will introduce teens to Arduino, C++ programming, CAD design and 3-D printing.

 Email camps@azscience.org for more information.
