Give your kids a productive and fun way to spend their time off from school at the Orlando Science Center. Our school break program offers kids the chance to learn more about science and technology in an exciting, interactive environment. Whether they’re learning about how cooking is science, or simply learning how a snake crawls, our camps and classes are designed to entertain and inform.

Dates & Topics
Friday, March 17
NEW! Ocean Explorers (Grades K-2)
Put on your scuba gear and dive deep into the underwater world of the ocean. Travel on the East Australian Current with a bale of sea turtles, learn to eat like a coral polyp and measure a Humpback Whale. From jellyfish that light up to underwater volcanoes; you’ll never guess what we’ll find under the sea!
Rockin’ Out! (Grades 3-6)
Rocks rule! Crushing pressure and intense heat are constantly shaping our world. Dig into an underground world of rattling earthquakes, erupting volcanoes and soaring mountains as you investigate why and how the earth changes every day.
Monday-Friday, March 20-24
STEM into Fairy Tales (Preschool)*
How will the three Billy Goats Gruff cross the river? What will Jack need to grow a bean plant? How will the three bears put their things back together after Goldilocks comes for a visit? STEM into Fairy Tales will use science, technology, engineering and math to solve popular fairy tale challenges to get the job done.
Pint-Size Programmers (Grades K-2)
Before you ever invent a robot to clean your room you’ll need to know the basics of programming. Learn about coding, the language of computers, to make animations and music then build a working car that moves on your command.
NEW! Brain Busters Academy (Grades 3-6)
Do you love to wrap your mind around mazes and solve even the most puzzling problems? You’ll be right at home with the Brain Busters Academy. Put your brainpower, math skills, and critical thinking to the test as you lead your team to victory.
