Programs for Children and Families

Indoors and out, Montshire’s programs for children and families provide plenty of opportunities for exploring science during the school year.

The Montshire offers programs for all ages in the family

Want to foster your preschooler’s curiosity? Or spark your middle-schooler’s creativity? Maybe give your toddler a glimpse of science in action?

The Montshire offers a range of programs for each member of your family. Together as a family or individually as a student, find out what you can discover from one of our many programs.

Most programs require pre-registration and a fee is charged. Programs are taught by the Montshire education staff. Need-based scholarships are available.
