Scout Programs

The museum offers programs for Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Scouts BSA. We offer fun, hands-on activities to develop skills and knowledge in a variety of science fields. Our programs meet requirements for a variety of badges and programs.

Scout programs are $5 per scout, with a minimum of two adult leaders/chaperones per group. A minimum of three scouts are required to reserve a program, and a maximum of fifteen are allowed in one program.  To schedule a scouting program, please submit a registration form.

For more information or to assess your troop’s unique needs, contact the museum’s Outreach & Engagement Coordinator, Eleanor Gardner, via email or call (785)-864-2380.
