NOTE: In keeping with The University of Kansas protocols in response to COVID-19, no in-person scout programs will be scheduled for the foreseeable future. However, we are are providing a limited number of virtual scout experiences. If you would like to hold a virtual scout meeting with a museum staff member, please contact our Outreach & Engagement Coordinator, Eleanor Gardner. Virtual interactions are extremely limited at this time. Thank you for your understanding. More virtual experiences can be found on our Museum From Home webpage, which is full of fun, hands-on science learning activities and explorations for a variety of age groups.

 

The museum has programs for Cub, Boy, and Girl Scouts. We offer scouts fun, hands-on activities to develop skills and knowledge in a variety of science fields. We currently offer educational programs that 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 complete and submit this registration form.  For more information about future Scouting programs or to assess your troop’s unique needs, contact the museum’s Outreach & Engagement Coordinator, Eleanor Gardner, via email or call (785)-864-2380.
