Vacation Programs (K-8)

Vacations should be fun, and so should learning. That's why students love spending some of their vacation week with us! Two, three, or four-day programs for grades K-3 and 4-8 keep your child’s sense of discovery and accomplishment going strong! 

Give a Talcott program to your favorite budding young science enthusiast(s)!


Talcott offers a wide array of programs that vary seasonally, everything from robotics to green energy, from nature to chemistry, from coding to geocaching - to keep your child engaged and inspired to learn. They’ll have a blast and learn a lot! 

Pre-registration required, please no walk-ins or same-day registration.   


Registration is via Active Network and uses a "shopping cart model" - you can register multiple students / multiple courses all in one login! By hovering over the "i" icon on Active Network, you can see the cost of the course before checkout. Talcott Members also get $20 off each course; this discount is applied by using your membership code at checkout. Please make sure all information is correct for the course(s) you choose, including any required course materials if applicable, and that you have filled out the behavior (for all courses) and medical (not required for online courses) completely. 

The registration fee is $5.95 per course, and applies whether you register online or with a mail-in form. Mail-in forms require a paper check for payment. It is not necessary to purchase registration insurance, although you might see it when you're checking out. This insurance has no affiliation with the Science Center, but is offered through Active Network. Online registration is via credit card, debit card, or electronic check.


In the event of a cancellation, you can choose credit towards any other program at 100%, or a refund minus 10% fee for transaction processing and handling.
