December Vacation Science

Vacations should be fun, right? At the Talcott Mountain Science Center, students who spend their vacations with us laugh, learn and love what they're doing! Our programs are hands-on, our classes are small and there's always something for everyone.

 

Classes are typically two or three-day courses, and cost $180 for TMSC Members/ $200 General Admission. All classes are from 9:00am-4:00pm. Students are required to bring a lunch and should dress for the weather. We have gotten many requests for online offerings, as well as feedback to keep in-person courses. That being said, 2020's December Vacation at TMSC will offer IN-PERSON for K-3rd graders and ONLINE for 4-8th graders.
