Program Participants

Schedule a series of recurring visits from our Traveling Lab to create a unique hands-on science experience!

Each theme will build knowledge and understanding of a specific science topic, while supporting Next Generation Science Standards over the course of several labs/activities.

These lab series are ideal for:

  • After school groups
  • GATE programs
  • Grade level activities


  • Traveling Lab Series are scheduled over a series of weeks or days.
    • Typical schedule consists of 4 total visit dates.
  • Participating students must remain consistent on each date, as activities build from visit to visit.
  • Labs take place in your existing classrooms/multipurpose rooms.
  • Each lab lasts approximately 60 minutes, and can accommodate up to 25 students.
  • Multiple lab groups may be scheduled on each visit date (same theme/activities only).
    • If space permits, two labs groups may be scheduled simultaneously.
  • Labs are facilitated by California Science Center educators.

Available Theme Options

Air & Space (Grades 3-8): Cultivate the next generation of astronauts with these out of this world labs! Explore the forces of flight, engineer useful tools, and learn what it takes to go to space.

Forensics (Grades 3-8): Discover the tools you’ll need to solve a Science Center mystery! Learn how to lift fingerprints, identify relevant clues, create an argument based on evidence, and crack the case!

Engineering (Grades 3-8): Design, test, redesign, and create your very own projects! Students will test their creativity and problem solving skills while immersing themselves in a variety of engineering design challenges.

Note: Custom themes may be available on request
