There's something fun happening at the Sciencenter!

All programs & events are included with museum admission unless otherwise noted.


Ongoing starting 4/14!

NEW Free Take and Make Kits!

We’ve partnered with the Tompkins County Public Library (TCPL) to offer “Color Frogs” STEM Take and Make Kits!

Red! Yellow! Blue! Ribbit! Get ready mix some colors with the new Take and Make Kit: Color Frogs. With this kit, you will be able to make three frog panels with red, yellow, and blue translucent film. Find a good bright spot and stack the frogs together to make secondary colors!

The kits are free and given out on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. You can pick up a kit at TCPL beginning 4/12 during open hours, and at the Sciencenter beginning 4/14, during open hours.

Be aware that supplies are limited and we cannot guarantee there will be kits available at either location.

Thanks to the Cornell Center for Materials Research, Families Learning Science Together Program, the Sciencenter, and the National Science Foundation for making this program and kit possible.
