Homeschool Workshops

Looking for ways to provide educational programming and hands-on discovery for your homeschooler in Pittsburgh? Carnegie Science Center is your resource for bridging the gap between science curricula and student comprehension.

Join us for interactive science lessons to foster curiosity and discovery in support of what your kids and teens are learning at home. Our workshops are tailored for a variety of ages and provide time to socialize with other young scientists. Best of all, there are no explosions in your home!

Workshop cost: $15/$18 (members/nonmembers)

All workshops are specifically designed for the age group listed. To make the most of your child’s experience, they must be the appropriate age on the date the selected workshop begins.
