AFTER-SCHOOL, HOMESCHOOL, AND PRE-K CLASSES FOR AGES 3-15!
Join our fall science explorations for a season of adventure and learning! All of our age-appropriate programs emphasize engaging education, modified with safety precautions during COVID-19, so be prepared to jump in and DO science.
Registration is now open!
Registration is required. Full class fees are due at time of registration. We accept Visa and MasterCard. You must be a current GSC member at the time of registration to receive the member price. Memberships may be purchased or renewed separately by calling 336-288-3769, ext. 1324.

Should this occur, you will receive notification and a full refund. Limited financial assistance may be available. Contact Courtenay Vass at 336-288-3769 ext.1389 for details.
It’s time for fall fun with our youngest scientists! Hands-on classes involve animals, simple science, art, and stories revolving around each tot/adult pair. Choose a five- or seven-class punch card to attend any combination of our class options. You must stick to your class time (a.m. or p.m.). The class schedule is posted on our website as well as provided in class. Click here to download class schedule (PDF)
*Due to COVID-19, Nature Tots will be for the Nature Tot and one parent/adult only.
Pint-sized Professors: Full STEAM Ahead!
All aboard the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) train for after-school science fun. From colorful chemistry to colorful animals, we’ll explore science, technology, engineering and math through the eyes of art. Bring your creativity and plan to get a little messy as we discover STEAM.
Science Explorers: The Amazing World of Waves
Explore the physics of waves, why they are special, and how they reveal what there is to see and hear about the world around us and beyond. See light that is normally invisible and hear sounds our ears can’t detect. Discover what telescopes tell us about the past, create music using magnets, and find out how we are using waves to improve life on Earth.
This fall, choose the topics that interest your learners, and plan sessions around a variety of science areas. Each session includes hands-on science focused on simple machines, bubbles, dinosaurs, the residents of Revolution Ridge (new zoo expansion) and more. Choose a five- or seven-class punch card to attend any combination of our class options. Each class is geared towards the appropriate age level. Click here to download class schedule (PDF)
Join us for middle school science fun! Each session will focus on the animals that call the Greensboro Science Center home. We’ll learn about the classes of animals and meet old and new friends in the zoo and aquarium. We’ll discuss conservation, biodiversity and the species survival programs at the GSC as we chat with keepers and go behind the scenes.
One Day, Fun Day
Once a month your 5-year-old can enjoy an afternoon at GSC exploring and building fun machines using LEGO® DUPLO® bricks. We’ll learn about gears, levers, and pulleys. Each session has a different topic. Sign up for one or all three.
Look up to the sky and explore the wonders above us. We’ll build robotic animals and machines using LEGO® WeDo®. Concepts include simple machines, investigation of design, and programming.
Around and around we go. Where we stop, nobody knows. Let’s explore and build things that spin - from ducks dancing to a traditional spinning top with a twist.
Think Like a Scientist
We’ll use robotics and bricks to help us learn about science through the eyes of an engineer. Each week will be a different topic: moon base, grabbing objects, and sending messages.
There are so many fun devices and apps out there to get you moving. Let’s build our own robots and devices using the LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime Set to get us moving and grooving.
Guilford County School fall workdays are October 25 and 26.
Join us for some exciting building and programming in our robotic labs.
Make a hungry dinosaur that will chomp, chomp, chomp using the LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 set.
Let’s use the LEGO® Education WeDo® 2.0 set to explore how a dolphin would move with wheels instead of a tail.
Using the LEGO® Education pneumatics, add-on set we will explore a cool scissor lift.
Using the LEGO® Education simple and powered machines set we will build one of our all-time favorite car models. Students will have fun customizing and racing each other.
