Science Fun!

Exploring the Science Trek website is a great way to learn about science, but there are lots of great places to go to get some hands-on science fun. We have started a list of places. We encourage you to visit them and have noted those places featured in a Science Trek or D4K video. If you have a suggestion for a great place to learn about science, send us an email. We will post new places periodically.
