Discover science through a winter explorer adventure.

What does an explorer in the Arctic need to do to prepare for an expedition? What will they see there?

Little explorers will come to the Discovery Center day camps (9:00 am – 4:00 pm) for days filled with winter fun, including large demonstrations, cool experiments, and explorer-approved creations to take home!
