Once a month during the school year, SciWorks offers programs specifically for home-educated children and other groups too small to register for our regular classroom and auditorium programs. Group admission rates apply for each person. You must pre-register for these programs. SciWorks offers a wide variety of educational programs that correspond with North Carolina Essential Standards for Science. Download the new Educator’s Guide for more information.
