We regret to inform you that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the After School Program has been canceled for the 2020-2021 academic year (September 2020 - June 2021). We realize that this cancellation affects 10th and 11th-grade students looking to apply to the Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP). Please check the Science Research Mentoring Program website for eligibility criteria for the academic year 2021-2022.  Although we will not have After School Program courses for high school students this academic year, you can visit for a growing list of our online educational resources. You may also visit the Museum as it has reopened to the public. Please click here to reserve tickets. To read more about the Museum’s health and safety procedures, please click here. The Museum is open 10 am–5:30 pm, Wednesday–Sunday. On behalf of the entire High School Programs team, I want to thank you for being part of our community. We look forward to welcoming you back to the After School Program as soon as we can.
