Great experience for kids and some young adults. This is a learning experience more than a fun thing.

This was great, affordable family fun in Grand Junction (way better than Banana's, or, God forbid, Chuck-e-Cheese!!) - my kids could have stayed for a whole afternoon messing around with gadgets and science demonstrations (and watching the giant cockroaches, hoping one might hiss!) - it was not just educational, but unexpectedly cool.

Stoped by and was underwhelmed by the buidling. The insdie is packed with simple science experiments that entertained the kids for a couple of hours. Worth the money and time if you are looking for a kid diversion.

We LOVED this place. The kids really enjoyed the activities and learned a lot. They asked questions, experimented, and didn't want to leave.

A gem in the Grand Valley, the Science & Math center provides interesting and engaging learning opportunities for young children. Summer sessions include week long creative and inventive classes. A future community supported expansion will open the center to more exposure for students of all ages. My grandkids (ages 7 and 5) attend New Emerson Elementary and benefit each day... More

Of all the summer camps that my children attend, science camps are their favorites! Not only are they fun but also educational! As a scientist myself, I really appreciate all the quality education, problem solving, experimentation opportunities that they provide for our children and youth!
