Let’s Science Together

MSC is back open, but you can still do science right at home!

The Maryland Science Center exhibit floors are back open to explore! But that doesn’t mean your science exploration stops once you’ve left. We’ve created a variety of online activities and events to bring a bit of the science center to your home. Try one of our Science At Home Activities, join us for new online events every week, and more!
