Fall Spectacular Saturdays at TMSC!
Ages4-5 years 6-8 years 9-12 years
Make the most of your weekends with our three-week (K-3) or
six-week (4-8) Saturday programs, which provide hands-on discovery,
exploration and research with guidance and skill building from Talcott scientists.
Built on a tried-and-true enrichment model, students gain exposure to new areas in science, nature, and tech, they build the skills of a practicing professional, and they embark on creating original products or projects. The thrill of discovery and the satisfaction of success are "baked in" to our Saturday programs.
Our topics very seasonally, but include Robotics, Green Energy, Weather, 3D Printing, Ecology, Geology, Coding, Astronomy and more!
The PrimeTime program is for students in grades K-3 and meets for three Saturdays per topic. New programs are offered each fall, winter and spring.
The Sky's The Limit program for Fall is robot season for grades 4-8 - students may start as early as September 24 and join as late as October 15 as part of the FIRST LEGO League Robotics Competition - Talcott fields one team of 10 students for the regional (November) and state (December) competitions.
In the spring, Sky includes Weather, Green Energy and Ecology as well as the robot team for the Trinity College Firefighting Robot Competition.
All courses run from 9am-3pm at Talcott's mountain-top campus in Avon. Courses let students explore new areas of science and technology, integrated with math and language arts, taking on the role of a practicing professional scientist.
