SPECTACULAR SATURDAYS | Kids Out and About Hartford


Spectacular Saturdays (K-12) Make the most of your weekends with our four-week half days (K-3) or six-week full days (4-8) Saturday programs*, which provide hands-on discovery, exploration and research with guidance and skill building from Talcott scientists.

Students gain exposure to new areas in science, nature, and technology; they build 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.
