Scouts at Cranbrook 2015-16

Field trips to Cranbrook Institute of Science offer your Scouts the chance to work with science professionals active in their fields, and the opportunity to interact with a unique collection of objects and artifacts. Our experts work with your group to coach Scouts through a variety of science topics using interactive workshops and hands-on activities which leaves them with a heightened understanding of the natural world and a curiosity to learn more about the wonder of science. Workshop fees include the cost of general admission and Scouts are encouraged to come early, or stay late, to visit the Institute during regular museum hours.
