    The best place for Scouts to explore STEAM! We offer unique, fun-filled workshops, designed specifically for Scouts. Come to the Museum for your workshop and get hands-on as you explore math, science, technology, and more.

Scouts

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum is a great place for Cub and Girl Scouts to explore STEM concepts through activities, games and experiments.  We offer many hands-on workshops specifically designed to fulfill the requirements for a variety of badges, loops, and pins.

Cub Scout Workshops

Belt Loop and NOVA Award requirements are generally designed to happen over the course of three Den meetings. Often visits to museums are encouraged in order to enrich the experience. Our Belt Loop programs are not meant to complete the requirements in one whirlwind session but rather to complement your Pack’s activities and to motivate and excite your Cubs as they complete their adventures with their Dens and adult leaders.

Tiger- Stories in Shapes; Wolf- Code of the Wolf; Bear- Forensics, Make It Move; Webelos- Adventures in Science

NOVA Awards- 123 Go!, Swing!

Girl Scout Workshops

Daisy- Clover’s Story (Use Resources Wisely); Brownies- Home Scientist, Inventor, Senses, Fling Flyer Design Challenge; Juniors- Detective, Entertainment Technology; Cadette- Special Agent, Wind Energy

Pricing

$15 per scout; minimum of 5 scouts (or $75); this includes admission into the museum and two free adults accompanying the troop.  Additional adults are $8 per person.

Please Note: Siblings above the age of two years wishing to participate in the workshop must pay the $15 scout fee.  Siblings and adults wishing to come into the museum but not participate in the workshop are subject to the regular museum admission fee.

Cancellation Policy
