Science Works Museum

Science Works Hands on Museum mission is: "To inspire wonder and stimulate creative exploration through fun interactive science and the arts." Coyote Trails has partnered with the Museum since 2008 by offering day camps and the "Science of Tracking" lecture series. 

ScienceWorks is home to nearly 100 interactive exhibits that encourage children and adults to learn about more about various scientific principles. The museum currently uses 10,000 of an available 20,000 square feet of exhibit space, allowing for the possibility of future expansion within the existing museum building. The majority of exhibits have been built in-house in a state-of-the-art fabrication studio.
