Buyer's Guide
How long does each program last?
  Most programs/events last one hour, with the following exceptions: The rocket design program is a two-hour program which allows time to actually launch a rocket (weather permitting). The science assembly is 20 minutes, and the science special event is 45 minutes. Pre-school programs are 30 minutes.
What is the after school program schedule?
  After school programs may be purchased ala carte or as a 4-week block.  A one-hour program occurs one day a week for four weeks, and can be run again with a group of new students, or on different days of the week.  If class size is dependent on future registration, do not place an order on the website; rather contact us directly via email to make arrangements.
What is the recommended class size?
  Generally speaking, for Field Trips on Site and birthday parties, maximum class size is 24 in order to maintain standards of program quality and classroom management. After-school and summer camp programs are 12-20 students. When enrollment exceeds the recommended maximum class size, another class should be booked in order to accommodate all students. Science events are for larger groups, such as a school assembly.
What is the summer camp schedule?
  Summer camp programming can be purchased in 4 day blocks (Monday - Thursday).  Each day's activities occur between 8:00 am. and Noon.  Students engage in two-part activities throughout the morning, breaking for a snack and recess.  Programs run four days but can be repeated each week with a group of new students.  At this time we are not hosting summer camps; please refer to the Field Trip on Site listing for pricing or contact us directly via email.
Are America's Fun Science programs compliant with Minnesota science standards?
  Yes, all programs were designed by a licensed K-8 science teacher and certified STEM instructor with advanced engineering education training from the University of St. Thomas and the University of Colorado. Recommended grade levels are indicated for each program.
