The Aspen Science Center is excited to announce the 11th year of our (paid) Summer Intern Educator program! High school and college students interested in exploring STEM careers, gaining valuable experience in STEM education, and immersing themselves in the world of nonprofit management are encouraged to apply.
Advancing public understanding of science through lifelong discovery, exploration, and education. The Aspen Science Center serves communities and schools throughout the Roaring Fork Valley with a range of programs and events for schools, families, and individuals of all ages.
ASC Discovery Center
AGES 11-13 Campers will learn about the basics of forensics before getting their hands dirty learning some of the different methods used for solving crimes, such as hair and fiber analysis, fingerprinting, blood types and bloodstain pattern analysis, and potential poison identification.
AGES 11-13 Coding, robotics, engineering and more! Campers will work together to use technology and creativity to solve challenges, build solutions, and explore how technology can help us in the real world in this 3-day camp.
AGES 11-13 We will be studying the Roaring Fork Valley’s wildlife and natural environment. From topics of the Ice Age Discovery, Botany, Entomology, Zoology, Geology, and more!
AGES 7-10 The camp will start with the fundamentals of rocketry involving Newton’s laws of motion and expand from there to explore different rocketry topics such as altitude, velocity, acceleration, thrust, drag, and lift.
AGES 7-10 This is a beginners Robotics camp, not intended for children who have experience. The week-long camp will focus on building and programming simple rovers with the Lego WeDo 2.0 kits.
AGES 11-13 Your camper will earn their MD after exploring topics of the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves); circulatory system (blood, lungs, heart and more); digestive system; the skeletal and muscular systems.
AGES 5-6 Children were introduced to science terms and concepts in an exciting way! Each day children participate in hands-on investigations, enjoy outdoor playtime, scavenger hunts, story time, and lots of fun science learning.
AGES 7-10 An all-girls camp will allow for the campers to support and build confidence for each other while exploring themes such as Rocketry, Robotics, and Environmental Science.
AGES 11-13 From the basic science of fuels and fires; to natural and human-made wildfires, commercial and neighborhood fires; firefighting equipment design and engineering; fire prevention policies and practices.
AGES 7-10 Come explore the wonders of our world through physics! Each day, campers will get to create projects to learn about the rules of our natural world.
AGES 1-5 This free program offers families with young children between the ages of 1 and 5 an opportunity to explore the wonders of STEM at an early age.
AGES 5- 13 Join the ASC once a month from Parachute to Aspen at your local library for an exciting FREE program!
AGES 11-13 Join the Aspen Science Center in an exploration of computer science.
