Vacations should be fun, and so should learning. That's why students love spending some of their vacation week with us! This February, join the Talcott Mountain Science Center for exciting new programs and repeats of your favorites! Class size is limited to 12 participants, so each student benefits from individual attention and hands-on participation.
Reserve your child's seat today! There is no bus transportation for February Vacation Programs.
