The Next Generation of Scientists, Innovators & Dreamers

It's a fact, science is part of our everyday world. Whether you are making a sandwich, riding a bike or building a rocket - its all around us. At Chabot, we are inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers, innovators and dreamers. 

We offer many exciting opportunities for kids to get involved, get excited and get engaged! Check out our Discovery Lab, submit a question to a real life Astronomer or Scientist, take a photo in our replica Gemini Transport Capsule, participate in a demonstration, celebrate a birthday or look through a telescope at the same stars that kids looked at over a hundred years ago. Kids can bring their parents to our Tykes Explorers Workshops, participate in Space & Science Camp, or vanquish energy vampires in our Bills Climate Lab online game and much more.

The list below is just some of the things you will find especially for KIDS at Chabot.
