We Bring Science to Kids

Through our esteemed Scholars in the Schools programs, Pinhead Punk Science events, No School Science Projects, Pinhead Packs, Summer Science Camps, and Stargazing Series, Pinhead provides a variety of opportunities for kids to engage in science with leading science professionals right here in our region. In our newly opened Pinhead Headquarters, we host programs like Jitterbugs, Mini Missions, Mad Labs and more! There is no shortage of cool science fun when Pinhead is involved!

And, We Bring Kids to Science

The Pinhead Internship Programs are personalized six-week immersion experiences where select students work with leading researchers on the most interesting questions of science. Highly-qualified rising high school seniors declare their area of interest and Pinhead provides the internship to fit their dreams.
