Science Shop

  • Educational kits
  • Games and puzzles
  • Freeze dried ice cream
  • Books
  • Plush stuffed animals
  • And so much more

Tax is included to simplify purchases for young customers. School groups visiting CSC can ask for purchases to be bagged separately, with student names, and placed in a larger bag for the teacher to take back to school before distributing.
