Can’t wait for Science Day? The Rockville Science Center sponsors a free Science Tuesday on the second Tuesday of the month, a Science Café on the third Tuesday of the month and summer camps at the Bullis School and at City of Rockville community centers.

For something a bit more hands-on, the center hosts activities at the Makerspace in the Rockville Memorial Library, 21 Maryland Ave., in Rockville Town Square. Activities include programming, electronics, amateur radio license training and other high-tech projects. Find the Makerspace schedule at
