The one-of-a-kind Music City Science—Transit Adventures camp also returns this summer for rising 7th, 8th and 9th graders.

July 6 – 10, July 13 – 17 and July 20 – 24. Transit Campers start each day at the Science Center where they select destinations, plan their route, choose the day’s team leader, and then head out on MTA buses with trained staff to explore the sights and sounds of Music City USA. Supported in part by Nashville MTA. ScienceQuest Camps are led by a dedicated group of certified teachers and college students with an interest in education and/or science, with support from counselors who are Adventure Science Center educators, volunteers and interns.
