Our Creative Connections programs are designed specifically to meet the needs of our youngest CTY participants. The imaginative and interactive programs include one-day and overnight learning experiences for students and parents at prestigious museums, science and nature centers, and aquariums. Program structure varies at each site, but every event includes hands-on activities designed to provide a stimulating environment in which families can learn together and discover fascinating new interests. We look forward to welcoming our youngest students and their parents to the CTY family!
* A note about our overnight programs: Unless otherwise indicated, families spend the night in the host institution. It is highly recommended that participants bring sleeping bags, foam pads, and pillows to these programs as they will be sleeping on the floor.

Join CTY for an exploration into planes, rockets, and space! Take a special guided tour of the Museum’s Restoration Area—the hidden world of propellers and engines, tools and drafting tables. Build and fly a foam and balsa glider with adjustable tail and wing positions, and in the process learn the Four Forces of Flight. Go on a high tech tour of the Solar System featuring the Magic Planet Digital Globe. Learn how a rocket works by building one around a film canister and then launching it with Alka-Seltzer! Visit the odd but fascinating Ripley’s Believe it or Not! exhibit. Complete the day with an immersive 3-D/4-D theater experience. Discover your place in the universe during this action-packed adventure at San Diego’s very unique Air & Space Museum. This program begins around 8:30 a.m. and ends around 3:30 p.m. Morning refreshments, lunch, and museum admission are included.
