Science Getaways is based on the idea that vacations aren’t just supposed to be fun for the body — they should be fun for your brain, too! And we know science can be fun: from the eons-old rock beneath your feet to the magnificent stars above your head, science is cool. Our goal is to bring together science enthusiasts who want a science adventure vacation that offers new experiences and the chance to learn about the natural world from experts in different scientific fields.
