How to Register

Your child's summer of fun is just a few clicks away! Early registration is recommended for Talcott's Summer Programs, as space is limited. Course registration closes at 11:59pm the Thursday before the week you wish to attend. Please, no walk-ins.


DISCOUNTS: With our Early Bird specials you can get 10% off tuition through April 1st.  TMSC Members get an additional $20 off per course!  


REGISTER ONLINE: Follow the links from any course in the K-3 and 4-8 summer catalogs and pay by credit/debit or electronic check (please continue reading for step-by-step instructions for registering online).

  • Select each course you would like to register your child(ren) for. This adds them to your "shopping cart".
  • Once you have added all of your courses to your cart, please fill out your child's information for their desired course (example: if you have 2 children, "Joe & Gina", and you have selected Geocaching and Girls Rock! for them please fill out name, birth date, etc for Joe's desired course and click continue, then fill out the same information for Gina). 
  • Once completed, this will bring you to the Registration (which includes Talcott's required medical form). Please fill out all information completely and accurately for each child and Continue to Cart.
  • Please see that all courses desired were chosen and that everything looks correct. If your child's course requires additional materials, they are available to purchase during checkout. If everything is correct, select your payment method and click Complete Order (You do not need to purchase registration insurance, although you might see it at checkout. This insurance has no affiliation with the Science Center, but is offered through Active Network). You will receive a confirmation e-mail within 24 hours. 

REGISTER BY MAIL: You will need a paper application (to pay with a paper check) and you must fill out the medical form. All students must have all completed forms on file with TMSC before their program begins. See our Forms page for all required forms.


MEDICAL FORM: All students must have a completed medical form on file with TMSC before their child's program begins. If you register online, it is part of the registration process.
