Providing more hands-on, curiosity-charging ways to discover science.
We work tirelessly to nurture and shape each visitor's inherent
curiosity, transforming it into critical thinking and a lifelong
excitement about science. The Museum currently serves more than
300,000 schoolchildren and their chaperones, positioning the Museum
as a national informal science education leader. We aim to serve
this growing number of students by offering memorable, impactful
programs that are rich with science content. These programs
encourage teachers and students to have in-depth, two-way
communication where asking questions, finding answers, and engaging
every sense brings the important role of science to light.
By building a strong foundation of skills for children ages three
to five, then growing and evolving our programs, kids will stay
engaged and curious about science as they enter grade school and
beyond. Children and adults will discover their inner scientists
through innovative, hands-on activities you won't find anywhere
