Mission Statement

The Children’s Science Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to filling the gap in Northern Virginia with a permanent, world-class interactive exploration center that incorporates traditional museum exhibits with cutting edge discovery experiences. Vision: to create a world class children’s science museum. Mission: to instill a love of learning STEM in all children by providing unique opportunities to explore, create, and be inspired. Core Values: Community, Fun, Excellence, Innovation, Leadership

Description

The Children’s Science Center Lab is an interactive exploration center where children, families, and school groups can learn about and experience fun science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) principles. Designed and fabricated by children’s museum and science center experts, the Lab includes both traditional interactive exhibits and dynamic platforms for learning with activities that change frequently.

The Lab experience focuses on children ages 2 and up via collaborative learning within a family or a school group. The facility is especially focused on preschool and elementary aged visitors, but also great fun for a playful, inquisitive, hands-on oriented tween, or teen.

We are also developing a full-scale Children’s Science Center which will be a world-class, STEM-focused, accessible, children’s museum with activities and exhibits centered around six main exploration zones [the universe, the earth, the city, transportation, information technology and the human body]. It will be constructed on donated land at the Kincora development in Dulles, Virginia facing Route 28 North at the Nokes Boulevard West exit, approximately 4 miles north of Dulles Airport. The museum site plan allows for up to 70,000 square foot museum facility which will be built in phases over time. The main building sized at over 30,000 square feet and is currently in the planning stage.
