Mission Statement

Our mission is to inspire a love of learning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by providing unique opportunities to explore and create. Our vision is to create a world-class interactive science center that ignites the curiosity in all of us. Our core values - Community, Fun, Excellence, Innovation, and Leadership - serve as guiding principles as we fulfill our mission, engage with our stakeholders, and recruit new employees and volunteers.


The Children’s Science Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and interactive museum where children, families, and school groups can explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts through fun, engaging, hands-on exhibits, activities, and programs. We serve over 70,000 visitors a year at the Children’s Science Center Lab at Fair Oaks Mall and through our community programs delivered to schools, libraries, and STEM festivals across Northern Virginia.
