Mission Statement

To create innovative and supportive education activities that will encourage the youth of Kansas City to understand and use science and critical thinking in their careers and everyday lives

Description

The long and rich history of Science Pioneers dates back to 1956 when it became incorporated as a non-profit organization. At that time, Dr. Charles N. Kimball, president of Midwest Research Institute, Kansas City, Missouri, gathered together a distinguished group of industrialists, educators, and scientists in the Greater Kansas City area who were interested in forming an organization to foster, develop, and encourage youth in the study of science. Although Science Pioneers was originally organized to direct and manage the Greater Kansas City Science & Engineering Fair, one of the largest in the nation, Science Pioneers has continuously strive to expand its programs to provide unique opportunities to students and teachers alike. Each year approximately 15,000 individuals participate in Science Pioneers activities.
