Mission Statement

Inspiring a passion for science in the leaders of tomorrow.

Description

Leveraging children's inherent curiosity through hands-on experiments, in small groups, guided by scientist and engineer volunteers

Science education must be relevant, exciting, and experiential. We leverage the natural curiosity and creativity of elementary school-aged children.

Volunteer groups of engineers and scientists (1 adult per 5 children) bring "cool" hands-on experiments to the classroom and allow children to explore on their own while asking directed questions to guide their thought processes and investigations. Experiments draw on children's everyday experiences to show them that science is all around them and is fun.
