Mission Statement

We transform elementary science education for everyone by teaching students, training teachers, and engaging the scientific community so that every child has access to exciting, high-quality science every day.


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 8 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.
