Why We Celebrate Science
We’re building a community that shares our love of science by creating connections through innovative programs, authentic experiences, and advocacy for our mission.
We believe that science forms a foundation for lifelong learning and curiosity. Our signature brand of science education celebrates the “how come?” and the “what if?’’ And we celebrate a collective exploration that leads to a shared sense of discovery. Let’s science.
