We’ll bring our science programs to you.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
A new exhibit at The Lawrence aims to demystify the latest technology and engage visitors’ curiosity about how AI works.
Because we know what engages children, we’ve put together a list of science kits, books, crafts, and more that make excellent gifts or stocking stuffers.
