Our vision: To inspire and motivate our children to achieve their full potential in the fields of science, technology, medicine and engineering.
The Welcome to Science Initiative helps children achieve their full potential in science by creating learning experiences inside and outside the classroom and removing barriers that exclude them from participating. Our unique youth-centered approach means we support students and everyone involved in their success -- families, educators, schools and communities -- in these ways:
Connect science to children wherever they are. We support science programming in neighborhoods and outside the classroom with out-of-school-time programs like after-school science clubs, weekend youth programs and summer learning opportunities, along with engaging field trip experiences such as curriculum-linked Learning Labs and hands-on workshops that inspire creativity and innovation.
