Science at Home

Hip, hip, hooray to all of our brave nurses, doctors, researchers, statisticians, engineers and so many others battling on the frontlines to keep us all safe. We now know more than ever, the important role science, technology, engineering and math plays in solving our current health crisis. Our mission to inspire the next generation to pursue the STEM fields of study to become the problem solvers of tomorrow is even more powerful.

As we continue to keep our community safe by staying at home, we wanted to do our part in continuing the learning and the fun! Powerhouse Science Center is pleased to bring science directly into your living room, laundry room, kitchen, under the table, and in the backyard with our new digital programs!

Catch a new Science Storytime on Mondays, Try It! Science on Wednesdays and Night Sky Minute Fridays!
