Who We Are:
The mission of the Children’s Science Explorium is to inspire young learners’ natural curiosity of the physical world through exploration and inquiry. We strive to increase public understanding and interest of science and technology through interactive exhibits and hands-on programs. We encourage family learning and enrichment through community involvement and life-long learning opportunities.
The CSE works to achieve this mission by:
The Children’s Science Explorium is a hands-on science center designed for children ages 5 – 12 and their caregivers. Approximately 4,000 square feet is dedicated to hands-on exhibitry pertaining to the physical sciences. Additional space is devoted to education, including an indoor classroom and several outdoor teaching areas.
