SCI Blog

At the Science Center of Iowa, our goal is to be a quality community resource for informal science learning where children, families, school groups and individuals of all ages come to explore science and technology.

To continue the learning outside our building, we bring you the SCI blog! Our knowledgeable staff, along with special guests and local scientists, will give you a behind-the-scenes look at SCI activities, in-depth information about science events and STEM connections in the Des Moines area.

She is a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (certified through Balance Yoga Lounge in Ankeny, IA). Rachel incorporates breath and meditation, along with asana practice, to create a gentle and mindful class. Her classes are a quiet retreat, offering time for each student to peacefully find their breath and create their own space to practice.
