Youth Programs

Youth Programs

SCI’s youth programs inspire the next generation of STEM professionals through age-appropriate, hands-on discovery.


  • Girls in Science Initiative

    Through our Girls in Science Initiative, the Science Center of Iowa aims to empower and equip girls in science, technology, engineering and math. Each event is geared to a specific age group with unique opportunities to learn about STEM and meet local female role models.

  • Pint Size Science

    Pint Size Science classes provide stepping stones for early learners to explore science topics and help parents/caregivers feel more confident being a STEM coach for their child. Developmentally appropriate classes are held for little learners ages 9 months to 5 years.

  • Homeschool Programs

    SCI partners with homeschoolers to provide experiences and programming that supplement their science curriculum.

  • Early Childhood Programs

    SCI's early childhood programs inspire wonder and curiosity in young children and give parents/caregivers the confidence to support their child's learning - because attitudes developed early on lay the groundwork for lifelong learning!
