Community Programs

The Children’s Science Center brings its hands-on STEM activities to various community venues in our own signature events or in partnership with other organizations such as the National Building Museum’s Discover Engineering Family Day, USA Science and Engineering Festival, NoVa MiniMaker Faire, and National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy location.
