The Saint Louis Science Center has partnered with Tau Beta Pi - a national Engineering Honors Society - to provide STEM engineering-based programs for children in grades 3 through 6. MindSET is a national initiative let by Tau Beta to help students become interested in STEM careers by organizing programs that are both fun and educational.
The Preschool Science Series at the Saint Louis Science Center is the perfect program for young, budding scientists! Preschool-age children and an adult caretaker will explore, investigate, hear stories, and do hands-on science together.
Each session features a different topic, so you'll want to attend often!
As part of National Engineers' Week, the Saint Louis Science Center is hosting Engineering Career Day. Teens, children and their families can check our formula racing cars, local robotics creations and other exciting hands-on activities and demonstrations from local engineering companies, colleges and organizations.
