Curiosity Never Closes: We Need Your Support

COVID-19 has interrupted traditional operations, but not our commitment to serving the community. In the time of extended COVID-19 closures and virtual school, PacSci’s mission to ignite curiosity and provide informal science education is more important than ever.

More than 350,000 teachers, students, and families from across the country (and world) have accessed free, educational resources on Curiosity at Home or joined our live programming since March 2020. In summer 2020, PacSci dedicated our Seattle Center campus to onsite Camps for Curious Minds and taught 3,000 campers, in-person and virtually.

We are reaching thousands of students with Virtual Field Trips this year, half of whom are in underserved communities. Teachers, community groups, schools, and students are finding value in our educator-led classes. We have reached our capacity to deliver field trips and are already scheduling classes in 2021. We need your help to be able to continue and expand our work.
