POP-UP Science: Making It Real with the Children’s Science CenterChildren’s Science Center has been taking Virginia by storm with their interactive workshops and demonstrations of crazy chemical reactions, preposterous physics, tricky technology and more! Now they’re at the Smithsonian with a special show that puts science center stage and you in the spotlight. Through the use of exciting, interactive experiments, they educate and inspire audiences about the importance of STEM education without them even knowing it.  

The Children's Science Center is a hands-on, interactive museum being planned for Northern Virginia. Today, their ‘Museum Without Walls’ Program brings hands-on science activities to thousands of children in our area, allowing them to fulfill their mission before the doors open, to instill a love of learning STEM in all children by providing unique opportunities to explore, create, and be inspired.
