What We Do

Our objective is to increase community engagement in science education, public health, and sustainability.

Science Alive

The Science Alive program provides hands-on, science-based experiences for schools, community centers, and public venues.


The Unleaded program increases awareness about lead in our environment and works to reduce lead exposure through lead education, sharing community resources, and collaborating with community partners.

Urban Garden Project

The Urban Garden Project empowers urban communities to sustainably grow their own food and make food choices that benefit their health and the environment.
