We believe in the importance of providing hands-on STEAM learning experiences that resonate with children’s natural curiosity and love of learning. We are active advocates for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) literacy in Connecticut, and utilize our unique resources and expertise in informal STEAM learning to encourage and provide a pathway for all young learners to become STEAM-empowered and informed decision makers in an increasingly technology-driven world.

Our mission is to engage, excite, and educate young learners through experiences and programs that inspire wonder and ignite creativity as the foundation for a lifetime love of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) learning.

Our building has 3 floors of exciting, interactive exhibits to encourage play and learning!

We are conveniently located right off Exit 47 on the Merrit Parkway in North Bridgeport around the corner from the Trumbull Mall and down the street from Sacred Heart University!
