Science to Change the World



“The winds, the sea, and the moving tides are what they are. If there is wonder and beauty and majesty in them, science will discover these qualities.”


― Rachel Carson




The Science to Change the World Lab offers youth from ages 9 to 12 the opportunity to investigate and explore the UN Global Goals in an inquiry-based hands-on science lab. Using the engineering design cycle, lab members will create innovative projects to address sustainability issues they are passionate about.
