As a nonprofit organization and a free museum in the St. Louis community, the Science Center relies on members and donors to provide vital support for both educational programming and the Science Center’s daily operation. As a member, you play an important part in making our mission possible, and we thank you for your support.
While the St. Louis community and the world are still dealing with the devastating effects of COVID-19, it’s important to remember that our mission to ignite and sustain lifelong science and technology learning never stops.
American author and scientist Carl Sagan once described science as a candle in the dark. If you or anyone you know is able, a donation of any size can make a big impact on keeping our community connected with science and technology learning and ensuring that the candle of science burns bright not just for today but long into the future.
The Science Center’s Annual Fund is the engine that powers everything we do—from our free public events and Amazing Science Demonstrations shown at Energy Stage to our educator outreach and development programs. The Annual Fund is also the resource that enables our over 200 mission-driven educators, STEM professionals and behind-the-scenes colleagues to connect with the community every day.
Youth Exploring Science
For over 20 years, the Youth Exploring Science (YES) program has enabled at-risk teens to build a transformative interest in science and technology. Working closely with educators and STEM professionals, YES teens gain academic and real-world experience and skills to pursue STEM careers.
Supporting memberships bring an enhanced level of support for our education programs, outreach efforts, and daily operation. In addition to regular member benefits, Supporting Members enjoy unique ways to engage with the Science Center through special previews and events.
