Our world is headed


Every day, STEAM—science, technology, engineering, art and math—plays a central role in our lives. From the smartphones we carry, to the medicines that keep us healthy, to the food that we eat and the planet we live on, science and technology intersect with just about everything, and STEAM’s impact is only increasing.

Supporters like you enable the Science Center to connect with over 1 million guests each year through open science galleries like GROW, GameXPloration and the Life Science Lab, as well as programs like SciFest and First Friday, our new Esports Program, our nationally recognized Youth Exploring Science (YES) Program and Community Science.

Discover more about STEAM’s role in our world and how your support for the Science Center makes a difference for science and technology learning for today…and for the future.


On November 30, bring the power of your generosity to STEAM education in the St. Louis region.
Make a gift to the Science Center for Giving Tuesday and help support impactful science and technology learning experiences as our world heads full STEAM to the future.
