Our world is headed full STEAM to the future. Your support makes our mission possible.

Donations play an integral part in the nonprofit mission of the Saint Louis Science Center. For more than three decades we’ve been proud to serve the St. Louis community with open, accessible STEAM—science, technology, engineering, art and math—learning experiences that empower everyone to better understand our world today and see how science has the potential to shape our world for the future.

When you make a gift to the Science Center, you’re supporting the hands-on science learning galleries like GROW, GameXPloration and more, impactful events like SciFest and First Friday, as well as community programs and outreach efforts like Community Science and the Youth Exploring Science Program, inviting people of all ages and backgrounds to discover a lifelong interest in science and technology.

More importantly, you’re helping to provide access to the wonders of science and technology and welcome everyone to ask the curious questions that can lead to a lifetime of discovery.

Donate to Youth Exploring Science
Give Now

For more than 20 years, our Youth Exploring Science (YES) program has worked with underserved teens throughout their high school years to increase interest in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM). The YES teens work with our educators and STEAM professionals in the community to gain professional, academic and real-world skills that assist in building self-confidence and personal success.

We work with community-based organizations that are committed to serving low-income families throughout the St. Louis area to recruit YES teens. Once recruited, the teens work directly with these organizations and our community partners to help facilitate science events and activities.

The YES program invites everyone to help create a more connected world through the power of teaching, mentoring and volunteering. Many of our YES program alumni return to volunteer and inspire the next generation of YES teens to discover their own genius.

Donate to the Bridge to Future Campaign
Give Now

In 2010, the Science Center embarked on the Bridge to the Future Campaign to support new and renewed facilities, exhibits and expanded education programs supporting science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM). We have raised over $55 million dollars thanks to you, our generous donors, members and partners throughout the community.

The Campaign has funded over 110,000 square feet of new space and 64,00 square feet of newly created and renovated exhibits including GROW, our exhibit space Boeing Hall, the Makerspace gallery and more. We have expanded our STEAM educational programs to ensure our region is prepared to lead in a global economy driven by science and technology.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us achieve our $60 million-dollar goal. When you support the Science Center’s Bridge to the Future Campaign, your generous gift makes the difference as we begin the next phase of the Campaign to transform the guest experience, introduce new technologies and celebrate the scientific and technological legacy of the St. Louis community. Your support makes a lasting impact by bringing a new century of science and technology learning to our region now and into the future.

Make a gift to Bridge to the Future.

Each summer the Science Center offers Science Blast Day Camps. These camps provide children aged 4-16 an opportunity to explore, create and discover science and technology in innovative and unique ways. Camps are led by highly trained counselors and educators who are passionate about teaching the next generation of scientists, engineers, innovators and mathematicians.

We want to make our camps available to all children regardless of their backgrounds, and to do this we provide a limited number of need-based scholarships to our campers.

Your support could provide a child with the opportunity to explore subjects from dinosaurs to aerospace. Your gift could help spark a million questions in a child’s mind leading to a lifetime of discoveries.
