School Visits

The Science Center of Iowa brings learning to life through hands-on experience platforms and dynamic demonstrations.

Let the Science Center extend the work that is being done in your classroom through a meaningful experience of our exhibit plaforms, live programs & Star Theater Planetarium shows which allows your students opportunities to expand their critical thinking, build life skills and create lasting memories!

On a visit to SCI, your students can:

  • Explore & get hands on science in the interactive exhibits inside SCI's Experience Platform
  • Watch a 20-minute Live Science Program by SCI's Programs Team
  • Get your hands on science with a Discovery Lab or Innovation Lab Workshop

SCI's programming supports the Iowa Core and National Science Standards – and it's accurate, relevant and fun!

Our Science Learning Team is experienced in best practices for interactive, inquiry-based learning to provide your students with quality education while enhancing critical thinking skills. Your SCI experience will reflect the quality of our fully accredited institution, endorsed by AAM and ASTC.

Explore SCI before and after you visit with these educational (and fun!) activities and resources for students of all ages:
