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!
