    Note to SCI Visitors: Please be aware of school group attendance, which could impact your visit. Today's school group traffic is expected to be LOW. To avoid these groups, plan your visit later in the day! Schools typically depart the building by 2:00 pm.

  • Our youngest visitors can bring their imaginations as an SCI Programs Team member reads under the starry skies.

  • Young visitors can explore how the human body works with a large, soft sculpture doll.

  • Locate constellations and planets, and hear myths of the night sky in this live planetarium program. Program and location subject to change.

  • Meet and get the chance to touch some of SCI’s resident reptiles and amphibians.

  • Come check out the colorful, ooey-gooey and other fun experiments we'll mix up.  Program and location subject to change.

  • Pint Size Science (PSS) classes provide stepping stones for early learners to explore science topics and help parents/caregivers feel more confident being a STEM coach for their child.

    PSS: Preschool Edition is designed for little learners ages 3 to 5.

    This week's theme is Fish & Streams, a part of the two-month Homes & Habitats series.

  • As we live, work and play, we are constantly sensing, processing and interpreting information about the three-dimensional world around us. Although this comes naturally to humans, it's more complicated for computers.

    Join Dr. Tyler Bell, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Iowa, to explore the field of 3D imaging and learn how researchers are enabling computers to sense, virtually replicate, understand and augment the world around us. Discover the real-life application of this research, such as virtual reality, real-time 3D video calls and even a large-scale project that was recently installed at SCI.

    This event is free and open to the public.
