WonderWorks STEM Programs
It is the educational mission of WonderWorks to ignite a passion for science within every visitor. WonderWorks has created, I Think, Therefore I STEM programs to drive home the message that STEM education is paramount to our nation’s ability to remain the world’s leader in innovation and technology. WonderWorks has exclusively focused on physical science and art but is committed to going deeper into STEM education and is building more programs in math, technology & engineering. In 2020, we pivoted to virtual learning with our Virtual Learning Labs that we hope to continue into the future!
