For 26 years, Mission Science Workshop has provided hands-on science activities for students and families from SF's highest-need schools and communities. At our neighborhood workshops, students can experiment, tinker, explore and build in programs that are free or as low cost as possible. We believe that engaging students in these programs activates their sense of curiosity and wonder to create authentic learning experiences. 

We currently serve over 15,000 SF students from 40 public schools and education-enrichment organizations. Join us in our mission to make sure ALL students have access to hands-on, community science in their neighborhoods! 

Mission Science Workshop is a fiscally sponsored by Community Initiatives , a 501(c)3 non-profit.
