About Sidewalk Science Center

The vision of Sidewalk Science Center is to provide resources and programs that make science education readily accessible in public spaces each week. We pride ourselves in our community-focused approach, and have built our entire program from the sidewalk up. SSC operates through your support here on Patreon, from participants at our Sidewalk Science Centers and Star Parties, and funding through our growing program offerings. Your financial support is invested directly into local communities, resources, and educators every single week.

Sidewalk Science Center: ON HIATUS AS OF 01/01/2022
Our flagship program. We travel to public parks 3 to 5 days a week and host family-friendly science experiments and telescope session that engage kids, teens, students, and adults of all ages with a range of familiar concepts. We've prepared physics, optics, magnetism, biology, and other experiments designed specifically for hands-on learning.

Our goal moving forward is to hire paid educators who will operate on a rotation of local locations each month, including a yearly non-local trip, such as the week Sidewalk Science Center spent in Denver, Colorado, back in October 2019.

Second Light: our free telescope rental program. We collect new and used telescopes, refurbish as needed, and loan them out to families and individuals who would like to explore the night from their own home, or wherever they travel! Loans are free for two weeks and can be extended if there is not a waiting list for that telescope.
