Science Resource Center

Hands-on Science Learning

Doing science sparks curiosity and helps students discover the world and themselves in new and exciting ways. In the Science Resource Center (SRC), we work to bring the power of scientific discovery to dozens of schools across Southeast Washington. 

The SRC provides ready-to-use science kits for students in kindergarten through fifth grade in nearly 20 school districts. Kits include hands-on, inquiry-based activities to help students learn about physical sciences, life sciences, and earth and space. We also coach teachers on the best ways to use the science kits in their classrooms.

The SRC is supported by Battelle Legacy grants, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), Washington State Leadership and Assistance for Science Education Reform (LASER), and participating school districts.
