The Citizen Science Lab creates science pipelines for diverse and marginalized communities through life changing hands-on STEM experiences!
The Citizen Science Lab is Pittsburgh’s first community life sciences laboratory where interactive learning and STEM enrichment fuel enthusiasm for all things science. We are the only STEM nonprofit founded by a black research biologist and focus on creating science literate communities through fun and engaging hands-on STEM experiences.
We are a nonprofit OPEN TO ALL to observe, analyze, and explore the life sciences, yet at the heart of our mission is to increase the number of underrepresented groups in STEM.
What People Are Saying
Fun and full of learning. Great staff and good parking.
My grandchild has been going to the Citizens Science Lab for approximately three years. The broad array of stem classes they have taught has helped develop her mind. She doesn’t fear trying to accomplish what may be challenging for many because they have mentored her and made learning science fun. Their robotics program is a first rate program.
We love the Citizen Science Lab programs. They have been excellent enrichment experiences for our home-education science program. My kids are always so excited to get their boxes of materials and come bounding downstairs on the days of their classes unable to wait for them to begin. The instructors are caring, engaging, and invested in the kids’ learning experiences. I love seeing my kids so psyched for STEM learning.
A great place to learn and connect with other budding scientists. We have participated in many of there classes and a summer camp. We are never disappointed with the kindness of the teachers and the level of information given. It is a great learning resource in Pittsburgh.
A fantastic resource for experiential learning! The workshops are terrific!
