Science at Home

For more than 75 years, OMSI has been the home of science education for our region. We’ve introduced millions of people to the wonders of our world at the museum and through important educational programs, community outreach efforts, and more.

OMSI is proud to provide informal at-home science education that can be enjoyed by all ages, from anywhere in the world.


Spark Your Curiosity

Explore science from wherever you are, with people in your household or virtually with your friends!
We hope these engaging at-home activities will keep you curious—inspiring you to conduct your own
experiments and do your own research. Share what you're discovering using #ForTheLoveofScience on social.

Science At Home started with one-off, free activities and videos—and it has now expanded to include a program of activities curated by week and resources focused on specific science themes!
