Leap into Science is a nationwide program developed by The Franklin Institute Science Museum that integrates open-ended science activities with children’s books, designed for children ages 3-10 and their families. The program empowers educators to offer workshops in community settings like libraries, museums, and out-of-school time programs to engage underserved audiences in accessible and familiar settings.

Organizations participating in Leap into Science will:

  • Send a group of two or more educators (whenever possible) to a 4-hour of training on the high-quality science and literacy curriculum
  • Receive ongoing support and become a part of a Leap into Science National Network
  • Have access to the national Leap into Science leadership team and online resources
  • Participate in ongoing evaluation activities (i.e. surveys, interviews, site visits)
  • Receive one set of curriculum and materials kit per organization (valued at $300)

Leap into Science is funded by National Science Foundation, and led by The Franklin Institute and The National Girls Collaborative Project.
