Description:

We are proud to have served 130,000+ curious kids since opening the one and only Curiosity Zone in Ashburn, VA in 2005.

Curiosity Zone is a kid-sized science lab for kids ages 2-11. Our classes build on kids’ natural curiosity, using familiar, fun, hands-on activities to inspire them to think creatively about the world around them, and to lay a foundation for life-long learning in science, math and beyond.

Unlike our competitors, we teach kids to use the scientific method, and connect fun science to actual learning by layering concepts week after week, month after month. We also teach the sciences as a connected whole (e.g., how physics and chemistry can be applied together to solve a problem), instead of focusing on each separately. Our full program takes 4 years to complete (though classes can be taken in 10 week segments); kids then graduate to an advanced science program that runs for another 4 years, complete with DNA extractions, dissections and more.

After teaching for more than 10 years, we have tremendous anecdotal evidence of our success in inspiring and educating young scientists. Please take a minute to read a few of our unsolicited customer stories.
