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)
  • Provide 3 Leap Into Science events and 1 Leap Week event (as an organization)
  • 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.  Visit the Leap Into Science website for more information about this program: leap.fi.edu
