Leap into Science
Leap into Science is a nationwide program that integrates open-ended science activities with children’s books, designed for children ages 3-10 and their families. We empower educators to offer programs in community settings like libraries, museums, and out-of-school time programs to engage underserved audiences in accessible and familiar settings.
Leap into Science is currently being offered in twenty states, targeting underserved urban and rural communities. To find out where a workshop might be happening in your state visit
The program is administered by The Franklin Institute in partnership with the National Girls Collaborative Project and made possible by the generous support of the National Science Foundation, the Unruh Family Foundation advised fund at the Arizona Community Foundation, and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
