We Are the City Spotlight on Mission Science Workshop

Mission Science Workshop just celebrated 30 years of serving San Francisco’s children and youth! Congratulations! What do you believe has contributed the most to the organization’s success, and what do you predict for Mission Science Workshop’s future?

Mission Science Workshop has kept true to its essence of “small is beautiful” like our founder Dan Sudran always said. By having small community science centers right where our students live and a small mobile team, we are able to adapt quickly and reach schools and communities that lack meaningful science learning opportunities. We always keep our high-need schools and students with less access to hands-on science experiences as our priority, and we bring them the magic of science in the way that works best for them. Everyone in our spaces learns that they are natural scientists, and that their questions, ideas and observations are valid and wonderful.

“If I had influence with the good fairy … I should ask that her gift to each child in the world would be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life as an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantments of later years, the sterile preoccupation with things that are artificial, the alienation from the sources of our strength.” — Rachel Carson and Dan Sudran
