WHO WE ARE

LEAP LAB IS

a Network of  science centers committed to art, science and self-reliance to build thriving communities

SELF-RELIANCE AND COMMUNITY RESILIENCE

To become resilient cities, we must make difficult choices in the years ahead, with scientific fact as our foundation.  LEAP LAB will focus on 5 themes: water, grow, waste, ecology, energy, and community, which broadly adopt all ideas presented in the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  These goals are the clearest path to resilience.

BUILDING

COMMUNITY

When like-minded people share the workplace, a culture of collaboration forms, projects and programs become more powerful, robust, and impactful.

EQUITY IN EDUCATION

Replicable model of informal science learning that uses a co-working environment to create an atmosphere of collaboration, communication and combined action between organizations working on environmental and social justice. Typical museums, zoos, aquariums and science centers are centralized institutions with limited geographic reach.  How often do citizens of small towns get to the big city to visit these places?  Maybe a field trip once in grade school?  LEAP LAB aims to place centers in small towns beyond the reach of these larger institutions.
