Children’s Science Center Lab is an interactive children's museum focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Located at Fair Oaks Mall.
The Children’s Science Center Lab is Northern Virginia’s first interactive museum where children, families and school groups can explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts through fun, engaging hands-on exhibits, activities and programs. In addition to four experience zones with changing exhibits and activities, the Lab includes a flex-space “Garage” for camps, classes, workshops, parties and mini expositions to showcase regional STEM talent in-action among area youth and families. The Children’s Science Center’s mission is to inspire a love of learning STEM by providing unique opportunities to explore, and create.
