Based in Watsonville, Community Science Workshop Network serves as an advocate and resource for sites across California that offer hands-on opportunities for underserved youth to tinker, make and explore the world through science. The goal is to inspire young people and to help them identify as scientists, engineers, problem-solvers and builders. Active participation and engaged learning are the organization’s core values. 

Each Community Science Workshop is a public, open-door space in a specific neighborhood, walking distance to low-income homes and schools. Science exhibits and user-generated content provide inspiration, and tools and materials are available for youth to experiment. Programming includes school visits, after-school classes and summer learning sessions.

In 1991, the first workshop was founded in the garage of a science educator in San Francisco’s Mission District. Today, the network consists of five member sites in communities across California and several affiliated programs across the state and nation.
