Who We Are

Our mission is to support efforts that enable people to reimagine and expand their relationship with science.

Science Sandbox is where innovation comes to grow and expand.

It’s where people from all backgrounds can feel like they belong — where creativity thrives and science resonates.

Science Sandbox champions those seeking to empower others.

We believe science is a vital tool for making decisions that can have wide-ranging, positive effects throughout society, and we aim to center underrepresented perspectives that enrich the practice of science engagement.

We are an active, collaborative partner to our awardees.

From funding to mentorship and networking support to helping build awareness, Science Sandbox scaffolds efforts to innovate.
