Mission Statement

ExplorationWorks’ Mission is to foster a curious, scientifically literate citizenry empowered with skills to thrive in the 21st Century. We accomplish this through exceptional programs, engaging exhibits, enduring partnerships, extensive outreach, and educational expertise.

ExplorationWorks Science Center offers exhibits, programs, workshops, classes, and camps for kids, youths, families, seniors/elders, as well as school and community groups. We help meet community needs by partnering with formal education, as a setting for informal learning, a place where families learn together, and as a catalyst and venue for community involvement in education for people from all ages, interests, and walks of life. Historically, strong partnerships have developed with the City of Helena, Carroll College, Helena Public Schools, and other local and statewide organizations. Through collaborations with organizations that reach and serve at-risk and low-income populations, our goal is to be accessible, welcoming and inclusive of all people. Scholarship entry fees, memberships and program tuition are always available.
