Inspiring Kids with Hands-on STEM Programs

At the center of Sanford Research in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, lives a high-tech classroom space: the PROMISE Community Laboratory. There, we deliver STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) experiences to K-12 students and work to inspire tomorrow’s innovators and problem solvers.

We invite you and your group to visit us. Our educators will create on-site, hands-on science activities to meet the needs and abilities of your K-12 students. The visit concludes with a tour of the Sanford Research facility. You’ll see professional researchers in action and show aspiring scientists what a real lab looks like.

The lab is open to public and private school classes, after-school programs and community groups. We can host up to 24 learners. Every student with a spark of curiosity and an eagerness to learn is welcome.

Important Update: The PROMISE lab is not able to accommodate groups in our facility due to COVID-19 guidelines.  However, we would love to visit your classroom digitally through Zoom.  If you would like to set up a digital visit, please fill out the visit request form with as much information as you can.  An educator from the PROMISE team will contact you to set up the visit.
