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. We have a variety of hands-on experiences to choose from that will engage learners of every age. 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. Due to ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, masks must be worn while visiting the PROMISE lab.

We hope to see you soon.
