Community Science Workshops

Dan Sudran, Founder, leverages discarded technologies as vehicles for exploration and tools for teaching physics concepts.

The CSW Movement

Community Science Workshops are spaces for neighborhood kids to freely explore and create in a context of science and engineering. Founder, Dan Sudran, sparked the idea in his garage in 1991 in what would become the first CSW, Mission Science Workshop, a model for those that followed. There are now over six sites. CSW's offer an alternative approach to more structured programs in STEM. CSW's are committed to providing the space, time, materials, and inspiration for kids to follow their own innate curiosity and human need for adventure in and understanding of the physical world.
