For the safety of our community and staff, LSC remains closed to the public until further notice. Click here to learn more.
Welcome to LSC in the House, the place where home scientists can conduct experiments, explore the world of LSC’s animals, find amazing movies to watch, and get inspired about science and technology without ever leaving the living room. Check out all the fun at the links below, and be sure to come back often. We will update our experiences regularly while so many of us are sticking close to home.
Please also consider a donation to our emergency operating fund to assist us in the care of our animals and the team members who look after them.
