Science Tots

Mission Statement

Our mission is to connect families with the tools and instruction to power early childhood STEAM learning.

About Science Tots

Science Tots is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization started by Erica Peterson in late 2015. Science Tots has served thousands of children and their parents since Erica began teaching small early childhood STEAM classes to families in local community centers and church basements. Today, Science Tots serves families by partnering with large businesses to create and execute events where local daycares and elementary schools are invited to showcase their early childhood STEAM projects. These events are free to the public and local businesses are invited to sponsor individual classroom projects.

You can also find Science Tots at large Pittsburgh festivals like Pittsburgh Maker Faire, EQT Children's Theater Festival, Three Rivers Arts Fest, and many more! In July of 2017, Science Tots and The Neighborhood Ford Store partnered for the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, an event attended by more than 200K people over a single weekend. Upcoming events scheduled for 2018 include the first Beaver County wide Science Tots Fest sponsored by Rep. Jim Marshall and Senator Elder Vogel and four Mommy & Me events featuring Science Tots at the Tanger Outlet in Washington, PA.
