STC Kits

What is STC? Science and Technology for Children (STC) is a complete science program for children in grades 1-6. STC Kits are filled with innovative hands-on activities designed to motivate young students. STC Kits were developed by the National Science Resources Center (NSRC). NSRC is operated by the Smithsonian Institution and the National Academy of Sciences to improve the teaching of science in the nation's schools.

Thorough research and development ensures all STC Kits are scientifically accurate and educationally appropriate.
