The Citizen Science Lab creates science pipelines for diverse and marginalized communities through life changing hands-on STEM experiences!

The Citizen Science Lab is Pittsburgh’s first community life sciences laboratory where interactive learning and STEM enrichment fuel enthusiasm for all things science.   We are the only STEM nonprofit founded by a black research biologist and focus on creating  science literate communities through fun and engaging hands-on STEM experiences.

We are a nonprofit OPEN TO ALL to observe, analyze, and explore the life sciences, yet at the heart of our mission is to increase the number of underrepresented groups in STEM.
