Support the Mission of North Dakota's Gateway to Science

As a non-profit, our organizational programming and education outreach is dependent on donations. When you donate to North Dakota’s Gateway to Science, you help inspire the discovery of science through hands-on experiences. Your generosity empowers learners of all ages, backgrounds, and perspectives to learn STEM skills, like critical thinking and creative problem solving, which reach far beyond our galleries and educational programs. 



Donate to Support Upcoming Projects 

  1. Construction of our new outdoor classroom.  
  2. Reaching a record number of students across the state through Gateway to Science on the Go 
  3. Growing capacity and events for early childhood learners 
  4. Developing new programming to reach adult learners 
  5. Adding new exhibits to the gallery to make learning even more accessible and engaging through hands-on experiences.  
  6. Increasing center capacity to welcome an anticipated 125,000 visitors to the gallery and exhibits in 2024. 


Donations Power Our Programs  

Gateway to Science on the Go travels North Dakota offering engaging, hands-on learning experiences for K-12 students in science, technology, engineering, and math that cultivates interest in STEM. In 2023, Gateway to Science on the Go reached over 10,000 students statewide and traveled to every geographical region of the state. 

Preschool Discovery Hour is a FREE-to-the-public program where children and caregivers can participate in hands-on activities and explore concepts together. 

After-school, mini, and summer camps are offered to students grades 1-9. Students explore Building Systems, Robotics, Aviation, Drones, Auto Technology, Agriculture, and more. 

Community events offer hands-on scientific discovery for community members of all ages. We’re always planning something new and growing our community event programming, including our Visiting Scientist Series and adult programming.  


Donations Through Matching Gifts Programs

You may be able to double your donation to North Dakota’s Gateway to Science. Many employers offer matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify for a match.
