About

Science is not just a class you take in high school.  Science is in everything around you: the flowers and trees; your own body; the components in your smartphone; and the stars beyond the skies.  Most importantly, science is a way of thinking, a way of infinite curiosity, and a way to innovate for a better world.

At Science Couture Labs, we aim to:
1) promote scientific literacy and logical reasoning
2) inspire kids and adults to participate and consider careers in science and technology
3) make smart the new cool

Science Couture Labs is a blog about experimental ideas for science outreach in all kinds of mediums, especially with new technologies.  Here, we will share our projects as well as highlight the amazing works by others. 

Feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, or collaboration proposals at info@scicouture.com.
