Headwaters Science Center has a mission to provide intellectual stimulation and enjoyment for children, adults, and educational organizations in northern Minnesota using hands-on science and technology exhibits and programs. Our vision is to inspire scientific discovery and love of learning for all. Thank you for your participation in fulfilling our mission and vision.


HSC first opened its doors in July 1993 with a few home-made exhibits and a small gift store. By March 1994, eleven large Science Carnival exhibits had arrived from Pacific Science Center and HSC celebrated the formal opening of its exhibit hall. Click here for our full history.
