Join the City of Fresno in celebrating the grand opening of the Fresno Community Science Workshop’s new home at the Highway City Park in Northwest Fresno. The new workshop will be opening in what was a previously shuttered park building in the Highway City neighborhood and offering the full suite of CSW programs, including after-school drop-in tinkering, summer camps, and more…

The Fresno Community Science Workshop program will be expanding into a new space roughly 4 times the size of the previous workshop space, which will feature office space for CSW staff, an outdoor woodshop area, and an adjacent catch-pool greenspace, in addition to the pre-existing workshop, tinkering, electronics and nature center stations.
