History & Mission
The Wagner Institute has offered educational programs for children since the turn of the last century. These programs aim to promote children’s interest in science by introducing them to the natural sciences at an early age. Because the Institute’s programs are available at no cost, they are a popular resource for groups throughout the city, especially those in its immediate neighborhood.
