Through employee and community engagement efforts, MilliporeSigma leverages its expertise, culture, passion, and commitment to sparking curiosity in science education in students.

A New Way to SPARKTM Curiosity: The Curiosity Cube

MilliporeSigma’s Curiosity Cube is a 22×10-foot, retrofitted shipping container transformed into a mobile science lab. It features interactive, hands-on science experiments led by our employees. Visitors can ask questions and discuss the possibilities of a future career in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

The Curiosity Cube travels throughout North America and Europe visiting schools, summer camps, and public spaces—including parks, festivals, and museums, to foster engagement in science and an interest in STEM-based careers.
