About Us :

Insights El Paso Science Center, Inc. (Insights) first opened its doors in 1980 in donated space in the basement of El Paso Electric Company. Thanks to the Junior League of El Paso and other community leaders, a full hands-on science center “museum” was identified as critical for the future development of our region’s youth.

There is no doubt that Insights was and continues to be an anchor in downtown El Paso’s preservation, revitalization, and cultural arts district efforts. Insights is the only not-for-profit hands-on science and technology center in a 250-mile radius, and serves upwards of 33,000 students, parents, and educators each year. Insights will continue to capitalize on its unique geographic and demographic setting to infuse Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) content – catering to the educational, multicultural, military, and agricultural communities in the region.

Most exhibits are aligned with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) academic requirements of the State of Texas, and have interpretive signage in English and Spanish. Lesson plans are available for some exhibits. Other features of Insights includes Science Saturdays and Summer Discovery Camps.
