(KDC) is a STEAM education network, focused on creating fun, interactive experiences that inspire a universe of endless possibilities.

Welcome to the Kaleidoscope Discovery Center!

Our mission is to provide opportunities that value science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) through hands-on learning, encouraging imagination, exploration, and creation influencing a brighter tomorrow.
Our outreach programs will come to you if you are in one of the following counties: Phelps, Pulaski, Maries, Dent, Crawford, Gasconade, Osage, and Washington counties.
