How We Got Started
In January 2005, our founder, Mary Porter Green, opened Curiosity Zone, a kid-sized science lab located in a suburb of Washington, D.C.. It was an instant success, and the years since have been an amazing ride. Our hardworking little company has brought in millions of dollars in revenue, launched a second website called the Experiment Exchange, won exciting awards, been profiled in major newspapers, done 40+ live TV science segments for WJLA D.C. (ABC), had Fox News (D.C.) broadcast live from the lab (twice), co-produced a children's music album and musical stage show with Grammy Award winners (featured by USAToday!), and provided programs for young children at various Smithsonian museums, science centers, and large regional festivals.
Most importantly, our programming, curriculum and content have engaged hundreds of thousands of curious kids.
