Ace Hardware Science makes your local hardware store into a one-stop shop for hands-on scientists of all ages.

Learning science, technology, math and engineering (STEM) is more important now than ever. Hardware Science brings textbook experience of these topics into the real world, to supplement memorization with imagination, and to help students learn to think like scientists. Simple equipment and tools available at Ace make exploration of the world around them accessible and fun.

Live broadcasts from our Hardware Science studio inspire projects and get those mental gears turning, so that Hardware Scientists can work their wonder and see the world in new ways.

In Hardware Science, DIY doesn't just stand for do-it-yourself – it also stands for discover-it-yourself.
