Orlando Science Center’s mission is to inspire science learning for life, which it exemplifies though efforts within and outside its walls.

Through iconic learning experiences, mentoring and hands-on challenge-based activities, the Science Center strives to create lasting impacts on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to develop the next generation of creative innovators.

Dedicated to inspiring tomorrow’s scientists, technicians, inventors, educators and original thinkers, the Science Center provides teacher professional development to PreK-12 educators to equip them through hands-on trainings with increased STEM literacy skills and an increased ability to implement STEM activities with learners. The Science Center collaborates with educators to help tomorrow’s innovators develop strong skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, and teamwork they need to succeed in school and beyond.

Fully accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Science Center ranks as one of the most popular museum destinations in the region. Having served more than 12 million people since its inception in 1955, it offers rich resources for lifelong learning and public engagement.

Orlando Science Center has become an endorsed site to provide Engineering is Elementary (EiE) Professional Development Workshops to the southeast. Our certified trainers can travel to any school in the state of Florida. Intensive hands-on training shows teachers first-hand how to embed this curriculum into the classroom and provides the necessary support for success. Each of the trainings will cover one unit of EIE curriculum that the teachers will subsequently be able to implement in their own classroom.
