Most people look at the Science Center as a fun and educational place to go on a Saturday afternoon...
What they might not realize is that we’re also trusted partners to the school systems of the areas we serve. Our educational programs supplement traditional classroom learning with a valuable informal education and serve to build on the foundation of knowledge kids gain in school. Most importantly, they further the mission of increasing competency in S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) competency.
Our educational programs include:
- Field Trips
- Off-Site Programs
- School Break Camps
- Summer Camps & Academy
- Science Competitions
- Homeschool Programs
- Scout Programs
- And much more
These activities enhance classroom experience and provide students with a different way of looking at science, math and technology.

Cathleen was inspired to pursue her passion for scientific research after reaching the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair as a freshman in 2013. She placed second in the state with her 2015 project, “Statistical Analysis of the Effects of Temperature on Incubation Lengths of Caretta caretta.” The high school junior will attend the International Sustainable World Energy Engineering Environment Project Olympiad, the world’s largest international science fair, this May. She plans to continue following her love for math and science with the ultimate goal of becoming a pediatrician.
