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.

As a high school sophomore, Nikhil also conducts research at the Synthetic Reality Lab at the University of Central Florida. He was selected as one of the top 30 middle school science researchers in the country and competed in the Broadcom Masters competition in Washington, D.C., the premiere science and engineering fair for middle school projects. Nikhil’s research project seeks to identify early indicators of cognitive impairment, for instance, the ability to predict the likelihood a person is going to develop Alzheimer’s. His research has earned him first and second place in his region at the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair the past two years.

Anjeli fell in love with science in sixth grade when she took biology for the first time. This year, Anjeli has had the opportunity to conduct research at the University of Florida's Mid-Florida Research & Education Center. She’s created a natural pesticide that repels whiteflies, a pest that affects 90 percent of the acreage of tomato plants. She received an invitation to attend ISWEEEP at the Dr. Nelson Ying Orange County Science Exposition. In addition to research, Anjeli also enjoys reading, playing volleyball and traveling.
