Walmart Foundation $5 Day was once again a huge success. Visitors of all ages engaged in an inspiring and educational adventure through the Science Center for only $5!

Guests were able to experience this summer’s traveling exhibits "Sportsology" and "Curious George: Let’s Get Curious!", as well as watching things blow up in the live "KaBoom!" show.

None of this would have been possible without the Walmart Foundation’s constant support. Thank you to all those who volunteered and participated!

One small step for man; one giant leap for science!

For the 22nd straight year, Track Shack's Celebration of Running 5k presented by Florida Hospital benefited Orlando Science Center. More than 2,400 runners woke up early and ran 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) to raise money for science education programs at the Science Center.

Race through the photos and remember that it's never too early to start training for next year!

Maker Faire Orlando 2014 will be a two day event!

Maker Faire Orlando is an annual community-organized, family-friendly celebration featuring local do-it-yourself science and technology, art, rockets, robots, crafts, music, hands-on-activities, and more. It’s a place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning.

The individuals behind these exhibits are known as “Makers” and they range from tech-enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. Makers are of all ages and come from many backgrounds. They all share a love for innovation and creativity, as well as an educational spirit to inspire and encourage new Makers. Maker Faire Orlando features displays and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.
