Today, the Orlando Science Center held the Inspire Science Breakfast. The event is an opportunity to celebrate the Science Center's role as a vital community resource that ignites the spark for tomorrow's leaders in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
The 2013 edition featured special guests that truly exemplify the Science Center's mission to inspire science learning for life. Dr. Morgan Cable, the first-ever winner of the Dr. Ying Competition, was present to speak to the power the Science Center has in inspiring future scientists, doctors and teachers.
The Orlando Science Center also paid tribute to a man that has given so much via knowledge, scientific discovery and philanthropy as Dr. Nelson Ying became the first-ever recipient of the President's Star Maker Award.
Guests had an opportunity to get involved by making a donation, pledging to volunteer and sharing the vision of the Science Center in our community. You, too, can make a difference just as they did. To start, explore the "Support' section of our website.
