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.

Alexandra is competing in her second Dr. Ying Science Competition as only a sophomore. Alexandra’s project, now in its fourth year, focuses on algae biofuel and demonstrates her commitment to sustainability. Alexandra has been fortunate to receive many awards for her science fair projects, including best of show in her region at the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair. She also placed at the International Science Fair last year in Los Angeles. Because of her love of science, she volunteers at elementary schools as a mentor to inspire younger children to participate in science activities.
