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.

Some kind words after a recent school overnight trip...
I just want to get back with you about our overnight stay.
Our kids had a "BALL"!!!!! Nothing but raves from students and parents about the trip. It was the biggest hit with a field trip at our school I think ever. I have had so many students ask me how soon we are going back. There was one parent that said before the trip that her daughter was so excited that she compared it to "waiting for Santa".
Again, thanks so much for such a great and memorable experience. I have made a very positive report to our district elementary science coordinator... It also will be making the local newspapers.
