What's New

On Thursday, May 23, we held our preschool graduations for our future scientists, teachers and doctors in the Digital Adventure Theater: A National Geographic Experience.

In front of a packed audience that included preschoolers' family and friends, the little learners sang and danced to celebrate all that they have learned.

The preschool and education staff thank their students and families for another fantastic school year!

If you would like to enroll your child in Orlando Science Center's Preschool Program or would like to learn more, please call 407.514.2112.

The 15th annual Dr. Ying Science Competition is in the books and two was the lucky number for Brevard County's Sarah Van Sickle of Satellite High School.

Sarah was in last year's contest when she finished as a runner up, but the additional year of research won her the 2013 competition. She was awarded a trophy, a $5,000 cash scholarship plus $1,000 awards for her science teacher and her school.

Her efforts improved on the design of the antenna, which is based on fractal geometry and receives both UHF and VHF frequencies for less money than the cost of a commercial device. Since broadcast television is an important communications tool, this research could enable everyone to have access to multiple over-the-air transmissions at a fraction of the cost. This research would be especially valuable for those living in remote areas, Third World countries or people in post-disaster areas where cable or satellite transmissions are inaccessible.
