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.

Keeping things simple would be counter-productive in this competition!
The 2013 Kinetic Challenge took place Saturday, Feb. 16 as 40 teams comprised of 5th–8th graders competed for prizes including $500 for Best in Fair!
Participants transformed ordinary and found objects into an artistic kinetic sculpture, also called a Rube Goldberg machine.
Congratulations to our winners!
