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.

Zachary Loeb is a sophomore enrolled in the Cambridge University program at Eau Gallie High School in Melbourne, Fla. He has conducted research on endocrine disrupting compounds and their effects on the aquatic environment for the past three years. Zachary has a strong interest in marine biology, green chemistry and finding solutions to prevent and eliminate pollutants that contaminate the environment.

Zachary has presented his research to increase awareness of the critical issue of EDCs at regional, state and international competitions and has received numerous awards.

In addition to science, Zachary enjoys studying history and business as well as fishing, baseball and varsity swimming. It is Zachary’s goal after college to create a business providing and applying solutions for the prevention and elimination of pollution.
