Support Your Science Center • Ways to Help OSC and Local Businesses in Tough Times

Now more than ever, we need your help! Check out a few ways to support your Science Center and the Central Florida community.

Orlando Science Center has been open since June 15 after having been closed for the prior three months. Most of our revenue-generating programs were canceled or postponed during that time.
 
We have modified our experience with new health and safety guidelines, which includes limiting occupancy. Since summer is historically our busiest time of the year, these changes, and the current situation, greatly restrict our ability to recover these lost funds.
 
We need your help to keep the Science Center moving full STEAM ahead.
 
We know everyone is facing challenges right now, but if you are able to support Orlando Science Center through any of the following ways, we would be so grateful.

Get, gift, or renew a membership
