Programs and results

What we aim to solve

There is a gap in the school programs in STEM and environmental education. We provide scholarships for schools to attend programs in these areas. We also provide free lectures from researchers for the community. Our work also helps makes the Science Center and the surrounding lands inviting for guests to recreate.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We hope to inspire a sense of wonder, increase understanding of science, and promote stewardship of the environment.

We try to get funding to provide scholarships for students in near Title 1 and Title 1 schools. Our raised funds also help provide free community events.

Under the current center leadership many new things are happening. New free programming is added to the calendar and staff is able to accommodate both in person and virtual field trips.

The center is creating a variety of virtual education programs. They are also creating new in-person educational events and lectures as well.
