In 2018, only 55% of 5th grade students and 50% of 8th grade students in Florida passed the Statewide Science Assessment portion of the Florida Standards Assessment. Science education is crucial--and with your support, we can provide services to kids, students, and teachers through our hands-on science center and educational programs. You can help us reach our goal to make a positive impact, foster a scientifically engaged community, and show how science shapes the world around us.


$25 will provide a Girls Engaged in Making (GEM) Workshop scholarship for one young woman and allow her the chance to pursue STEM topics; fields in which women are vastly underrepresented.


$50 allows us to buy an additional Ozobot, a coding robot that comes with infinite ways to play, create, and share. Ozobots give our students a chance to learn how to code and work with robotics.


$100 sends 18 students on a field trip to our center where they can interact with our museum exhibits, experience hands-on learning, and even get an up-close encounter with our animals.


$250 provides one school with a Bioblitz, a chance for students to explore the biodiverisity in their school's location and learn about how to collect and classify a variety of species and specimens.


$500 furnishes our robotics workshops with a new Lego Mindstorms EV3 robot to inspire our students to build, program, and play while learning exciting computer science concepts.
