Science Enrichment
Outreach

The Science Enrichment Program primarily targets 3rd through 5th grade and consists of a range of in-school, hands-on lessons specifically designed to help students grasp SSA state standards, while fostering a love of science. This series allows ECSC to assist teachers in educating students on abstract concepts, often with materials unavailable to teachers in the school district. With schools often booking on-going lessons, ECSC brought almost 5,000 educational encounters to students in the 2017 school year. This sponsorship supports improvements to curriculum while ECSC maintains current program pricing.

Mobile Planetarium
Currently Sponsored
by ResortQuest

The Earth and Space portion of the Sunshine State Standards is one of the most challenging to teach due to the abundance of abstract concepts students have difficulty understanding. To address this problem, the Emerald Coast Science Center provides students with a hands-on learning experience inside our unique, new portable, digital planetarium. In addition, we also run 24 Planetarium Nights per year in the Museum that are available for the general public to attend.
