Inspire the next generation

In a fast-advancing world, STEM education is crucial--and with your support, we can provide services to children, adults, 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 everyone how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics shape 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 helps feed and house several of our animal ambassadors for one month. These animals provide students and guests the opportunity to learn about how various species survive in the wild while providing a one-of-a-kind, up close experience.

$250 provides a mobile planetarium to underserved youth, giving students the opportunity to discover our solar system in a setting that helps set them up for success by learning difficult state standards in a fun and memorable atmosphere.

$500 sends 50 students on a field trip to our center where they can interact with our museum exhibits, experience hands-on learning, receive unique STEM lessons, and even get an up-close encounter with our animals.
