Fall in Love With Science

The Science Center will help spark, develop and grow an understanding and appreciation that science is everything and everything is science. Imagine creating art and music using real-time internet data, constructing an outpost on the moon, investigating earth’s habitats by land, air, and sea, and harnessing the power of the human brain — all in one day. Soon enough, you won't have to imagine.
