Jack Taylor, a longtime St. Louis philanthropist, donated $2.5 million to the Saint Louis Science Center to help improve science learning opportunities throughout the region.
Through his namesake the Taylor Community Science Resource Center, the Science Center is able to meet one of the metropolitan area’s most critical needs: high-quality science and technology programming and education for teens, educators, parents, and community-based organizations.
