Every dollar helps our educators and team provide you with illuminating “aha!” moments through shared experiences at the Science Center. If you believe in our mission, please consider purchasing a membership, gifting a membership or making a donation. Your membership helps the continued development of innovative exhibits, educational programs and events that ignite and sustain a passion for science and technology throughout our community.
