Science Central recognizes that our Mission to be a regional resource that provides inspiring and fun hands-on science education for all people of all ages is as important as your health and safety.

As we begin making plans, with the goal of being able to reopen soon, Science Central is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for staff and our visitors, even as we navigate through this challenging time.

Upon reopening we would hope that your families and friends see us as a safe and engaging venue of informal science education. Let’s all use the best defense we have, knowledge. Let’s remember that the COVID-19 virus is still with us and just as concerning as before the state put into place a measured return to a ‘new’ normal. Join with us in fighting this international crisis.

We encourage our community to be aware of your behavior, be safe in your interactions and know what your choices are before engaging. Practice social distancing by putting space between yourself and others. Continue to practice healthy habits to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Science Fair Recognition Day!

Many great scientists get their start by participating in their school's Science Fair. Whether Science Fair participants win or lose really doesn't matter. What matters is that they've learned something, and that they have piqued a long-term interest in science!

Every year in March, Science Central celebrates Science Fair Recognition Day. We honor two student projects from our local schools, inviting the students to share their projects with Science Central visitors. These projects didn't advance on to regional competition, but they exemplify the hard work and learning that comes about from Science Fair participation.
