Science Central, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization, has provided a hands-on fun learning environment for more than 20 years. Through our 200 permanent hands-on exhibits, temporary exhibitions, school tours, distance learning programs and weekend public events, we bring the excitement of science and technology to 145,000 children and adults annually.
Why is Science Central important to the Fort Wayne community? Sure, it’s a fun place to bring the kids when the weather is rotten. But at its core, Science Central is much, much more than just a place to play. Science Central is a catalyst for learning, and it’s a catalyst for learning the most important subjects that employers will need our kids to know to perform work in the future – science, technology, engineering and math, or as they are commonly called, STEM. Careers in STEM are among the fastest growing fields in the nation. However, the United States is trailing behind the rest of the world when it comes to preparing students for success in these fields.
Science Central is located at 1950 N. Clinton St., Fort Wayne, IN 46805. For more information, contact Science Central at 260-424-2400 or visit www.ScienceCentral.org.
