A New Beginning:

Gateway to Science will construct a new children’s science center to increase our capacity to offer high quality activities and exhibits for teachers, students and the general public. In an expanded facility, Gateway to Science will offer a greater variety of informal science learning opportunities, which include interactive exhibits, unique programs and special events.

Focus on STEM Careers:

A state-of-the-art science center will focus on the future of jobs and technology, making connections between students’ interest in science and potential career choices. We will be training the future workforce for science/technology careers.
