Our mission is to inspire future generations of scientists and engineers! How do we accomplish that? First, we built a world class, state-of-the-art facility complete with laboratory, technology makerspace and classroom. Second, we are a year-round learning center with staff that still teaches science in schools, giving us the advantage of being able to constantly test and develop the best curriculum in the industry! Third, we are the only science education center that promotes "three dimensional" learning. Three dimensional learning integrates different science, technology, and engineering principles in each of our programs into a hands-on, project-based learning approach. For example, we apply science and engineering concepts to other studies, such as science in music and the arts, the relationship between physics and engineering, or chemistry and environmental science, etc. With this multi-disciplinary approach, we can better develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills in our students.
And finally, our programs are the only ones that integrate the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into the curriculum!
