Who would have guessed 25 years ago that a hands-on science center in Aurora, Nebraska would now be serving over 200,000 people each year? By following the mission established by Harold “Doc” Edgerton and expanding our outreach, we have carried on Doc’s legacy of lifelong learning; instilling and nurturing in people of all ages the joy of scientific discovery and exploration through hands-on learning experiences.
Over the years, we have served hundreds of thousands of students, teachers and other individuals with our state-of-the-art STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) programs. Our focus and emphasis in STEAM studies is critically important, becoming even moreso when you consider the ever-growing importance that science and technology play in our daily lives.
We are excited to launch a capital fundraising campaign to ensure our ability to reach students with Doc’s mission and legacy well into the future. We invite you to join us in celebrating the successes of the past 25 years and to take part in our campaign as we prepare for even greater things to come in the next 25 years.
