Mission: Gateway to Science opened in November 1994, to fill a need in our community for children of all ages to learn about science in an informal setting. We offer opportunities for learning in a hands-on way in the exhibits gallery and outreach programs that can be difficult for elementary teachers to duplicate in the classroom. The exhibits gallery is visited each school year by hundreds of students.
Results: Gateway to Science is preparing for an expansion project to increase space in the exhibits gallery and add a laboratory classroom. Added space will provide our visitors and program participants even better exhibits and programs.
Target demographics: Elementary students and their families. However, Gateway to Science is a great place for all ages.
