Review for Emerald Coast Science Center, Fort Walton Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The Emerald Coast Science Center is a great asset to our community and school district. Our family has participated in a variety of experiences at the Science Center. We routinely visit when in the downtown Ft. Walton area. Each of our children has their favorite display sections and always leave more curious about some aspect of science. Our children have also hosted their birthday parties at the Science Center; a great way to introduce more families to the Science Center and have fun at the same time. The kids enjoy the science activity and get to take home their creation. As a school parent volunteer, I have also accompanied students attending the Science Center during a field trip. These excursions allow all children the opportunity to explore the world of science. Our school's PTO incorporated the Science Center's "Family Science Night" program into our Science Fair. It was wonderful to see kids and adults learning about science at each different experiment table. Our children have attended various science camps and programs at the Science Center. This summer our two oldest daughters had a blast in the Lego Robotics camp. The Science Center creates that "spark" in young children via its hands-on displays and programs. Through its many varied programs, the Science Center helps cultivate that interest as students grow and develop.
