The Science Center was created to serve as an extension for science classrooms in Campbell County School District and the surrounding area. With the help of educators, local businesses and both the city and county government, the Science Center has grown to over 10,000 square feet! Many of our exhibits and critters have been donated to us by the public and by businesses in our area. While we focus mainly on providing learning opportunities for the local schools during the school year, we gladly invite the public to visit us during our posted public hours.
Of the total 10,000 square feet available to us, approximately 7,000 square feet is filled with over 60 interactive exhibits and animal displays. This makes the Science Center the perfect place to cure a thirst for science knowledge. As many as three classes per day visit the Science Center. While many classes are from local schools, we have classes come from around the state and some even visit us from surrounding states.
The remaining 3,000 square feet of the Science Center is devoted to the care of our animals, storage and maintenance of exhibits, and providing educational science kits to teachers in the district for use in the classroom. Teachers use our science kits in conjunction with their science curriculum and to provide more opportunities to expand the science knowledge of the district's students.
