Science Central
Fort Wayne
Science Central Mission Mission Science Central creates an entertaining, informative, interactive and family-oriented environment for children and adults where the inspiration to learn how to do science, math and technology emerges from "hands-on" participation. Science Central achieves its mission by pursuing these goals: To motivate people, especially children, to learn how to think scientifically and to consider careers in scientific, mathematical and technological fields To be an educational resource to students, families, educators and schools To present an integrated approach to math, science and technology To develop learning environments where children and adults can improve their knowledge about scientific, mathematical and technological concepts by interaction with a participatory exhibit program and To become an important educational and recreation attraction for residents of Indiana, as well as for tourists and other visitors to the area. Exhibit and Program Philosophy The foundation for all exhibits and programs at Science Central rests with the idea that science is about questions and curiosity. Everyone is a scientist who has questions about the world around them. At Science Central, visitors are engaged in learning how scientists investigate their own questions! Facility, Audience, Location and other fun facts! A $9.2 million renovation of 32,000 square feet of the 65,000-square-foot of the former City Light and Power plant has made the facility and its educational offerings accessible to everyone! At opening, the building encompassed 25,000 square feet of exhilarating discovery space filled with exhibits and programs. The remaining 7,000 square feet incorporate the volunteer area, the lobby, the LaboraSTOREy, public circulation spaces, a snack area, an exhibit workshop, general offices, flexible-use laboratories, building services facilities and the ERC. The facility is located just north of the downtown Fort Wayne area, adjacent to the city's Lawton Park, the park's acclaimed "Kid's Crossing" playground and Headwaters Park, a 3-acre, $9 million public/private initiative that opened in September 1995. Also, Science Central is about one mile due north of the new, $6-million Lincoln Museum, which opened in October 1995. Science Central's audience is people of all ages who visit the center and it will continue to provide outreach programs to more than 10,000 students and teachers annually in schools throughout Indiana and the tri-state area. In a short five years, Science Central has grown to be the second most visited attraction in a city known for it's richly varied cultural and educational sites!

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
