Science Central is a museum dedicated to teaching visitors, especially children, about science and the STEM fields. It features over 200 interactive, hands-on exhibits and offers various science demonstrations in its theater. The museum is housed in the city's first power station called the City Light & Power, which was built in 1908. Some of the station's original equipment still exits and are painted in different colors.
Backstory and Context
Science Center started in 1987 as a non-profit comprised of a diverse group of locals who wanted to establish a science museum. They developed science programs for schools, camps, and public areas. Eventually, they opened the museum in the old power station on November 5, 1995.
