coronavirus dark 1200x800Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Due to health concerns associated with the Coronavirus, Science Central will temporarily close to the public, and is cancelling all programs, events and outreaches starting Wednesday, March 18th. We hope to re-open on Wednesday, April 15th.

We did not make this decision easily. As a science-based, educational institution, the management team feels this action is in the best interest of our visitors, staff and volunteers. It is the responsibility of everyone to help reduce the spread of the virus.

If you were scheduled for any upcoming programs, we will contact you in a separate communication, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

We look forward to re-opening soon!
