You hold the key to their future

Your generous year-end gift will help over 60,000 students in Middle Tennessee
find the key to their future in science.



Watch this mother react to her daughter finding the key to her future in science:

Whether at the Science Center or out in the community, our mission is to provide every student, no matter their background, the key they need to awaken their inner scientist, engineer, innovator or explorer. Your donation will help us to continue programs like:

  • Art2STEM – dynamic after-school club conducted at several area middle schools that taps into the attraction to art that many 7th and 8th grade girls have and broadens their horizons to STEM-related career paths.
  • TWISTER – conference held each year that connects young girls with women in the community excelling in STEM professions.
  • Science On the Go! – outreach initiative that puts the Science Center on wheels and brings it into the classroom for schools that cannot make the trip to visit ASC.
  • Adventure Assistance – provides free admissioin for qualifying schools and families served by community social services organizations.

*Annual Fund gifts support outreach activities as well as school programs, exhibits, and general operations*
