Bids & Beakers (21+)



Support life-changing experiences for Middle Tennessee families - including 75,000 children - by coming to Bids & Beakers.

Adventure Science Center's  mission is to open every mind to the wonders of science and technology, fostering a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us. 

You can provide life-changing science and technology experiences for tens of thousands of school-aged children in Middle Tennessee.

Help make this a reality by joining us for our Bids & Beakers silent auction - an evening of things that make Nashville exciting and extraordinary: music, science, food, and community. 

Without the generous support of our donors, we couldn't provide public and educational programs, open amazing exhibits like soundBox, or provide subsidized memberships to those that need them for just $39 a year!

Buying a ticket and bidding on items at Bids & Beakers will help us do all this and more. Thank you for your support!
