Our learning lab is an essential space to present in-depth, hands-on science learning experiences in biology, chemistry and other sciences for a wide range of school groups and grade levels. Your contribution today directly supports renovations and enhancements, including expanding the room and adding new workstations and lab equipment.

Thanks to a generous $40,000 challenge grant received from 3M and an additional gift from UL for an upgraded safety shower and eyewash station, we're already halfway to our goal. Help us get the rest of the way and engage students with awesome lab!


As a non-profit organization, we rely on generous contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations, and public agencies to support various funding priorities throughout the Science Center.
