What visitors are saying about i2:

"My kids are 13 and 11 and our family has a passion for science. We have been to dozens of science museums all over the country. What makes Adventure Science Center special is the people who work there and some very unique and fun programming. My kids started taking classes at the Innovation Incubator last year. My boys have learned not only to make fun projects but the science behind them. I am so impressed with this work space and the people who work in it. We learn so much in there that we bring home and add to our homeschool!mThanks again for making my kids so happy! We are so very thankful for the programming at Adventure Science Center."
