You can be the spark that inspires a child to pursue a career in science! You can help bring science to life for low income and minority youth by sponsoring participation in the Ron McNair Camp-In, a private, overnight event at Pacific Science Center in partnership with Blacks in Science. At the Ron McNair Camp-In, low income and minority youth explore everything Pacific Science Center has to offer. Campers will experience all of the science exhibits with the help of trained science interpreters; participate in a hands-on science inquiry workshop taught by carefully selected teachers; see a planetarium show and live science stage show; and enjoy an educational IMAX® movie.
Discovery Corps is a youth development program that puts teens on the front lines of Pacific Science Center's mission to inspire a lifelong interest in science, math and technology. You can help support local youth, typically those underrepresented in science fields, and provide valuable job and leadership experiences. Youth interpret science for the Science Center's visitors, attend workshops on job and life skills, attend exciting field trips, have mentorship opportunities with local scientists, and enjoy fun social events.
The camp subsidy program gives youth the opportunity to participate in Pacific Science Center's Camps for Curious Minds, regardless of the family's income or life circumstance. The family is asked to contribute to the camp's fee at a level that is affordable, and scholarship funds are used to cover the remaining amount.
Help bring science education to schools throughout Washington state by sponsoring Pacific Science Center's Science On Wheels program. The program's goal is to enhance science education and inspire life-long learning by bringing in classroom lessons, exciting live demonstrations and hands-on exhibit areas to schools, many of which lack the funding and/or access to inspire their students through field trips to science centers and museums.
You can make a school field trip possible for a class that would otherwise not have the opportunity to visit Pacific Science Center for hands-on science education and exploration. A field trip to Pacific Science Center includes many fun and educational activities including seeing a documentary IMAX film, planetarium show, Laser show, and access to all of our permanent exhibits.
