“Imagination, Science, Leadership and Education”
A message from the Executive Director- Lee Smith
Welcome to Science Downtown!
As Executive Director, I am often asked, "What makes Science Downtown special?" It happens every day. Visitors and staff all want to know. For me the key for Science Downtown’s presence lies in three primary areas: its content, its access to scientific data and knowledge and its commitment to energize thought and imagination toward the importance of the application of science, technology, engineering and math to past, present and future exploration of ideas.
Our daily challenge is making science and the knowledge based approaches that apply to exploring the universe around us more accessible to adults and children of all ages. Our exhibitions, lectures and special events offer academic and entertaining perspectives from the people and the institutions that support their study and understanding.
Our commitment is to maintain an environment that through periodic exhibit upgrades creates an ongoing setting conducive to the learning experience that is remembered forever by our community supporters and visitors who come here from all over the country.
Please come to Science Downtown and experience our current exhibition “Mars and Beyond”. As many have already discovered, the sights, the sounds, the wonders of space and the mysteries of Mars can be a truly enlightening experience.
