“Indiana’s first hands-on science center”
Science Central was originally incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1987 by a group of teachers, parents, engineers, and community/business leaders who wanted to see the creation of a local science discovery center. While working towards that goal, the group also set about developing hands-on science programs for use in schools, camps, and public settings. In June of 1989, Science Central sponsored the animatronic Dinosaurs Alive exhibit at the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo and by its fifth year over 130 schools and some 30,000 participants had taken part in the organization’s popular Teach Reach program.During this time, Science Central, originally known as the Science Collective of Northeast Indiana, Inc., grew to include more than 200 volunteers. On November 5, 1995 this dedicated group’s dream became reality and Science Central opened its doors to the public for the first time. On that day, Science Central also became Indiana’s first hands-on science center.
Lots of hands on things for kids to do. This took us a few hours to get through the 2 floors. Kids 7-12 would probably enjoy this the best with some of the exhibits having height restrictions. There was a great toddler area though with a slide and water table.
