“Making science fun & rewarding”

Our mission is to provide a wide range of supplemental, active learning science programs that stress the learned use of higher order thinking skills necessary to function in today's society. We are committed to offering age-appropriate, hands-on, fun oriented student participation in lab experiences that stress higher order thinking skills. Drake Planetarium and Science Center is operated by Tri-state Education And Technology Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit educational organization with the mission to teach science to the youth of Greater Cincinnati. This is accomplished through Drake Planetarium, Drake Science Center, Environmental Education at Lindner Park, and Outreach programs for area schools. We offer educational opportunities from preschool through high school. Teacher and adult workshops are also available. All of our student programming is designed to incorporate national and state curriculum requirements as well as the state proficiency standards. Every program is not only educational, but fun and rewarding as well! Drake Planetarium and Science Center has been providing science education since 1982 to children throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The Drake Planetarium's seating capacity is 70 visitors per show and programs are available for audiences ranging from preschool age to senior citizens. During the school year, we offer weekday shows for schoolchildren and homeschool families. In addition, we have evening and weekend public planetarium shows monthly that are geared to the entire family. During the summer, we have planetarium shows that coordinate with our Summer Camp program and offer daycare centers and other Summer Camp Programs a field trip option for their campers.Drake Science Center houses our Engineering and Lego Labs, our Summer Camps, Saturday Lego, and Lego Birthday Parties. The Science Center offers most of our hands-on science programs and are often used in conjunction with Planetarium programs or Environmental Education at Lindner Park. We also offer several Outreach programs in area schools. Some are conducted in the classroom, others, like our Afterschool Legoand Traveling Galaxy are placed in larger settings, such as a gymnasioum. The Traveling Galaxy Show is a portable planetarium that can travel to children and audiences throughout the greater Cincinnati area. This outreach program instructs, motivates, and fuels students' curiosity about the universe. Our programs are customized to grade levels, presenting the most interesting & appropriate material for each age group.

A total gem. Didn't know this place was in town, much less this close to my house! Loved it.
