Thei goal is to increase teacher and student enthusiasm for science, math and technology by promoting the hands on, discovery learning approach to teaching and learning which sharpens critical thinking and problem solving skills and makes concepts become more meaningful in students' everyday lives. The county schools go here on field trips for the wonderful progams they have for grades p-k thru 6th grade. They also have a summer camp program and famliy science nights. Its alot of fun while your kids are learning about the enviorment. Highly reccomended.
