Did you know that the more science capital (defined as science-related qualifications, interest, literacy and social contacts) a young person has, the more likely they are to study science in higher education?
In fact, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) are the building blocks for the world around us. Da Vinci Science Center provides STEAM-centered education to thousands of children annually. This holistic approach to learning promotes critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and creativity while making connections between schools, the community, and the workplace.
The dramatic changes in our everyday lives as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, intense weather events, and rapidly advancing technologies have elevated the importance of science and science learning. Since 1992, the Da Vinci Science Center has played a critical role providing access to a wealth of science-rich resources for youth, families, and teachers in the greater Lehigh Valley region. Inspired by its namesake, Leonardo da Vinci, today the Science Center is the “go-to” resource for hands-on learning experiences.
Your gift will help ensure that Da Vinci Science Center continues to inspire curiosity for generations to come.
