Through real-world applications we expose people of all ages to the possibilities of science and technology to create a better future. From educational camps for children to employability skills programs for adults, we are dedicated to delivering innovative, dynamic learning experiences.
Once upon a time, a few brave iguanas searched for a better life. Searching far and wide, the iguanas discovered The Science Center of Pinellas, a land with bountiful food and beautiful habitats. They gathered all their iguana friends and family and boarded the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Iguana for a voyage to this new, hopeful world.
When the iguanas arrived, they quickly realized they were not alone - there were dozens of unique, marine animals and reptiles living in The Science Center's 600-gallon touch tank! Baby sharks, stingrays, sea stars galore. Would the iguanas and the marine critters become peaceful neighbors?
Well, Elliott the Snake, Chief of the Native Science-Center-ans, slithered over to the iguanas and offered them a place to stay and some dinner. The iguanas graciously accepted and thanked Chief Elliott for being so nice and welcoming. Fall Camp marks the anniversary of their first encounter and the lasting friendship made between the species of The Science Center, new and old. Come celebrate with us!
Children are the dreamers, doers, the explorers and the future! They are the ones who will conquer the unknown and solve tomorrow's problems. Join the Science Center in showing children the wonder and possibilities of science while sparking their interest in knowledge and learning.
