About Discovery Center

As your local, nonprofit science center, the Discovery Center's mission is to inspire curiosity and a life-long love of learning through memorable and engaging hands-on experiences in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). 

The Discovery Center (DCS) is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, that relies on admissions, memberships, program fees, and donations to continue our educational mission, programs and exhibits. DCS lets you take your mind on a thrilling exploration of the sciences by providing entertaining, hands-on adventures for all ages. At DCS, you can: 

  • Stroll through the inner workings of a giant eyeball 
  • Dig for a dinosaur 
  • Take home your own DNA 
  • Ride the HighWire bike 
  • And so much more!
