Everything is in place, all that's needed is a SPACE!

Tucson is spilling over with science geeks and science stuff; but for now, what happens in our laboratories, workshops, backyards, garages, and kitchens stays in laboratories, workshops, backyards, garages, and kitchens. This leaves the public and, most of all our kids, in the dark. All that's needed is a community space, a science playground, where things are allowed to happen. What exactly is happening in the vacant buildings around town, anyway?

In the News: Creating a Science Center

Our own Kip Perkins and our colleagues at Creative Machines are featured in this Tucson Weekly article discussing our drive to bring a new kind of science center to Tucson.

We look to build on the successes of the Physics Factory and Creative Machines, and find inspiration in the achievements of like-minded projects in other cities.

This is a bold, exciting and challenging undertaking, and one that can only succeed by harnessing the energy, ideas, support and generosity that we find in this great community and everywhere we've traveled as an organization.
