Community Access Program (CAP)

Discovery Space’s Community Access Program gives community members, area nonprofits and social service agencies access to the science center. This program provides memberships and camp scholarships to families who could not otherwise afford them, and free admission passes to organizations who serve underrepresented groups. Donating to this fund allows Discovery Space to reach more families throughout the area.

Summer 2019 Science Camps Sponsorship

After 17 successful camps in 2018, Discovery Space summer science is back with 19 different science-themed camps in 2019!

We offer camps for children ages four to fourteen. Each camp is a mix of fun, science, technology, engineering, and more!

We rely on sponsors and contributions to help fulfill the mission of providing engaging science experiences which spark creativity, curiosity, and imagination.

We would like to offer you the opportunity to support these camps while promoting your business at the same time. Funds will be used for (among other things) camp operations, activity supplies and experiment materials, as well as scholarships for children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend.

If you have questions or would like to discuss partnership opportunities, please contact Mary Schell at 814.234.0200 or .

Thank you for considering this opportunity!

While we greatly appreciate contributions of any size, the following levels provide the benefits listed below.
