Sci-Tech Discovery Center
Sci-Tech Discovery Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, educational organization began as the brainchild of the Junior League of Plano in 1999 to meet the community's demand for an innovative education discovery center. The Center has a clear mission to provide a dynamic, interactive experience that inspires people of all ages and backgrounds to embrace discovery and innovation through the exploration of math, science and technology. Sci-Tech Discovery Center seeks to spark a life-long interest and help equip area children with these advanced skills to inspire the next generation of engineers, scientists, educators and innovators. Prior to its permanent home in Frisco, near the Heritage Park, Sci-Tech also provides outreach bringing various discovery programs to community centers, libraries, schools and scout groups across Collin County. The organization hosted two successful preview exhibits in the summers of 2004 and 2005 at the Shops of Willow Bend that gave more than 30,000 visitors a peek at these experimental learning opportunities. Sci-Tech Discovery Center will offer year-round exhibits, education outreach, groups and special events to ignite a passion for science in young people.
