From the Executive Director
The Greatest Love

Each February, the Children’s Science Center team dedicates our efforts to thanking our most precious resource – our volunteers! From the earliest days of our organization through today, volunteers are at the heart of our mission. For many years we were an all-volunteer organization, and even today many of our staff started working with us as volunteers. 

Last year, over 750 generous individuals offered their time to help us meet our mission of inspiring a love of learning in STEM. They truly made our mission possible and helped us serve 77,000 people in 2019 at the Lab and in community programs delivered across the region. Our volunteers include teenagers, working professionals from all industries, retirees, and even a handful of elementary school aged children who serve as youth ambassadors. We love each and every one of our volunteers. And we love seeing it come full circle as our volunteers witness the joy of learning in the children we serve and in doing so become more connected to community! 

In gratitude,

Adelene "Nene" Spivy
