Math Mania Night

Nate Miller, PHS Math

“I think the Science Center and Prairie High School share the goal of helping people, especially youth, understand the utility of math and science in the real world and to not only understand its utility, but also to actually use math in authentic ways. [Math Mania Night] will help us work towards that goal with the Prairie High School students gaining from having an authentic audience and the patrons of the Science Center being inspired by how they can see math in the world around them.”

Maker Space

Jim Jacobmeyer, CR EpiCenter

“There are some incredibly creative gifted people here in town doing some really interesting things. It’s hands-on. It’s real-world. It’s authentic. People are using what they create.”

New Location

Norah Hammond, Science Center Executive Director

“This new location gives us the ability to fulfill our mission by offering more programming and events…Over time we can build it out to add additional exhibits and programming if we’re able to get the funding to really outfit and update the building.”
