      Community Needs

      There is a common need for high quality experiences for families, and for institutions that build a strong sense of community with citizens with widely ranging backgrounds, economic status, and personal goals. Orlando seeks to increase its stake in knowledge industries that employ high wage workers, and a key component of this goal is a strong educational system with an emphasis on math and science learning.

      Parents, increasingly in households where all caregivers hold full time jobs, need a place for quality time with their children, to reinforce good educational habits. There is a national scale crisis in the production of future knowledge workers, which is often attributed to a need to create interest in these careers in young children. The Orlando Science Center sees itself as playing an important role in meeting these needs for our region.
