The mission of Arizona Science Center is to inspire, educate and engage curious minds through science.
Our vision is to be a global leader in creating relevant and engaging science experiences that foster a community where people understand science, technology, engineering and math as a way to inform decision-making and enrich their lives.
By 2020, Arizona Science Center will be a leader in helping to prepare future leaders to address local and global issues that require science understanding. We will prime a talented STEM workforce that seeks higher education, encourages innovation and inventors and prepares our students for careers and adulthood.
Heightening awareness about the importance of science understanding in solving some of today’s most pressing issues is essential. Positioning Arizona Science Center as more than just a fun place to visit, but also as a central voice in providing access, inspiration and opportunities to the next generation workforce is part of the Center’s ambitious vision for the future.
Of equal importance is that quality STEM training results in tech-savvy critical thinkers and problem solvers, and enables next generation innovators and inventors. Arizona Science Center Board and Staff believe all of Arizona’s young people should be afforded an opportunity to become leaders who can play a role in the opportunities and challenges of the nation and world, both today and tomorrow.
