Arizona Science Center

Teen Advisory Board


Since the inception in 2017, Arizona Science Center’s Teen Advisory Board has engaged more than 4,283 youth, ages 13-18, in hands-on STEM learning opportunities.

Arizona Science Center's Teen Advisory Board members serve as representatives for Arizona Science Center. The Teen Advisory Board promotes relations between donors and supporters to understand the importance of teen programming better. In addition, the Teen Advisory Board works with the Center's leadership team and local community organizations to develop, test, and implement content, programs and exhibits. Through their experience on the Teen Advisory Board and with guidance from Arizona Science Center Team Members, teens ages 15+ will develop as exceptional young leaders in the community. 


Throughout the year-long commitment (June – June), members will participate in monthly life readiness and personal development workshops, plan and implement community service projects, and foster their public speaking skills.
