The Great Lakes Science Center has partnered with City of Cleveland Neighborhood Resource and Recreation Centers to provide STEM programs to four of the centers through 2020.
Programming began July 22 at the Lonnie Burton Center in Cleveland’s Central neighborhood. In total, the science center will present 20 days of programming over the next 12 months. The location will move every quarter to spend a week at a different neighborhood center.
The partnership was born out of the idea to combat toxic stress and trauma by providing free programming. Activities range from STEM workshops, job and career readiness training, ACT/SAT prep, ballet and chess.
In addition to the programming, the science center will make a family pass available at each of the city’s recreation and resource centers which families can use to visit the science center and then return for other families to use.
