The National Science Center (NSC) is a unique partnership between National Science Center, Inc., a non-profit organization, and the United States Army.
To be a catalyst that excites America's youth about math, science and technology.
To accomplish this Mission, NSC will:
• Promote science and mathematics education for all ages nationwide.
• Motivate young Americans to seek careers in technology and engineering.
• Produce products and services providing hands-on training in the sciences.
• Operate and maintain a headquarters that functions as a hub for national education programs.
The NSC's headquarters, Fort Discovery, is located on the scenic Riverwalk in downtown Augusta, GA. This 128,000 square-foot family-oriented math and science center fires the imaginations of children and adults by making math, science and technology come alive with 250 hands-on exhibits, custom digital theater programs, portable planetarium, educational workshops and demonstrations as well as being the home-base for an array of national educational outreach programs.
There are plenty of educational opportunities at Fort Discovery. For example, Fort Discovery's sensory theater amazes and entertains visitors with a unique multimedia show that combines projected images on multiple screens with surprising special effects. The result is an exciting, entertaining program for audiences of all ages.
