Suncoast Science Center and Faulhaber Fab Lab – Inspiring tomorrow’s innovators through experiential learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. SSC will change the trajectory of scientific literacy in our community. Our alliance with teachers, parents, partners, and you will produce measurable success, competency, and achievement for our students. http://www.suncoastscience.org/
Where We Started – It all began with the Faulhaber Family Foundation and its passion for promoting and furthering the interest, educationand exploration of science. The foundation supports many different facets of science exploration, experimentation and education including science fairs and the STEMsmart TechActive classrooms. The Faulhabers also created the Faulhaber Fab Lab and the Science Lending Library, a 501(c)(3) that allows teachers to borrow science equipment at no cost so students can conduct hands-on experiments in the classroom.
Our Mission – A 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational consortium dedicated to the enrichment of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in our community. Our goal is to supplement public and private education with a science center that stimulates curiosity and supports hands-on learning. We bridge the gap between what schools provide and the knowledge necessary to meet the significant demand for STEM professionals. We partner with school boards, parents, businesses, and universities to encourage all children to be their best and brightest selves.
