Solstice is the Maryland Science Center’s annual fundraiser celebrating its mission. Each year, on the Saturday closest to the Summer Solstice, friends of the Science Center gather to recognize the important work that takes place each and every day at the Science Center and out in the community across the entire State of Maryland.
Proceeds from Solstice support the Science Center’s long-standing free admission policy for Maryland students.
For over forty years all Maryland school students visiting on a field trip have received free admission to the Science Center’s exhibit halls. All proceeds from Solstice help underwrite the free admission policy and help ensure that future generations of students will continue to visit for free on a field trip. Solstice is one night of scientific celebration but the mission of the Science Center is the reason we gather. Now, more than ever, science matters.
