We are grateful for the generous support of each and every donor. Thank you for helping us to Celebrate Science every day.
The Maryland Science Center is a 501(C) (3) non-profit organization (Federal Tax ID# 52-0668166) dedicated to providing informal science education to the citizens of Maryland and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. We are the only cultural resource in the region focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) learning. Your donation to the Maryland Science Center supports our mission to advance the understanding of science and helps to underwrite free and reduced admission for Maryland school children and under-served residents of the community. Whether your donation is unrestricted support through the Annual Appeal, membership in the DaVinci Society, attendance at a special event, or a bequest — every gift is an investment in our future.
