Supporting MSC

Individual and Corporate Support

The Massachusetts Science Center is a charitable nonprofit organization that needs a variety of funding sources to grow its hands-on programs.

From 1994 to September 1, 2018, we did not solicit funding from any source. But, with recent reports about school testing that science education continues to fail, we seek help from corporations, foundations, and government agencies, and the generosity of individual donors to enable us to develop and produce cutting-edge training, international science consulting, and to continue to present inspiring and educational interactive programs to almost 40 million children worldwide each year. We thank our donors for their loyalty and enthusiasm, and look forward to working with new friends as we grow as a world-class science and technology center.

For more information on how to donate, please call us at 781-935-9925. Your donations are completely tax deductible.

Volunteering

The Massachusetts Science Center seeks to recruit, develop, and retain individuals from racially and culturally diverse backgrounds and persons with disabilities.
We strive to create and sustain a more affirming environment for all staff, interns, volunteers, trustees and overseers. We value expertise gained at the Center and encourage professional development and career growth. Our visitors learn more about the world around us through touch, observation, interaction, and play. Their experiences are made substantially more meaningful through the work of our dedicated and enthusiastic core of volunteers, who are an integral part of the community. Volunteers support the MSCC in activities that range from interacting with visitors to providing administrative support for the staff. In all that they do, their work enables the MSCC to provide a lively, fun and educational experience for everyone.

Become part of our volunteer team! To apply, please call us at 781-935-9925. Thanks for your support!

In 2019 we will be creating America’s first FREE STEM lab!  This amazing 3,000 square foot “State of the Art” facility will be host to schools from the Greater Boston area.  We will offer dozens of free programs and all taught by local professional scientists and engineers.  With the help of several generous sponsors students will make and take home all of their experiments and activities. Museums and discovery centers are fun but without make and take home hands-on experiments research shows that they offer no long term increases in science skills, attitude or knowledge levels.
