The Reading Science Center exists to foster a love of Science through exciting and experiential STEM education for the Greater Reading community, especially our youth.
Through both formal and informal science education, the Reading Science Center promotes careers in science, technology, engineering and math (“STEM”) careers, helping to address the shortage of people entering such careers and in turn helping the local economy.
Reading Science Center programming compliments and augments efforts by school districts, government agencies, and other non-profit organizations in promoting STEM careers to youth and provides a centralized location to advance science education within our community.
Do you love STEM? Do you want to be a founding volunteer member helping us to build the momentum for our opening year of the Reading Science Center #RddgSci, located on Penn Street in downtown Reading?
We want your help! Maybe you have an hour to give conducting tours, maybe you have weekend and after school hours to teach in our cell lab – whatever you have to offer in time and talent, we will find you a volunteer job that can help us make Berks County’s first Reading Science Center a huge community success.
