PacSci Podcast: Taking Science on The Road
Since Pacific Science Center opened in 1962, taking a field trip to our main campus next to Seattle Center has become a tradition for schools all over the Northwest. But starting in the 70s, the Science Center gained a new tradition through our Science On Wheels program – and for good reason. Science On Wheels travels across the region bringing interactive workshops, live stage shows and portable exhibit sets that build excitement for STEM education. The program has engaged with students, teachers and communities reaching millions who are unable to make it to our Seattle campus. Learn more about the program and our educators in this quick PacSci Podcast.
