Event benefits The Discovery Center at Waters Edge will be the first interactive STEM museum for kids of all ages coming soon to Maryland. The Discovery Center at Water’s Edge will be a place where students of all ages can experience hands-on science and technology, see tomorrow’s technology today, and learn the history of scientific discovery in our area. A place where new worlds are discovered; and connections are made. Exhibits featuring virtual reality will allow visitors to drive a tank or fly a plane. Other exhibits will explore the history and the future of high-performance computing. In addition to interactive exhibits, the Discovery Center will offer after-school programs, and maker spaces, and serve as an anchor for the region’s STEM activities.
There are only two other world-class science centers in the United States and what makes this one so special is its long heritage with world-changing technologies that for over the past 100 years, many of these technologies trace their roots to Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), the Army’s technology “mega-base.”.
.Phase 1 will be a 5,000-square-foot “Preview” Center at the Water’s Edge complex in Belcamp, MD. Phase 2 will result in the opening of an operational Discovery Center with 10,000 square feet of space, serving over 55,000 visitors each year, and costing approximately $4.5 million. Phase 3 will expand the center to 35,000 square feet serving 100,000 visitors each year. For more information about the Discovery Center at Water’s Edge, visit https://discoverycentermd.org.
