Mission

Inspire kids to develop their natural passion for science

Our mission is to establish an interactive science environment in Washington that will inspire and develop passion for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in elementary and middle school aged kids (K-8), and also be interesting to the whole family.  With hands on, project-based experiments, Cascades Science Center will become the nexus of science education, with constantly evolving content related to issues and trends of the time.

Specifically, the foundation is chartered to:

  1. Serve as a stimulus and uniting force for the creation of a science center located in King County, Washington
  2. Partner with education, science and research institutions and corporations to improve STEM education
  3. Provide an environment for youth to take the lead in fostering other kids’ interest in science
  4. Inspire students to pursue studies and careers in scientific fields
  5. Engage and encourage communities to participate and facilitate the goals of this program
  6. Develop a prototype model that can be replicated in other sustainable communities throughout the nation
