Super Science Saturday Recieves a

Grant from WITAN!

As summer begins, the sun isn’t the only thing brightening our day! We are excited to announce that Women in Touch with Akron’s Needs (WITAN) has generously granted Akron Fossils & Science Center $1,200 to support our Super Science Saturday program! The funds from this grant will be used to help purchase the educational supplies and resources that make each Super Science Saturday a fun, hands-on day of learning and exploration!

Super Science Saturday is a monthly program that provides an entire day of affordable hands-on learning and fun. Through experiments, activities, games, and crafts, children have the opportunity to spend the day digging into a brand new science topic each and every month. Since it was started, Super Science Saturday has continued to grow and we couldn’t be more excited that, with the help of WITAN and our other supporters, as more and more children choose to fill their weekends with science and learning, we will have the resources to meet their needs.  

Along with countless volunteer hours within the community, the Women of WITAN donate approximately $50,000 per year to community organizations.We hope you will join us in saying THANK YOU to WITAN for helping us to provide fun, enriching science education to the community! 


Adopt a Friend

Do you have a heart for our furry (and some not so furry!) friends? For just $5 per month (only $60 for the whole year!) you could “adopt” one of our animals as a sponsor! Your $5 will go towards food, bedding, and other supplies needed to keep our friends happy and healthy!     

As a sponsor and honorary pet parent, we will put your name and picture up by your adopted pet’s home (so they can say ‘Thank you!’) and we will send monthly photos and updates to you so you can watch them grow and thrive.

If you are interested in sponsoring one of these cuties,  email us at or call us at 330-665-3466.
