Weekends Rock Thanks to Akron Community Foundation!

Our Super Science Saturdays just got a little more super thanks to a grant from the Vivienne S. and Russell R. Johnstone Family Fund of Akron Community Foundation! With their help, we will be able to purchase educational supplies, fun models, kits, and craft materials to enhance the hands-on learning of each Super Science Saturday. We believe the best way to learn science is to DO it and thanks to the generous support of the Vivienne S. and Russell R. Johnstone Family Fund, children will have the opportunity to do just that each month. 

This year, we will explore beautiful bone systems, the science of spring, the science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) of space exploration, and more! Our Super Science Saturday program continues to grow each month. In March, we had a blast learning all about rad reptiles with 32 budding scientists! They had the chance to meet some of our in-house reptile friends like Oscar, our ball python, and Rosie, our bearded dragon, while also learning about reptile anatomy, diet, and habitats.

We are so grateful to the Vivienne S. and Russell R. Johnstone Family Fund of Akron Community Foundation for making it possible for us to meet the growing enthusiasm for science in our community. Thank you!


Programming All Year Long!



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.
