The Center specializes in sustained, multi-session elementary and middle school science education, with a focus on a STEM science, technology, engineering and math curriculum. Here at the center, we know that all four of these problem solving disciplines are necessary for day-to-day life in veterinary medicine. It is our goal to teach the students that come to us about how we use these fields, how they are important in veterinary medicine, and how they can be used in almost any profession in the world. We emphasize and implement the scientific method in our programs.
