Sci-Tech Center of NNY is a playground for the mind of all ages! We are the only hands-on museum in Northern NY and we are open year round. We are 100% run by volunteers and we need talented people like you to join our cause. You don’t need a background in science! We are looking for generous people who are willing to share their talents with us. Here are some areas of need:
Research & writing
STEM workshop facilitation
Artistry & carpentry
Construction & maintenance
If you can offer something that you think could benefit the museum and it is not on the list, we still want to hear from you! We offer flexible scheduling and we are open to people who want to gain experience in these areas.
Please contact Steve at email@example.com or call 315-788-1340. You can also visit the museum on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am-4pm or anytime on our website www.scitechcenter.org

The Sci-Tech Center of Northern NY is a small "hands-on" science museum, located in the center of Watertown, New York. Along with about 40 exhibits for children and adults, the Center offers workshops for various ages and interests.
The Center also provides outreach programming in local school classrooms, community centers and at other remote sites.
Throughout the year, the Sci-Tech Center runs nighttime public astronomy observing sessions, including the annual "Evening Under the Stars" - run each August to highlight the Perseids Meteor Shower.
Each May, the Center sponsors the Northern New York Science Fair for 4th to 8th grade students from Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties.
