Mission Statement

The Sci-Tech Center's purpose is:

a. To communicate to the public a better understanding and appreciation of science and technology;

b. To develop and display participatory exhibits, demonstrations and programs in the basic sciences and technology;

c. To enable the general public to gain a first-hand experience with natural phenomena;

d. To serve as a resource for formal educational programs; and

e. To foster interest in scientific, engineering and industrial careers.


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.
