community impact report

inspire science learning for life.

a message for our community

dear friends, Science comes alive at Orlando Science Center. Within these pages, you’ll see just how. Through exhibits, demonstrations, events, camps, and workshops both within and outside our walls, everyone involved with the Orlando Science Center is dedicated to our mission: inspire science learning for life. Fiscal year 2013 was one of great achievement and impact. The Science Center concluded its thirteenth consecutive fiscal year with a surplus. Annual revenue reached $9 million - the second highest it’s been since our current facility opened in 1997. Ever mindful of our past struggles, we are working toward substantial operating reserves to sustain the organization. We currently have an operating reserve of $670,000 and a separate capital reserve of $290,000, which is invested back into our visitor experiences. Our attendance soared to just under 414,000 - the greatest number since our grand opening year in 1997. By fiscal year’s end, our membership base surged to more than 7,600 households - also, the best since our grand opening year. We’ve experienced gains in attendance every year for the past five years, representing an average of 45% overall growth - an amazing number during a time when “flat is the new up.” Plus, the Science Center attained Gold Level LEED Certification, the first nonprofit in Florida and the first existing building in the City of Orlando to achieve that distinction. The enhancements in energy efficiency and alternative energy are already making a huge impact. We are able to demonstrate the importance of environmental sustainability to our visitors and members, while also reducing our carbon footprint and utility costs. Electricity usage has been reduced by 50%, water usage by 84% and gas usage by 67%. We are very proud of these successes. They have made us a stronger resource for our community, but there is so much more work to be done. In fiscal year 2013, 95,000 youth were inspired during field trip visits and offsite programs at schools and community centers. But that pales in comparison to

the scores of students and teachers struggling every day with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects; and the employers who are desperately seeking qualified workers in STEM industries. Studies show that 80% of what our children learn comes from outside the classroom. Informal learning resources like the Orlando Science Center are vital. Together with academia, government and industry, science centers like ours give youth a fighting chance at success in school; and fuel the possibilities of dynamic careers in tomorrow’s technological workforce. In 1955, a passionate group of volunteers came together to share their love of science by building the Orlando Science Center’s foundation. We continue to honor their legacy 58 years later with everything we do. We extend our sincere appreciation to the many community partners, volunteers, individuals and families that have stepped forward to propel our mission. Together, we make a difference. Together, we make an impact. Together, we inspire science learning for life. In Science,

star wars®: where science meets imagination

Presented by

Funded in Part by Orange County Government

The Science Center welcomed blockbuster exhibit Star Wars®: Where Science Meets Imagination for a seven-month engagement that was visited by 92,524 Science Center members and guests. Developed by the Museum of Science, Boston in collaboration with

Lucasfilm Ltd. and presented by Bose Corporation©, the 10,000 squarefoot exhibit explored the fantasy technologies depicted in the Star Wars films, as well as the real science behind them and the current research that may someday lead to real-life versions of the technologies seen in the film series.

corrosion: the silenT menace

Corrosion: The Silent Menace exhibit opened in March 2013, and explores the natural phenomena that lead to corrosion and material degradation. The exhibit also features hands-on activities to inspire the next generation of corrosion engineers.

Presented by the U.S. Department of Defense Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office and the University of Akron, the exhibit features narration by actor LeVar Burton (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Roots, Reading Rainbow), and showcases 3D Mapping technology to visualize corrosion, interactive

X-Box Kinect game play, corrosion engineering career exploration, and even scientific investigation of real NASA artifacts. The exhibit is on display at Orlando Science Center through spring 2014.
