“The first time I walked into the Science Center, I was just amazed.”

Exhibits play an essential role in unlocking the imagination of all ages and inspiring young minds to pursue their dreams. SPARK! A Campaign for Carnegie Science Center is bringing new, refreshed, and reimagined science exhibits to Pittsburgh’s favorite place for hands-on learning.
The Science Center is one of the region’s most beloved cultural and educational attractions. Our expansion will provide many more ‘Aha!’ moments for kids and families, and play an even greater role in the ongoing development of the city’s North Shore corridor.

Four initiatives in all, BodyTech is all about creating learning experiences on health and the human body: through the BodyWorks exhibition, opening in October 2016; the BodyStage, a live theater review of how the body stays healthy; and BodyForum and BodyLab, which will deliver onsite and offsite opportunities to learn about careers in healthcare and contemporary health issues.
