Organization Background

Liberty Science Center's mission is to get learners of all ages excited about the power, promise and pure fun of science and technology. Established in 1993, Liberty Science Center is a 300,000 square-foot learning institution located in Jersey City, NJ, devoted to informal education. LSC provides 12 museum exhibitions, a live animal collection with 110 species, giant aquariums, a 3D theater, the nation's largest IMAX Dome theater, live simulcast surgeries, tornado and hurricane-force wind simulators, K-12 classrooms and labs and teacher professional development programs. The Center also reaches beyond the museum's walls by bringing interactive learning experiences directly to students through traveling science programs and virtual connections. LSC serves low-income and special needs populations through Community Evenings and Special Needs Days which offer free access to the museum for these demographics. The Center hosts an annual 600,000 guests which include 210,000 students and teachers from the New Jersey-New York region. Of these students and teachers, 40% visit from low-income, underserved schools via the Center's At-Risk Partnership with NJ's 31 at-risk school districts. Key personnel at LSC include:

Christine Arnold-Schroeder, Vice President, External Affairs
