Creation of a WORLD-CLASS science center focused on interactive, STEM-based, locally-oriented and educational exhibits. Creation of a truly world-class facility would have far-reaching impacts in our community through job development, significant tourism East of the Hathaway bridge, educational opportunities for local students, and a place for community events. The project would be a catalyst for other business growth in the downtown corridor and would be an enhancement to the recruitment of businesses and individuals looking to select Panama City as a place to live, work, and play.
