Venue Description

Spark your imagination at Science Central. Inside the doors of the former City Power and Light facility you will find over 30,000 sq. feet of hands-on learning in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math and affordable family fun. You and your friends are invited to spend the day discovering the exhilaration of whooshing down our 3-story slide, dancing out an original tune on our giant keyboard or pretending you are walking on the moon. Discover the wonders of planet Earth with this geology overnight! Learn to identify minerals, discover rock categories in a delicious way and trade rocks with us in our Swap Shop—the biggest rock shop in Northeast Indiana! Set a course for deep space as you explore the galaxy in our StarLab Planetarium! See the planets and stars in a whole new light as you make glow-in-the-dark star slime and act out the phases of the moon. Stir up a good time with crazy chemical concoctions as you put balloons into a liquid nitrogen deep freeze. Create a weird goo that’s not a liquid or solid, but somewhere in between, and make your own gas (no, not like that!). Go mad with science!
Located in the historic 1929 City Light and Power building, we are the region’s only interactive science center. Science Central is the perfect place for intimate gatherings, professional meetings, receptions, or large galas, and your guests will talk about the event for years! Our event professionals are here to ensure that you have a perfect function. You’ll have access to plenty of parking, event staffing, catering, tables and chairs, A/V equipment, and fun exhibits. Plan your next event amidst the ambiance of local history and innovation at Science Central, Fort Wayne's brightest science center!
