The Connecticut Science Center Gala will take place VIRTUALLY on Saturday, October 2. While we were hopeful to gather in person, we are clear that this is the right choice, and we are grateful that we have science, data, and extraordinary science minds in our community to draw upon in this decision, as we have throughout the pandemic.

Thanks to science and those who use it, we are nowhere near the conditions we experienced a year ago. The vaccine, safe practices, proactive policy and a science-informed society all offer us a bright future. Our message to LOVE SCIENCE, and our 2021 Gala theme THANK YOU SCIENCE are more salient and powerful than ever.

Join us for the Connecticut Science Center Virtual Gala: Thank You Science on October 2nd from 6:30PM – 7:30PM. Enjoy behind-the-scenes Connecticut Science Center adventures, at-home science activities for the whole family, special presentations of the 2021 STEM Achievement and Petit Family Foundation Women in Science Leadership Awards, and more! Throughout the evening, indulge yourself in the vibrant silent auction, which features an incredible array of items and experiences across the world while continuing to support the Science Center’s mission!

Bidding is LIVE now!

Your contributions play a vital role in this annual event bringing the community together in support of the Connecticut Science Center’s innovative and enriching educational experiences for all. Thank you and THANK YOU SCIENCE!
