Science Central

Fort Wayne, IN
United States

Science Central is a non-profit focused on STEM based learning. We provide hands-on programming in an exciting mix of demonstrations and labs beamed directly to your location!

We opened on November 5, 1995 and are located in a renovated Light and Power Plant. We are the only regional science and technology center in Northeast Indiana. We are also the only NASA Educator Resource Center in Indiana.

We are open throughout the whole year and are able to provide programming during the school year as well as during the summer.

Science Standards
Grade Kindergarten
Process Standards
The Nature of Science
• Use a scientific notebook to record predictions, questions and observations about data with pictures, numbers or in words.
• Make predictions based on observations.
• Discuss observations with peers and be able to support your conclusion with evidence.
• Make and use simple equipment and tools to gather data and extend the senses.
Standard 1 – Core Standard: Observe, manipulate, sort and generate questions about objects and their physical properties.
K.1.1 Use all senses as appropriate to observe, sort and describe objects according to their composition and physical properties, such as size, color, and shape. Explain these choices to others and generate questions about the objects.
Grade 1

The Nature of Science
• Use a scientific notebook to record predictions, questions and observations about data with pictures, numbers or in words.
• Conduct investigations that may happen over time as a class, in small groups, or independently.
• Generate questions and make observations about natural processes.
• Make predictions based on observations.
• Discuss observations with peers and be able to support your conclusion with evidence.
• Make and use simple equipment and tools to gather data and extend the senses.
Standard 1 – Core Standard: Describe objects in terms of the materials that compose them and their physical properties.
1.1.1 Use all senses as appropriate to identify the component parts of objects and the materials from which they are made.
1.1.2 Characterize materials as solid or liquid, investigate their properties, record observations and explain the choices to others based on evidence (e.g. physical properties).
