The Adventure Science Center is a non profit in Nashville dedicated to educating children in the subjects of science and technology. Their stated mission is, “To open every mind to the wonders of science and technology, fostering a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us.”
The center recently celebrated its 70th anniversary, and I had the pleasure of meeting with one of their educators—Omar Peña—to discuss the center, education, and technology.
Omar is a Maker Space Educator in the Innovation Incubator at the center, where he guides sessions for students with 3D printing technologies, computer code, and electronics. I was interested to know more about the space, and Omar was kind to share part of his day to show me around while teaching me about interesting technologies. Without further ado, class is in session.
