OUR HISTORY

Responding to community demand, Sci-Tech Discovery Center was established in 2004 after the concept was studied and the vision shared with the community as a multi-year initiative of the Junior League of Plano.

To validate the plan to establish, build and endow a permanent, high quality science and technology museum in Collin County, Sci-Tech hosted preview exhibits in the summers of 2004 and 2005 to demonstrate that the residents of our area would embrace such a facility. Over 25,000 voted yes with their feet. Since then Sci-Tech has delivered numerous outreach programs in preparation for establishing a permanent home in Collin County.

In October of 2010, we reopened with the Math Midway exhibit and have been active ever since.
