The Da Vinci Science Center’s mission is to bring science to life and lives to science. As they pursue that mission every day, the Center’s professionals and volunteers aspire to live up to the following core values.
We exist as the Da Vinci Science Center team to serve the needs and lives of families, students, and educators from all backgrounds – including underserved populations.
We are not afraid to evaluate, question, be unsure at times, process constructive criticism, analyze evidence, succeed, fail, change as needed, and pursue growth opportunities.
Every thing we do and every investment we make in experiences, people, and partnerships produces a measurable impact upon our shared mission and vision.
We embrace playful curiosity, entrepreneurial exploration, active learning, and occasional silliness, from ourselves and the families, students, and educators we serve.
We appreciate that we have been entrusted with valuable resources – including time, funding, and the Earth’s environment – and we work passionately to minimize waste and maximize impact.
We broaden our impact through mutually-beneficial collaborations with individuals, groups, and organizations with which we share visions, goals, or practices.
Each of us can be trusted by those we serve, our partners, and our colleagues to work in a timely and respectful manner, keep promises, and provide accurate scientific information and perspectives.
While we are strong, talented, passionate, and diverse individuals, we are united with respect and in common purpose without exception.
