This year marks Da Vinci Science Center’s 25th Anniversary of celebrating outstanding students & educators. Join us as we recognize talented community members for their accomplishments in STEAM.
Guests will have the opportunity to mix and mingle among the exhibits and bid on amazing experiences in the new Da Vinci Science Center at PPL Pavilion and more during the live auction! Experiences include a Sneak Peak Tour of the new facility BEFORE it opens and a guided back-of-the-house visit through the Lehigh River Watershed!
Proceeds benefit the Linny Fowler STEAM Scholarship Fund, which provides funding for rising scholars with limited financial means and teachers with limited budgets so that they can access STEAM Education Learning programs and Teacher Professional Development offered through the Science Center.
A tradition since 1999, the awards (previously known as the Hall of Fame Awards) recognize students who show a passion for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math), and educators who inspire enthusiasm for learning with innovative approaches.
The Science Center recognizes four exceptional high school students in Lehigh and Northampton Counties, who have demonstrated a passion for the sciences both in-and-out of the classroom. Each student receives a $2,000 scholarship.
This is a needs-based scholarship that recognizes an outstanding female high school senior who has demonstrated strong academic ability and a commitment to learning, achievement and serving others in the community. This scholarship provides both a mentorship opportunity as well as financial support of $2,000 to be used toward the cost of tuition.
The Erel STEM Scholarship is funded by Fusun Bubernack, philanthropist and entrepreneur, in honor of her parents, Hasan Fehmi & Sabahat Erel, and their commitment to the importance of quality education and the pursuit of excellence.
These awards honor educators who go above and beyond to engage students in high-quality, innovative STEAM projects that integrate subjects and connect the classroom to the real world. Award recipients will receive a $1,000 cash grant for their school to invest in STEAM education supplies or programs.
