Francis Malcolm Science Center

Funds received by the Francis Malcolm Science center will be used to enhance their outdoor classroom.  This will include supplies such as tables for outdoor learning opportunities, building bridges over wet areas, and benches along observation trails.  Additionally, funds will be used to purchase supplies that students will need including nets to catch critters that they may be studying, having a few pairs of boots for children who might forget theirs and other supplies as the needs arise.
