Executive Summary – Vision to Reality: Critical Dimensions in Science Center Development

October 1st, 1993 | RESEARCH

There is no formula for starting a science center. Science centers are as variable as the communities that surround them and the people who plan them. They may be of modest or monumental proportions and grow at different rates and in a variety of ways. Nevertheless, it is possible to identify a number of common themes and dimensions that appear to be critical to their success.
