Adventure Science Center is an independent, not-for-profit science and technology center. This facility is dedicated to delivering innovative, dynamic learning experiences that open minds to the wonders of science and technology and foster a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
For over 75 years, Adventure Science Center has been bringing science to life for students, teachers, and families in Middle Tennessee and across the U.S.
The science center offers engaging learning experiences and science fun through hands-on, interactive exhibits, innovative programs, and full-dome productions in the state-of-the-art Sudekum Planetarium.
Having Solar at Adventure Science Center will not only reduce its electricity expenses year over year, but it is also more importantly an opportunity for education and engagement. Renewal energies are a topic the museum wants to communicate along with other current 'green' programming. Adventure Science Center intends to develop an exhibit and guest curriculum alongside the solar panel installation. This can introduce this technology in a close-up view for guests and encourage the adoption of renewable energies/solar in their lives.
The planned 72,32 kW solar array will generate 102,009 kWh of electricity annually - avoiding 159,377 CO2 from entering the atmosphere.
This level of savings allows the allocation of expenses to be put towards capital-building projects and exhibits to ensure our experience continues to evolve for guests.
THANK YOU to individuals and organizations who have made contributions to help bring solar to the Adventure Science Center!
