Fundraising Events

The RMSC continues to inspire our community by:

  • Serving as our area’s resource for informal science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education
  • Providing more than 200 hands-on exhibits that promote inquiry-based learning
  • Investing in our area’s future through our preschool, science day camps and workforce preparation and visitation assistance programs

We’re proud to be the home of more than 1.2 million collection items, including many that tell the story of Rochester’s own innovative past.

Your support through our fundraising events helps us continue to serve our community. Get involved today!
