What We Are About


WTSC has the ability to award grants to students and organizations to assist in scientific research and other projects that will elevate public understanding of science in our lives.  As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we can offer contributors appropriate tax treatment of their donations and the confidence that their funds will go to those projects that will accomplish the stated goals of the organization.

Donations: Project Support

The West Texas Science Center is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of science, mathematics, and nature conversation among the student and adult populations of Abilene, Texas.  It presently has three principal activities:  (1)  Bringing outstanding presenters from the various scientific disciplines to Abilene to lecture to the general public and work with the general academic population in the various public and private schools of the area, (2) conducting field trips and workshops for students in various scientific areas, and (3) providing project support for promising student research.  The organization had no paid staff, and all funds received go to programmatic activities.  The West Texas Science Center invites your interest and support.
