So, we have all this great stuff, now what?

    Once we determine that your school or council will be getting a new
High-Tech Productions.com Science & Technology Center, you  will start to receive equipment, supplies and displays for the center. It is up to the individual center to set everything up and maintain it.

     We have found that it works best to group similar items together and place them in separate areas of the building. For example, most of the centers have a computer section, a weather section, a nature area, etc.

Earth Sciences Section     Aerospace Technologies Section     Space Sciences Section

    You should also set up one or more areas for classroom instruction, lectures & demonstrations. If possible, place a computer in each section with that areas software already loaded.

    Another idea for your Science Center would be to start a free loaner program for the video tapes, CD-ROM's & DVD's that each center has. This could work well for the Students and Scouts as well as the teachers and adult leaders. 


Once the center is completed, it's time to announce it to the rest of the community. Your school or council should mail announcements to all local Scout Troops as well as send out press releases to local newspapers, radio and TV stations, schools, etc.

 If you have a school or council newsletter and/or web site,
make sure to mention it there also. The more publicity, the better.

Get decorations for the Grand Opening    We suggest that you also have an official "Grand Opening" for the center and invite local dignitaries, parents, high ranking Scouts, the press, etc. (At the Grand Opening of the Camp Kunatah/TMR Science Center, we had the local radio station, (WSUL) broadcasting live from the camp all day and each Scout that attended received a Science Center Pad, Pen & T-Shirt). Get decorations for the Grand Opening

    You can even start a campaign to gather more items for the Science & Technology Center, (computers, software, nature items, etc.).

     Each center is also invited to visit the Science & Technology Centers at other schools & camps. You can share ideas and suggestions with each other and even swap items from center to center.

    We also have put together a "Touring Space Exhibit" which is available Free of Charge to any of the Science & Technology Centers.

   One of the things we send to each Science Center is a complete  Digital Weather Station. You can easily post the current weather conditions on your school, troop, camp or council's web site.

    We have also provided each center with a complete
NASA CD-ROM & DVD Educational library

and  an extensive assortment of Educational Video Tapes

Another idea for your Science Center would be to start a free loaner program for the video tapes, CD-ROM's & DVD's that each center has. This could work well for the Students and Scouts as well as the teachers and adult leaders. 

As you can tell from all of the links on the left, this web site has plenty to offer. We suggest you explore the different links and use them at the centers to start new programs and plan exciting activities.
