The Science Center Fund


This fund was established by Emil R. and Edith Calvert Spees to support the operation and continuation of The Science Center of Southern Illinois, located in University Mall in Carbondale, Illinois. This special place is dedicated to the awareness and exploration of hands-on science for children, from infants to teens, and their families in the southernmost Illinois area. Their mission is "To nourish and preserve each child's innate curiosity through hands-on, inquiry-based exploration."
