At the Atlas Science Center, we offer fun, hands-on exploration and discovery of all things paper – the art, history, science and technology. We have interactive and engaging educational programs, exhibits, and activities. Every visitor has an opportunity to experience the process of making paper by hand in our paper lab. We educate over 6,000 schoolchildren each year through curriculum enhancing field trips, which explore the world of paper with STEM learning activities.
