The people of Harford and Cecil Counties have been developing world-changing technology for over 100 years. Anchored by Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), Northeastern Maryland has been home to inventions that have revolutionized our society — computing, the Internet, artificial respiration, high-speed photography, and so much more. Many of the technological advances first developed at APG for military application have found their way into the everyday lives of our citizens.
The vision for the Discovery Center at Water’s Edge is to be a place where learners of all ages explore, experience, invent, create, and play with technology, leading them to a greater understanding of the scientific principles at play and the history of that technology’s development. This Discovery Center will feature displays and demonstrations that engage and excite our community about STEM, especially our youth.
Discovery Center at Water’s Edge is a charitable organization under section 501(c)(3) and donations are generally tax deductible.
