Heart of America Science Resource Center is a unique blend of hands-on science activities and science resources for young and old, groups and families. We are in the process of renovating an 8,000 square foot building located in Haviland, Kansas along busy U.S. Highway 54. The Center currently houses a multipurpose science lab, a lapidary lab, and a museum display hall. Ongoing renovation includes a conference room, resource and gift shop, and science and history museums. The Center also serves as a launch point for a variety of field excursions. Join us as we take scientific truth to this generation!
