What we're about

Welcome to Rockville Science Center Makerspace at the Rockville Memorial Library in Town Center! This is a public makerspace as a service to local residents and represents city and county support of science and technology initiatives.

The mission of Rockville Science Center, Inc. (RSC) (http://www.rockvillesciencecenter.org/) is to inspire a passion for lifelong exploration of science for our diverse community. Through our programs and quest to bring a permanent interactive Science Center to Rockville and Montgomery County, we work to cultivate a sense of inquiry, discovery, wonder and understanding of the scientific foundations of everyday life.

In 2016 Montgomery County solicited RSC to coordinate staffing and programs for this exciting new space. Our all-volunteer makerspace group serves our local area by providing patrons access to tools and makerspace resources. We inspire collaboration and have a lot of fun creating together!
