MSiC Home

The MathScience Innovation Center (MSiC), a leader in STEM programming in Central Virginia for over 5 decades, salutes all who are working to ensure that students, educators and families weather the current educational climate during this time of change and collaboration.

The MSiC is also in a season of change as it transitions from its current home on the Central Gardens campus, where it has been for more than two decades, to a business office at SMN Square, located in the Manchester area of the city. We are excited about this change and look forward to continuing to serve students, educators and families in Virginia.

The MSiC will continue to offer cutting-edge hands-on, minds-on, programming focused on robust STEM content and workforce development pathways.

Stay tuned for our Saturday and Summer course schedule, including Little Innovator-Parent/Child classes, Summer Regional Governor’s School and Camp Innovation Summer Camp.
