Rearch and Learning Center

About | This Week in the RLC | For Parents | Recent Research | For Researchers | Researcher Spotlight

The Research and Learning Center is a collaboration between
the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and the Southwest Center for Mind, Brain and Education. 

Our goal is to support the research of local scientists and their students by providing space, publicity, scheduling, and participants in a natural research setting. 

Two New Research Opportunities Begin in 2015! 

  • Family Nights and Home School Events--These are great weekday/weeknight opportunities for professors, students, and/or class assignments to do research, intervention, training, or other service in the RLC! Contact 
  • RLC Collaborations with the Planetarium
    • Digital Research
    • Live or near-live data visualization
    • Immersive environments (colors, sounds, etc.) can set the mood and change quickly and on cue

Conduct your research in the RLC!

Saturdays, 10 A.M. to 4 P.M.
