The College of Natural and Applied Sciences (CNAS) at Missouri State University and Discovery Center of Springfield (DCS) share a love of science.
For this reason, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, CNAS initiated and organized a donation drive among the college’s student organizations to benefit DCS.
About the donation
The collected donation items included paper towels, Windex, toilet paper, Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer and laundry detergent.
DCS’ operations depend on the use of these sanitation items on a daily basis as they facilitate truly hands-on learning.
Missouri State’s Pre-Medical Society contributed the highest number of donations.
About Discovery Center of Springfield
DCS serves as an independent nonprofit organization and offers scientific activities for individuals of all ages.
Currently, they are closed to the public. Instead, they are serving as a site that engages children of health care workers.
“DCS is a hands-on science museum committed to inspiring people of all ages who love learning and appreciate science,” Dr. Xiaomin Qiu, associate dean of CNAS, said.
