As a community-based organization, we fundamentally believe that children are our "Center of Gravity" and as a result, we believe it is our responsibility - as a community - to support the development of strong, creative minds that can generate innovative ideas and solutions for the 21st Century and beyond. Here at the Center of Gravity, we seek to provide equitable opportunities and resources for all children to cultivate their natural curiosity and instinct to research, share, understand, and re-create the world around them.
