The South Shore Natural Science Center is pleased to announce that they will once again be hosting the Norwell High School Science Center Art Show, featuring artists from all levels of the high school art curriculum.  The show will be open for viewing March 7 through April 2, 2018.  An Artist Reception will be held Saturday, March 10 from 2-4pm.

For the past 18 years, the student artists of Norwell High School have created and gathered their best projects for display at SSNSC.   According to Art Educator Nathan Nottingham, “The show represents all levels of the high school art curriculum.  Students are selected based on their enthusiasm towards their work as much as the overall craftsmanship.  We love this show because we get to showcase a large number of students in an awesome local community space that makes Norwell special.”

The mission of Norwell Public Schools, in partnership with the community, is to provide excellence in education through a challenging and supportive environment, empowering students to be versatile, innovative, and responsible citizens who are prepared to navigate and contribute to a dynamic global society.

Come join us to celebrate these young artists at a reception on Saturday, March 10 from 2-4pm at the South Shore Natural Science Center, 48 Jacobs Lane, Norwell, MA.

About the South Shore Natural Science Center:

The South Shore Natural Science Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about the natural and cultural environments of the South Shore. Our mission is to provide natural science experiences that educate, excite, and commit every generation to preserve the environment and to encourage responsible use, stewardship and enjoyment of our natural resources. The South Shore Natural Science Center is located on 30 acres surrounded by 200 acres of town conservation/recreation land consisting of meadows, woodland, and a pond. The Science Center is also home to the EcoZone – an interactive museum featuring live native animals, owl exhibits, Children’s Garden, and 6 interpretive trails. 

The South Shore Natural Science Center was started in 1962 by a group of like-minded individuals, led by Norwell’s Cap’n Bill Vinal (often referred to as the father of nature education), with the goal of providing nature programs to the youth of the south shore.

The group purchased a second-hand school bus, and aptly named it Flora, using it to conduct field trips and nature programs in the woods and ponds around the south shore. Flora was sold a few years later, as the group formed a non-profit organization and set about building the South Shore Natural Science Center into a museum and environmental education center.

Today’s Science Center offers a wide variety of nature programs for children and adults, a summer camp, nature preschool, and is home to the EcoZone exhibit hall, created with the assistance of noted wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin.
