Annual Gala

We’re back! Get ready for the exciting return of the Connecticut Science Center Gala on Saturday, October 1, 2022!

Grab your DeLorean and travel Back to the Future in support of inspiring programs to meet the current and future science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) workforce needs of our region. We return to an IN PERSON night at the Connecticut Convention Center featuring cocktails, a seated dinner, auctions, live science, live music, dancing, and more!

Gala go-ers will also celebrate the STEM heroes and innovators in our community helping us get Back to the Future with a special presentation of the 2022 STEM Achievement Awards and Petit Family Foundation Women in Science Leadership Awards.
