A Mutually Beneficial Partnership

Sacred Heart University President, John J. Petillo said it best himself: "Sacred Heart University gives back to the community where it resides." The Sacred Heart University Discovery Science Center & Planetarium (DSCP) is one of the University's latest community outreach efforts. The University has assisted in the modernization and enhancement of exhibits to offer state-of-the-art, interactive and educational exhibits and programs in science and technology. The relationship between the University and the DSCP is mutually beneficial.

The DSCP will serve as a hub for professional development opportunities for the region’s STEAM and computer science education communities. There is opportunity for internships for students in education, marketing, media, management, communications, graphic design and more. It will also give faculty an opportunity to develop exhibits for SHU classes and the public.
