Science center takes on expanded role

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A science center in Louisville has a new name and a broader focus.

Officials say the Louisville Science Center, so named since 1993, will now be known as the Kentucky Science Center and it will have an expanded scope. Executive Director Joanna Haas says that the changes will help the facility reach "all around the state."

She says the changes are in line with a measure the General Assembly passed this year declaring the center, which is owned by Metro government, as the Kentucky's official science center.

The center has been taking on a bigger role in providing programs outside Louisville for several years. One recent addition is a van that is used to transport programs to schools.
