Hands On Gainesville
Hands On Gainesville is a local nonprofit that promotes hands on STEM education in the Gainesville, Florida area. Our organization encourages a student as apprentice approach to learning, with the belief that learning by doing leads to better understanding. Our mission is to encourage students to see science everywhere in the world and especially in their community.
Towards this goal, we connect student groups with community businesses and mentors to design and build exhibits that showcase the scientific principles involved in the business. The exhibits are owned by the businesses, but designed and built by the students.
