Fernbank Science Center
The Fernbank Science Center is a museum, classroom, and woodland complex that is owned and operated by the DeKalb County School System. It provides programs for the science education of local students, pre-K-12. Both its planetarium and observatory are open for public shows on specific occasions. Fernbank contains many materials for instruction, including dinosaur skeletons, rocks and minerals, a collection of tektites, an Aeronautics Education Laboratory and an electron microscope lab. The center also has an authentic Apollo spacecraft from the unmanned Apollo 6 Saturn V test flight. The nearby Fernbank Museum of Natural History is a private non-profit organization that is separate from the Science Center.
