What is the FSDC?

The Frostburg Science Discovery Center is an interactive learning science museum at Frostburg State University, located in Western Maryland. The FSDC is dedicated to educating the general public in all fields of science, from the social sciences to the physical sciences.

The FSDC started with a very large and generous donation of animal mounts from all over the world. This collection was donated by Dr. Joseph Cavallaro. For more information, see our "Exhibits" page.

We have a wide variety of programs and exhibits that will be frequently changed and updated, so please check back often to learn what we have to offer!
