Go-Science will enhance the level of science and math literacy among the eastern North Carolina population, serving over 600,000 people in 19 economically depressed eastern North Carolina counties. The Center will be open to the public as a regional resource and will offer programs for people of all ages.

As a key component in the cultural and economic development within Pitt County, Go-Science will enrich the community through its on-site and outreach programs. Such programs will include exciting, hands-on activities relevant to current curriculums while also educating teachers in new technologies that can be used as teaching aids.
Go-Science will include a planetarium; temporary and permanent exhibit spaces; a Challenger Learning Center; The East Carolina University Center for Science, Technology, and Math Education; advanced life-sciences and physics-chemistry classrooms; as well as a local television station weather department and studio.
