Everyday science with extraordinary fun!


Roper Mountain, a special facility of Greenville County Schools,  exists because of a unique partnership of public ownership, corporate sponsorship, private support, and volunteers. During the school year 500-600 students visit Roper Mountain every day for high quality “learning labs.

Public programs at the Center are Friday “Starry Nights” programs and Second Saturday. In the summer we also offer the popular Butterfly Adventure, more than 100 summer exploration camps and Summer Adventures and Laser Shows in the Hooper Planetarium.
