The Science Mill partners with state agencies, business sponsors, and academic institutions to provide science outreach programs to students in the communities of central Texas. Through interactive exhibits and programs coupled with exposure to science mentors, the Center inspires students to pursue an interest in science and technology-based careers.

Housed in a historic community landmark in the central Texas hill country town of Johnson City, the Science Mill is at the heart of town and is adjacent to the Lyndon B. Johnson family settlement, a National Historic Park operated by the National Park Service.

The adaptation of the Mill into a Science Center prioritizes the stabilization and renovation of the historic structures and introduces minimal connective additions to serve the new science programs and revitalize a recognized community asset.
