A realtor by profession, Roxanna Anspach Devlin spends her free time away from work volunteering in the community. Roxanna Devlin has served on the boards of both the Nashville Children’s Theatre and Adventure Science Center.
A not-for-profit organization in Nashville, the Adventure Science Center was established in 1945 and features nearly 200 interactive exhibits that encourage hands-on exploration in various areas of science. The center’s programs and special events draw in more than 300,000 visitors each year.
One of the Adventure Science Center’s programs, the Science Explorers Club, invites young scientists between the ages of 12 and 14 to join in on the construction and programming of a LEGO Mindstorms EV3. The building of the robot, which features touch, color, and infrared sensors, helps shape practical machine-building skills and knowledge of participants. The fee to participate is $120 and $150 for members and nonmembers, respectively.
