‘To excite and inspire’: preview of Aberdeen science center to open this fall
The Baltimore Sun, 07/08/2019
Starting this fall, the Amtrak station in Aberdeen is set to host a 1,200 square foot preview of the APG Discovery Center, a science and technology center with plans to open in 2022. The preview center will include a number of interactive exhibits exploring robotics, computer science, and virtual reality. The exact plans for the full center are still uncertain, but a report by RESI found that the full APG Discovery Center has the potential to generate between $1 million and $13 million in annual economic output, depending on the number of visitors.

For the state of Maryland, predictions are for a fairly strong economy — about 58,000 jobs for 2019, said Daraius Irani, a WalletHub expert and vice president of strategic partnerships and applied research and chief economist of the Regional Economic Studies Institute at Towson University. “But expect to see minor job losses in 2020 of about 2,000 and accelerating in 2021 to about 19,000 given current conditions,” Irani said.
