Fascinate-U is a nonprofit organization founded in 1994. Located in historical downtown Fayetteville, North Carolina; this hands-on museum has been a destination where children have been able to explore their world through creative role-playing for over two decades.  It is the only science museum that fulfills the need for science education among the ten counties of the Cape Fear Region. Because of an increased need for science education in the schools, the Museum has grown to include not only on-site science programming but also outreach programs.
