Cultural Environment in Tallahassee

I did not necessarily expect to experience a culture shock with my job at the Challenger Learning Center, as I have already lived in Tallahassee for a few years— but as a student, not a community member. At my job, a lot of the children’s parents work in government positions because we are located so close to the capital and adjacent government buildings. However, I have been able to interact with a lot of the Tallahassee community just from being present at the Challenger whenever field trips come in. So many different people of different ages come in to watch science demonstrations or watch movies in the planetarium. This has allowed me to observe the culture in my community more so than I would be able to simply going to class. I know now that after I eventually leave Tallahassee, I will leave with a stronger concept of what the community looks like here!
