On behalf of the Board and staff of the Sciencenter, we want to thank each and every one of the donors to the Curious. Confident. Inspired. Campaign. We are incredibly grateful to the 275 individuals who helped to make this Campaign a success. In all, the Campaign raised $4.1M – 7% over our goal of $3.8M!

Far more than a number, the funds raised from the Campaign mean generations of children in the region will grow to be confident and inspired learners who use science in shaping a better future for themselves, their families, their communities, and the world.

We hope you will take a moment to explore our completed projects and learn about the many exciting changes that have already been made possible by the Campaign.

And there’s still more to come. Over the next several years, you will see a lot of changes to the Sciencenter including new exhibit galleries on health and wellness and sustainability, new exhibits in the Curiosity Corner and Curiosity Playground that focus on sensory learning, motor skills, and discovery, and continued programs like Science Together for toddlers and preschoolers, and Head Start teacher professional development.
