The Da Vinci Science Center Annual Fund supports the Center’s efforts toward bringing science to life and lives to science. The Center chooses projects, exhibits, or topics periodically to benefit from Annual Fund gifts. Annual Fund gifts can be made conveniently and safely on the web with a major credit card.
We could not do it without you. Your donations make all the difference in our ability to “bring science to life and lives to science.” This year, with your help, we have been able to expand our pre-school exhibit area by adding “Engineers on a Roll”; one of our biggest investments in permanent exhibits since we opened. In addition, your contributions have helped us:
- Welcome more than 110,000 visitors to the Center and reach more than 40,000 additional students through educational programs.
- Provide free admission to students who attend low income schools through the Science Inquiry Fund.
- Continue our Inventors Lab Program, helping students in grades 5-8 explore the invention process and develop their own invention ideas. With the help of Da Vinci volunteer scientists and engineers, this program has resulted in full U.S. Patents for local young scientists.
- Expand our Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Network, connecting more than 350 women in STEM fields with more than 550 female students, creating a community of current and future STEM professionals through networking, social events, and mentoring.
We are excited about bringing science to children through the above programs and by expanding our exhibits. We hope you will consider a donation so you can be a part of inspiring future scientists, inventors and engineers.
Thank you for your consideration; we are truly grateful for your support.
