The Future is Now!
Thank you for helping ScienceWorks to:
Buy Our Building,
Build More Exhibits and
Create New Exhibit Areas!
Hands-on and Hand-built
On December 7, 2002, ScienceWorks Hands-on Museum opened its doors for the first time. The opening was the result of a colossal effort on the parts of hundreds of volunteers who joined forces to create a hands-on science museum for the Rogue Valley, borrowing ideas from the best museums in the world and then building it themselves. On September 21 and 22, more than 10 years later, ScienceWorks is launching the next phase of its existence: buying the building.
Why Buy The Building?
Buying our building is a rare opportunity to assure the long-term sustainability of ScienceWorks. Originally constructed for $7 million dollars and then sold to the Kirlin Foundation in 2002 for $1.5 million, the building is now available to ScienceWorks for $850,000. But we have to act fast!
Your support will make it possible to make ScienceWorks more energy efficient. It will help us launch a new, invigorated exhibits department, build a new Learning Lab and create a Tinker Studio -- a work space devoted to learning how to make things yourself while understanding how things work in the real world.
Thank you to everyone who has donated...we're almost to our goal!
ScienceWorks is your science museum!
We serve the mythical State of Jefferson – five counties in Southern Oregon and four in Northern California – and we need all of you to make this happen. We dreamed of this day, and now that it’s here, we need everyone who loves us to pitch in and lend a hand. We are almost there. Together we can do it!
