The Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture is pleased to announce a grant of $1,000,000.00 over three years to the Exploratorium to support its capital campaign. This grant is made in partnership with the Koret Foundation.
The Exploratorium is one of the nation's most well-regarded and popular science museums. 570,000 people visited the Exploratorium in 2012. Since the museum's founding, over 1,000 participatory exhibits have been created, approximately 600 of which are on the floor at any given time. The exhibit-building workshop space is contained within the museum and is open to view. In addition to the public exhibition space, the Exploratorium has been engaged in the professional development of teachers, science education reform, and the promotion of museums as informal education centers.
Since its move to Pier 15, the Exporatorium has continued to prove its dedication to creative innovation, state-of-the-art technology, hands-on pedagogy, and lifelong learning. The Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture is proud to support it as it continues to grow and "change the way the world learns," as its mission statement reads.
