Mindstorm Lends Digital Media Production Expertise as Newest Powerhouse Science Center Partner | Arts & Culture
SACRAMENTO, CA. – The Powerhouse Science Center in Sacramento today announced that Mindstorm Creative, Inc. has joined the campaign to build the premier science learning center serving Northern California.
As a founding partner, Mindstorm Creative, Inc. joins other regional leaders and organizations in a cooperative effort to support the development of this vital new community asset, and will lend their digital media production expertise to visually present the project.
Located on the scenic banks of the Sacramento River, the Powerhouse Science Center will function as a model for 21st-century experiential STEM education (science, math, technology, engineering, space) and environmental stewardship. The design will be an exemplary “green” building that serves as an environmental teaching lab.
“We are very excited about the creative possibilities of visually presenting this worthwhile project to the Sacramento community,” said Ron Kendall owner/creative director for Mindstorm Creative Inc.
Mindstorm joins the regional effort to create a home for a high-tech, hands-on science museum for the Greater Sacramento region that will immerse children in science, technology, engineering, and math. The Powerhouse Science Center will play a key role in inspiring young people to become the future engineers and scientists that California and our nation desperately need.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome aboard Mindstorm Creative, Inc. as one of our founding partners,” said Michele Wong, Interim Executive Director for the Powerhouse Science Center. “Mindstorm shares our goal of transforming a historic Sacramento landmark into a cutting edge educational center, featuring a museum, planetarium, restaurant, and conference center. The Powerhouse Science Center is a tremendous collaborative effort between many dedicated groups and individuals that are all playing a significant role in making this vision of a premier science education center become a reality.”
Supporters of the Powerhouse Science Center include business and civic leaders, clubs and organizations, individuals, and the City of Sacramento. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson recognizes this project as a top priority for Sacramento’s future.
The facility will serve as a public forum, showcasing the latest scientific discoveries in a venue accessible to the entire family. The Center will highlight the scientific achievements of the Sacramento region, the latest developments in medical science and technology, and the fundamentals of resource conservation. It will also be a field trip destination for pre-kindergarten to 12th grade students from throughout the region.
The Center, which will cost an estimated $50 million, has nearly completed its pre-construction phase. The 60-year old Discovery Museum Science & Space Center on Auburn Boulevard is scheduled to move from its current location and become the Powerhouse Science Center (www.powerhousesciencecenter.org) in 2014.
