Power Up! Orpheum Kids

Power Up! Orpheum Kids

We’re launching POWER UP! ORPHEUM KIDS to raise $30,000 by January 31, 2020, to enhance the children’s museum experience, enrich STEAM classrooms, and improve the facility. Together, we can POWER UP the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum by providing unique museum- and classroom-stimulated experiences for kids that will lay the foundation for future generations of scientists, artists, and innovators. Your contribution will also help us upgrade the museum facilities and provide a comfortable and safe place for kids and families
