POWER UP! ORPHEUM KIDS

We’re excited to launch POWER UP! ORPHEUM KIDS to raise $30,000 by February 7, 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.

WHAT WILL BE POWERED UP?

  • 42% ($12k) - Enhanced museum experiences – Child- and family-centered improvements throughout the museum that fosters a fun and accessible learning environment. For example, funds will support new bright and colorful features in the museum and new rotating exhibit components.
  • 18% ($6k) - Enriched STEAM classrooms – New equipment and supplies used in our upstairs classrooms to grow young minds in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. For example, funds will support the addition of new Lego WeDo and Mindstorm robotics kits, computers and adapters, and flexible-use tables and chairs for our camps and clubs.
  • 42% ($12k) - Improved facilities – Funds will be used to replace a 25-year-old HVAC unit and repair historically-significant elements of the building façade. For example, a new rooftop HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning) unit is desperately needed before the summer to maintain comfortable temperatures in the museum all year round and key tuck-pointing and marquee repairs are needed on the building’s façade.
