Dear MOST friends,
I am writing to you with a combination of boundless hope, tempered concern, and sincere gratitude. You are a loyal supporter of the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology, and we need your continued generosity more than ever.
The MOST has been at work (and “play”) to increase attendance, refresh exhibits, refurbish the Armory and improve our STEM education programs. 2020 was going to be the year to see those plans through to completion, and get started on other exciting projects: another permanent exhibit, a conversion of the IMAX to a digital platform, and fundraising for our future with our MOST Sustainability Fund.
That plan has been halted as we are temporarily closed to the public, and expect to be reopening under vastly different circumstances. We anticipate having to revise our business model to meet the changing mindset of our visitors and members.
The hopeful part in all of this has been our continued role in providing hands-on STEM education for students even while they are distance learning at home. We have created daily STEM activities for kids to do with their families, a science homework hotline answered by our educators, and host a virtual scavenger hunt in the museum. Even from a distance, the MOST is fulfilling its mission for our community.
This current “virtual MOST” and its physical reopen soon will require your help. Would you kindly please consider a donation today? Any amount you can give will help the staff at the MOST continue to work towards our mission of providing “informal science learning experiences ignite curiosity, encourage discovery and inspire investigation”.
Now more than ever, science and exciting kids about STEM education is critical to our community, our country, our world.
Thank you in advance for your kind consideration. To donate please use the link below. Or send a check, payable to MOST Foundation, to the address below.
As always, I’m grateful for your support.
Lauren Kochian, President
