This year we’re showcasing all things curious—all for the sake of science!
We need your support to make the Touch and See Lab a thriving environment for science learning! Give today and double your impact with $20,000 in matching gifts!
UPDATE: Thanks to an additional $5,000 in matching funds, we've increased our campaign goal to $20,000!
A Thriving Environment for Science Learning
Opening in the new Bell Museum in summer 2018, the Touch and See Lab is a space for all things curious. The space will feature live animals and insects, a collections room with over 4,000 real specimens, science activities, and more! Even better—everything can be touched in this unique environment of free-choice, directed, and hands-on learning.
And most importantly, what results in this fascinating space is more effective science learning! The Touch and See Lab is designed for how all ages learn best, through a mix of observation, compare-and-contrast, and sensory engagement.
Make a gift today to:
- Equip the Touch and See Lab with tools needed for hands-on physics, chemistry, geology, and biology activities.
- Increase the number of species and specimens in the collections to teach about the fascinating diversity of life on earth.
- Provide supplies and care for our educational live animals and insects.
- Make science education thrive for over 100,000 learners a year.
