PITTSBURGH - The Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh is launching a new campaign to gain funding to expand its science center.
Plans for the renovations at the Carnegie Science Center include the expansion of the science, technology, engineering and math programs, along with building a three-story pavilion to house the STEM learning labs and special exhibitions gallery.
The SPARK! Campaign is set to raise $34.5 million and has already reached the goal over halfway with funds standing at $26.5 million.
“It only takes one spark to change a child’s life, and those kinds of transformational moments happen every day at Carnegie Science Center,” said President and CEO of Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh Jo Ellen Parker in a release.
The science pavilion is to be built eastward along the Ohio River facing the point.
