Campaign Update Welcome


Welcome to the Launch the Future Campaign Updates

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Science Center's Launch the Future campaign update! We’ve created this newsletter to share with you our progress towards building Northern Virginia’s new science center.

When the COVID-19 crisis hit our region, temporarily closing the Lab, we began emergency planning to continue our mission virtually, subsidize revenues, and secure the progress of the Launch the Future campaign. Since March, the Lab has shifted our mission online, offering virtual experiences through our website and social media platforms. We are grateful to have secured a federal PPP loan and for the generosity of our incredible supporters who are enabling us to continue our mission today. Lastly, we are especially thankful that our Pivotal Partners for the new science center, who have committed over 85% of total campaign funds, are able to continue their support

These unprecedented times have presented numerous hardships and remind us of the critical role science plays in solving global challenges. As we continue to support each other and find solutions, I believe the vision for the future science center offers a beacon of hope for us all.
