Thank you from Co-Chairs
Forty years ago a spark ignited our imagination and thanks to a lead gift from
the Reuben H. Fleet Family Foundation and the vision and imagination of
Preston “Sandy” Fleet, the Science Center was born. Over time the Science
Center grew in physical size and expanded its role to encompass not just
amazing films, planetarium shows and hands-on science exhibits but also
informal science education and teacher training using inquiry-based methods.
Today, with a digital planetarium shared with an IMAX® Dome theater plus
our innovative science education programs, the Fleet is poised to launch forward.
By supporting the new Innovation Fund (IF) that will become the Fleet’s vital
resource for dynamic educational experiences, blockbuster scientific exhibitions
and new technology demystified. IF will ensure that the Fleet expands its critical
role in inspiring minds and connecting individuals to science and technology.
We would like to thank everyone for their support of the Reuben H. Fleet
Science Center over its forty year history. Only with the generosity of friends
and supporters like you, is it possible for the Fleet to fulfill its mission of being a
leader in science and technology education. We also want to extend our thanks
to our hardworking committee, staff and volunteers at the Fleet without whom
this event simply would not have been possible. Nor would it be as much fun to
