Virginia – A public-private partnership (P3) between the Children’s Science Center and the Science Museum of Virginia, the Commonwealth of Virginia, Loudoun County, and private philanthropy is helping to launch a $75 million campaign to build a world-class interactive science center.

Only $10 million more is needed to fully fund the Launch the Future campaign, which aims to create a 70,000-square-foot science center located at the Kincora development in the Dulles Technology Corridor.

The facility will feature large-scale, interactive exhibits focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM); themed experience zones; space for classrooms, temporary exhibits, and gatherings; a highly-efficient and accessible design; and access to nature with an adjacent public park.

The new science center will be an extension of the Science Museum of Virginia. Donations are being accepted to help complete the campaign by December of next year.
