McWane Science Center’s mission is to change lives through science and wonder, combining its unique assets to create hands-on science learning experiences that parents and teachers value and kids love. McWane Science Center’s NEW ELEMENT was established in 2013 to identify a select group of young leaders who recognize and appreciate McWane Science Center’s importance to the State and region, and who are committed to ensuring its continued success. Members represent young leaders from business and industry, the legal profession, and the public and non-profit sectors. Members of NEW ELEMENT have the opportunity to network and socialize with like-minded individuals, support McWane Science Center, and become more engaged in science education.
Nominations are accepted throughout the year and made by NEW ELEMENT members as well as McWane Science Center Board and staff.
Members are young people (generally 30-45 years of age) who have demonstrated significant leadership in their respective fields and a strong commitment to the community. An interest or expertise in science is a plus, but certainly not a requirement. Many, but by no means all, of our members are the parents of young children.
As well as…
Absolutely. Spouses or guests are included in all NEW ELEMENT events. With advance notice, members are welcome to bring a prospective member to any event.
At least one NEW ELEMENT event each year will include the children of members.
Members of NEW ELEMENT are asked to make an annual, tax-deductible $500 gift to the McWane Science Center to support its mission to change lives through science and wonder.
