Galaxy Gala guests were the first to hear the Center's announcement of the brand new, interactive facility known as CREATE, opening in late spring 2015 in the former Phoenix Museum of History. In this space, visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to learn new skills, tackle real-world design challenges, and become part of a network of innovators and creative thinkers. Galaxy Gala "makers" participated in a hands-on activity to see which table could create the most inspired design using bendable glow sticks and connectors! To quote one Galaxy Gala attendee, "This is the most fun fundraiser I've ever been to in this town!"
Arizona Science Center's mission is to inspire, educate, and engage curious minds through science. Our vision is to be a global leader in science experiences. The Center is dedicated to public education and creating a passion for science by offering visitors new and relevant access to science in ways that excite and delight.
Proceeds from the Galaxy Gala benefit the Science Center’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs.
