We thank these extraordinary supporters for their generous contributions to the Exploratorium, year after year.
Genentech has supported the Exploratorium for more than 20 years. When we moved to our Pier 15 campus in 2013, Genentech became an early partner in our work to envision a 21st-century model for bringing life science learning to the public. A four-year research and development process, with Genentech’s support, enabled us to design a new permanent collection of more than 20 exhibits, Cells to Self: Exploring the Life Inside You
, that weaves together the fascinating story of human cells.
Currently and looking forward, Genentech is providing valuable support for our teacher professional development programs, as we develop new models for genetics education that embrace our current understanding of the human genome, and informed by the public’s increasing access to personal genomic information. Genentech also provides annual field trip funding for public school students from South San Francisco to visit the Exploratorium. Together, the Exploratorium and Genentech continue to build on our shared commitment to equitable access to science educational resources for students and teachers across the Bay Area.
