When the Discovery Cube OC was in need of funding to double its size and increase the number of educational programs offered to local students and teachers, F&M was eager to partake in the project.
“F&M has always been involved with philanthropic projects in the Southern California community, so it was encouraging for us to work with them on this transaction,” said Joe Adams, President of the Discovery Cube, a leading family destination in Santa Ana known for hands-on science exhibits and its iconic solar cube.
As part of the Center’s $22-million expansion, a new healthy living pavilion and test kitchen provides live demonstrations teaching families the importance of nutrition, a new environmental education wing teaches guests about California’s natural resources and how to be good environmental stewards, and a new showcase theater houses national blockbuster and world premier traveling exhibits.
“The Walker Family cares about the community we serve, and that is an important value we have in common,” said Mike McGee, Discovery Science Foundation Finance Committee.
