We are very pleased to announce that Eric Slotegraaf has joined the WonderLab Board of Directors.
WonderLab was established in 1995 as a traveling science outreach program coordinated by six volunteers. In 1998, WonderLab opened a small museum in downtown Bloomington. At that time, fundraising was initiated to build a larger, permanent museum on a downtown site donated to WonderLab by the city of Bloomington. The current award-winning museum opened its doors to the public on March 29, 2003. The two-story 15,000-square-foot facility features exhibit galleries, a flexible programming space, gift store, and an adjacent outdoor garden. It is located adjacent to Bloomington’s B-Line Trail in the heart of the Bloomington Entertainment and Arts District.
Today WonderLab Museum of Science, Health and Technology is a premier center for informal science education and discovery. WonderLab provides opportunities to experience the wonder and excitement of science through interactive exhibits and programs that stimulate curiosity, encourage exploration, connect to the arts and everyday life, and foster lifelong learning.
