Our Vision A living museum that educates, provokes thought, informs, and inspires action, while capturing the Spirit of Silicon Valley, for diverse audiences. Innovation is the lifeblood of Silicon Valley and the future of our country.
Our Relevance Science and technology education transforms lives and creates opportunities to break cycles of poverty, improving overall quality of life. <Sandy Robertson/Dave House quote> By featuring science and technology issues relative to everyday life, The Tech Museum’s programs and exhibits provide relevant context for diverse audiences in an unbiased environment. This context allows for informed decision-making regarding issues affecting our lives and our world. The Tech Museum is a unique, living museum showcasing the Spirit of Silicon Valley with its cutting-edge technologies that are changing the world.
The Challenge: Constant Renewal Cutting edge means keeping our galleries in an ever-changing mode. To represent The Spirit of Silicon Valley and the world’s innovations, and to inspire future innovators , our learning experiences must be timely and relevant. The Tech Museum must constantly observe, evaluate, and renew exhibits and programs.
Fulfilling Our Vision The Keeping Up With the Future Campaign Will: support ongoing exhibit renewal, expansion and renovation, incorporating the latest trends in technology; enable the next generation of technology leaders to join the historical visionaries who founded this institution, creating a new rank of technology leaders to point the way; broaden the museum’s critical base of support. How Will The Tech Museum Accomplish Fulfillment of Its Vision?
Transforming Our Galleries The Board of Directors of The Tech Museum is committed to perpetually updating the museum’s content to reflect current technology trends in Silicon Valley. For the next 5 years, Phase 1 campaign funds will be used to continue making initial renovations. Beyond that, Phase 2 campaign funds will endow the renovation process. How Will We Accomplish Transformation?
