We interviewed Jeff Mason, Co-Partner, and Angelica Armstrong, Director of Marketing for the T Rex Science Center.
This is new museum set to open in April of 2020.
Jeff talked about the concept of the project.
It is in the former Purity Maid Bread factory on Charleston’s West Side and will soon be the home to the T-Rex Science Center, a dinosaur-centric science and activity center for children and families.
Inside the old factory’s former loading dock, the floor has been leveled and smoothed out. Already, there are giant-sized prehistoric animal fossil models — a Tyrannosaurus rex and a mammoth.
Angelica discussed funding and how they are accepting donations through their ‘Buy a Brick’ campaign. Call 304-400-2706 to learn more.
The mission of the T Rex Science Center is to provide experiential pathways in lifelong learning in science and the arts for children and adults through exhibits, programs and hands on experiences.
The T-Rex Science Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to be the defining hub and preeminent advocate for educational exploration through Science, mathematics, arts, research, technology, engineering and responsibility (SMARTER) concepts.
