Invitation

The Rockville Science Center (RSC) will host a series of community brainstorming sessions to determine an overall business plan for a brick-and-mortar facility.

We need you! We’re issuing an open invitation to everyone in the community, including scientists, doctors, entrepreneurs, researchers – the tinkerers in their garages (most of the world’s best inventions have come from history’s version of the suburban garage) – teachers, concerned parents, interested children, accountants, architects, zoologists, and Zumba enthusiasts, to come to our brainstorming sessions. The idea is to touch as many citizens of Rockville and the surrounding area as we can and infect them with the idea that the RSC is not only science and technology, but also a connection to the businesses and people in our community. When we have a facility we want you to say, “yeah, I worked on that idea”, because then we will have reached our goals.

Details

To quantify the commitment: 1-2 hours on a Saturday morning – for as many Saturdays as one cares to participate. We anticipate a total of 6 sessions.

Next Sessions: 

Saturday, July 11, 2015
Saturday, July 25, 2015

Time: 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. (Coffee & donuts at 8:30 a.m.)

Location: To be finalized soon

Discussion topics for Finance and Facility generated so far:
-New Construction: part of next City community center
-King Farm: see the King Farm Farmstead Property Condition Assessment 2014
-Old Schools: Lincoln High, Rock Terrace
-Other ideas?

Brainstorming

We have developed a dedicated core group which has been building on ideas and creating the Center we will love. When this project is finished – and if we attract the attention we are striving for – then the sheer momentum of citizens who want this to happen will indeed motivate our elected officials, philanthropists, and generous business leaders to make it happen.

Final Plan: We’ll announce a date in September to report on all the activity during an open house for everyone in the community.
