A record number of people visited the Gateway to Science gallery or participated in our educational programs during the recently completed fiscal year (July 1, 2011 – June 30, 2012). We hosted a total of 15,799 compared to 11,822 in the previous fiscal year – that’s a 34% increase! The most notable increases occurred in program enrollment and special event attendance. Gallery attendance was also up, especially school field trips and other group visits.
We are pleased to have hosted visitors from several other towns in North Dakota as well as many other states over the past year. From age 2 to adults, our visitors all seem to have a wonderful time exploring with our hands-on exhibits. It’s the perfect place for families to enjoy time together on a hot or rainy summer day. I hope to see you and your family in the gallery soon!
