Dave & DeLaine Poppke Scholarship Fund

Gold Hammer Award Presented to Dave Poppke
Visitors to our exhibit gallery have been delighted for years by the creations of Master Exhibit Developer, David Poppke. Many have even had the opportunity to meet Dave and get a personal tour of the many interactive exhibits he has developed and donated since we opened in November 1994.

Poppke Scholarship Established

Dave’s friends, Burt & Margo Riskedahl, have established a scholarship fund in his and his lovely wife, DeLaine’s, name to provide opportunities for young people to participate in our educational programs.¬†As the Poppke Scholarship Fund principle grows, the interest earned will provide opportunities for many students in the future.

This scholarship fund is a fitting tribute to Dave and DeLaine. We are grateful for their commitment to the children who visit Gateway to Science.
