To celebrate the 1st birthday of PPG SCIENCE PAVILION™ at Carnegie Science Center, visitors who have June birthdays will receive free general admission to Carnegie Science Center on Sat., June 15, courtesy of PPG. Visitors can redeem the offer by mentioning their birth date at the admissions counter on June 15.
PPG Science Pavilion, which opened June 16, 2018, is a $33 million, four-floor, 48,000-square-foot expansion that has increased the Science Center’s capacity to deliver informal STEM education and career awareness programs and offer state-of-the-art touring exhibitions. The expansion also includes PointView Hall, a modern conference and event space that overlooks the city.
Since its opening, PPG Science Pavilion has served as a hub for a multitude of educational and entertainment events, from river chemistry camps and coding classes to beautiful weddings and dazzling galas. In its first year, PPG Science Pavilion welcomed more than 100,000 visitors in the Scaife Exhibit Gallery for touring exhibitions, such as the now-on-display Da Vinci The Exhibition; more than 4,600 students in grades K–12 for camps and classes in the FedEx STEM Learning Labs; and hosted more than 100 special events.
Thanks to PPG’s generosity, visitors with June birthdays who come to the Science Center on June 15 will get to enjoy free admission to the museum’s four floors of 200+ interactive exhibits, including Highmark SportsWorks®, Buhl Planetarium, and USS Requin (SS 481) submarine. Da Vinci The Exhibition, laser shows, and The Rangos Giant Cinema require additional tickets.
PPG and the Science Center began their partnership 37 years ago, starting with PPG’s support of the Science Center’s predecessor organization, Buhl Science Center, in 1981.
PPG Science Pavilion was the centerpiece of SPARK! A Campaign for Carnegie Science Center, which launched in 2014. Through the campaign, more than 350 donors contributed a total of $46 million for the Science Center’s strategic plan’s signature projects. PPG and the PPG Foundation’s $7.5 million gift to the SPARK! Campaign is the single largest donation in the history of the Science Center.
