Thank you to the companies and individuals who have stepped up to declare that they believe in the importance of the power of unstructured, child-led play for young developing minds. They are helping to fund the “Lighting Buffalo’s Imagination” exhibit which pays homage to Buffalo’s visionaries, inventors and creators, celebrating their ideas, and offering interactive opportunities for the next generation of inventors to engage with their innovations and learn to THINK BIG! As Explore & More expands to their new home at Canalside we have ambitious plans for literacy development, academic outreach, and expanded age groups with play centered STEM based learning. Please join us in thanking and supporting the organizations and individuals who are supporting our efforts with a $1,000 or larger donation, designating them as “100 Education Partners”!
