A Message from Joe Adams

DSC Wins National Medal of Service

The Lewis & Clark expedition was planned here. Paul McCartney performed here. The landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act was signed here. And now, in the East Room of the White House, as Martha and George Washington gaze upon us from their grand portraits, the National Medal of Service was presented to Discovery Science Center by First Lady Michelle Obama. It’s a moment I will never forget. And even now, several months aer the ceremony, my thoughts sometimes dri back to the day and I can’t help but also think of all those who made such a poignant occasion possible. The leaders who first dreamed of launching a science center in Orange County three decades ago might never have envisioned a day in which the nation’s highest honor for libraries and museums would be bestowed on their creation. I was thrilled to be joined by my wife Mechelle, our Board Chair Dan Bolar, Congresswoman Lorea Sanchez, and community member Kate Upton as we represented the millions of people whose lives have been dedicated to and impacted by Discovery Science Center. In an odd way, that moment was less a culmination of our work, but more a catalyst of where we need to go. I le energized and even more motivated to push the capability of our science center to the forefront of our industry. To truly create a center that doesn’t stop at inspiration and education, but rather continues to transform our community through impactful initiatives and programs. On the pages of this, our inaugural issue of the magazine Discoveries, you’ll learn about how we’re taking dynamic steps to meet that challenge. You’ll read about our growing campus, which includes plans for a 44,000-square-foot Discovery Pavilion. You’ll also find an introduction to our core initiatives that will be at the heart of our programming. Then you will be introduced to a few of the people who stoke the fires of inspiration like Paul Folino and people who benefited and blossomed from our programming such as Kate Upton. Indeed the National Medal is a testament to the people of our community. Our opportunities for leadership have never been more ripe, and our role never more critical. We thank those of you who have brought us this far and invite the rest of you to join us on this epic journey. At Discovery Science Center, we are passionate about taking the next step in our development and realizing the bright future we can build together for our children. Joe Adams President, Discovery Science Center

ince 1994, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has been awarding the National Medal of Service to libraries and museums around the nation for educational impact and service in their community. And, since 1994, there has never been a science center from California awarded the honor. This past May, that changed when Discovery Science Center was announced as one of the recipients for the 2013 National Medal. The ceremony, which was held in the East Room of The White House, honored this year’s five museum recipients and was presided over by First Lady Michelle Obama. DSC President, Joe Adams and community member, Kate Upton traveled to Washington, D.C. to accept the medal on behalf of the Science Center.

For Joe Adams, who’s been president of the Science Center for ten years, the medal is much more than a shiny accolade in a frame. “This award celebrates and recognizes the hard work and dedication of our team and community leaders towards delivering a mission that is not measured in dollars, but measured in the hearts, minds, and actions of eager learners,” said Adams. “We see this award as a challenge to continue to teach through innovation extending past museum norms, finding partners that align to our mission, and connecting to young minds.” Twenty-three-year old Kate Upton also has a long history with DSC. Kate’s frequent trips to the Science Center began nearly two decades ago, and her interest and enthusiasm in visiting resulted in her mom purchasing an annual

membership. In second grade, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, Kate replied, “a good and faithful scientist.” Kate is currently on track – a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemistry and minors in Math and Physics are already under her belt and she’s currently pursuing a Ph.D. at Cal Tech. Medal winners are selected from nationwide nominations of institutions that demonstrate innovative approaches to public service, exceeding the expected levels of community outreach. This award would not have been possible without the involvement of DSC’s local community, especially its members and donors. THANK YOU for your continued support and for helping DSC achieve this incredible milestone.

Grand Prize Winners • Arjun Dhawan, Newburgh, Ind. “Walking with Sensors” • Cassie Drury, Louisville, Ky. “Exploring Cell Signaling in Wound Healing”

INSPIRES BLOCKBUSTER INVENTIONS T

he inspiration for Arjun Dhawan's science project came from India, while the innovation was born in Indiana. But the eighth-grader's biggest moment arrived when he was on the tennis court. That's where he learned that he had won a trip to California as a finalist in Marvel's IRON MAN 3 Inventor and Innovator Fair, co-sponsored by Discovery Science Center. With the film as inspiration, the Inventor & Innovator Fair invited students in sixth through ninth grades to put on their lab coats and let their imaginations run wild. "I had just finished winning my match when I heard that I'd made the top 12 and was going to California. That was amazing," Dhawan recalled from his home in Newburgh, Ind. And it got beer. Dhawan ultimately was selected a grand prize winner of the contest, which asked sixth through ninth grade students from across the United States to produce innovative projects based on themes from Marvel's IRON MAN 3 film, highlighting science, technology, engineering and math-(STEM) related concepts. The 12 finalists were awarded a trip to California which included: a tour of Broadcom's Corporate Headquarters, a visit to Discovery Science Center, behind-the-scenes time at Walt Disney Studios including the chance to meet with a Disney Imagineer, as well as a day at Disneyland. Their projects were displayed at the famous El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, where the four grand prize winners accepted their awards and were surprised by an appearance by Iron Man himself, Robert Downey, Jr.

This latest science and entertainment partnering builds on the success of its predecessor, the FRANKENWEENIE Science Fair, which was linked to the release of the 2012 Tim Burton film FRANKENWEENIE. Both fairs were sponsored by Walt Disney Studios in collaboration with Discovery Science Center and Broadcom Foundation and its Broadcom MASTERS competition. "This unique partnership gives promise to exciting collaborations in the future," said Paula Golden, Executive Director of the Broadcom Foundation. For Dhawan, the IRON MAN 3 contest experience in Southern California was a whirlwind of learning and fun.

• Anin Sayana, Cupertino, Calif. “A Novel Configuration of Carbon Nanotubes to Inhibit ABCG2 and Selectively Target Chemotherapy-Resistant Cancer Stem Cells" • Megan Swintosky, Hatfield, Pa. “Novel Mutations in the FLCN Gene in Cases of Familial Spontaneous Pneumothoraces”

Dhawan's winning invention was inspired by a family tradition that began in India, where his great-grandmother supported a school for blind orphans. "My family carried on the tradition, and when we returned home (to Indiana) I wanted to do my project on something that would help the blind," Dhawan said. "I connected my love of science and electronics with something that would help other people." Dhawan invented a walking stick specially designed for the visually impaired. It includes a sensor similar to a sonar device used in submarines, detecting obstacles in the user's path. He hopes the device will be manufactured, but he doesn't plan to patent it; he wants it to be as widely available as possible. And now he is planning his next project, for a freshman science assignment. This time he's looking at including nanotechnology, but the new venture will link with his IRON MAN 3 contest success in at least one way.

Strong to the Core By focusing on foundational initiatives, the Science Center is guiding young learners on a path to success.

Environmental Stewardship

For the past 30 years, Discovery Science Center

STEM Proficiency

has been impacting the lives of children through hands-on science education. We inspire the scientists and engineers of tomorrow and instill a sense of creativity and critical thinking for all generations. Where other museums stop at teaching, we continue, going far beyond the normal reach of a traditional science center.

At our foundation lies our core initiatives – four touchstones of learning that guide us as we help to prepare the next generation of teachers and learners. From early-childhood education to STEM proficiency, environmental stewardship to healthy living, these initiatives go to the heart of our mission as a hub of education, inspiration, and transformation. By establishing these four initiatives, “We make our message more tangible, more concrete,” said Janet Yamaguchi, vice president of education. “And when we consider a traveling exhibit or a new program, we can see more easily where it might fit and how we can maximize its impact.”

Early Learning This initiative helps parents employ techniques needed to teach children ages 5 and younger how to read, understand the concept of numbers, interpret complex language and prepare to succeed in school. “How Children Learn” workshops are held multiple times during the year to help parents get their children ready for kindergarten.

?

Did You

Know

California students rank 47th in science proficiency out of 50 states.

The goal is to increase the skills of both students and teachers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Exhibits and programs for each grade level will help students improve their science proficiency in the classroom and beer understand the Next Generation of Science Standards.

This initiative encourages behaviors that result in eco-friendly living and promoting environmental stewardship. The initiative also features a series of community-based events such as watershed cleanups and recycling drives. As with the Eco Challenge exhibit, which is supported by the County of Orange, the Environmental Stewardship Initiative will build partnerships with agencies that share the Science Center’s science-based environmental mission.

Healthy Living A first-of-its-kind, live demonstration kitchen teaching families the importance of nutrition, food choices and how to cook in a healthier manner. Interactive exhibits also immerse young learners in the concepts of body systems, mental health and nutrition. “We’ll be organizing walks, races and bike rides to promote the benefits of an active lifestyle,” Yamaguchi said.

DISCOVERIES

Staying the COURSE At the launch of the Chairman’s Cup 15 years ago, a core group of golfing devotees quickly became ardent supporters of the event. The fundraiser grew to include two days of play on elite courses in places like San Diego, Arizona and Nevada, with an overnight for dinner, camaraderie and learning more about Discovery Science Center programs. The concept proved popular, but it didn’t really take off until aer 2006, when the event was held in Las Vegas on a new course so popular that it necessitated aernoon tee times. The temperature peaked at about 115, “and we were dropping like flies,” recalled philanthropist Paul Folino, a longtime supporter of Discovery Science Center and the Chairman’s Cup.

Aerward, it was decided to steer the event away from the desert, and the idea swily gained traction. How about moving the Chairman’s Cup to the Pebble Beach Golf Links and its sister courses on the Monterey Peninsula? Aer all, it’s one thing to share a golfing experience on beautiful and challenging courses, but it’s quite another to revel in the chance to play three of the finest courses on the planet. Under Folino’s leadership, the event expanded to three days, with puing and chipping contests enhancing the fun. More opportunities were also added for participants to swap stories as well as get detailed information about Science Center programs and campaigns.

FALL

2013

A transition in leadership offers a moment to reflect on the spectacular success of the Chairman’s Cup. “We reached out through our networks and peer groups, and it’s amazing how many people, business executives and philanthropists, started looking forward to this opportunity each year,” Folino said. “The chance to support Discovery Science Center while sharing this experience became more and more popular.” This year’s Chairman’s Cup aracted 55 players and raised over $600K to support the full range of Science Center programs - both records for the event. Over the seven years that Folino has chaired the event, more than $4 million has been raised to help educate and motivate the next generation of scientists and innovators. “What we’ve seen over the years is how this event and the Science Center itself benefit from a multiplier effect,” Folino noted. “We introduce key corporate executives

and commied philanthropists to the critical role that the Center plays in promoting science literacy. Many get involved in our capital campaign as well as the board. Folino credits much of the Chairman’s Cup’s success to its originator, former Discovery Science Center Chairman Kirk Roller. And as he hands the leadership baton (or is that the puer?) to co-chairs Jeff Reeves and Jack Norberg, he’s confident that “they will do great things to build upon past successes.” Folino is looking forward to his next chance to experience the camaraderie of the Chairman’s Cup - and to watch the event’s successes continue to multiply. “I can’t miss the enjoyment of seeing what this event will become,” he said.

To find out more about sponsorship opportunities for next year’s event, please contact Mike Fuhr at 714-913-5026 or mfuhr@discoverycube.org.

“So many times I’ve had the pleasure of hearing participants say how amazed they are at what the Center is accomplishing and that they want to get more involved.” — Paul Folino

The concept proved popular, but it didn’t really take off until aer 2006, when the event was held in Las Vegas on a new course so popular that it necessitated aernoon tee times. The temperature peaked at about 115, “and we were dropping like flies,” recalled philanthropist Paul Folino, a longtime supporter of Discovery Science Center and the Chairman’s Cup.

Aerward, it was decided to steer the event away from the desert, and the idea swily gained traction. How about moving the Chairman’s Cup to the Pebble Beach Golf Links and its sister courses on the Monterey Peninsula? Aer all, it’s one thing to share a golfing experience on beautiful and challenging courses, but it’s quite another to revel in the chance to play three of the finest courses on the planet. Under Folino’s leadership, the event expanded to three days, with puing and chipping contests enhancing the fun. More opportunities were also added for participants to swap stories as well as get detailed information about Science Center programs and campaigns.

A transition in leadership offers a moment to reflect on the spectacular success of the Chairman’s Cup. “We reached out through our networks and peer groups, and it’s amazing how many people, business executives and philanthropists, started looking forward to this opportunity each year,” Folino said. “The chance to support Discovery Science Center while sharing this experience became more and more popular.” This year’s Chairman’s Cup aracted 55 players and raised over $600K to support the full range of Science Center programs - both records for the event. Over the seven years that Folino has chaired the event, more than $4 million has been raised to help educate and motivate the next generation of scientists and innovators. “What we’ve seen over the years is how this event and the Science Center itself benefit from a multiplier effect,” Folino noted. “We introduce key corporate executives

and commied philanthropists to the critical role that the Center plays in promoting science literacy. Many get involved in our capital campaign as well as the board. Folino credits much of the Chairman’s Cup’s success to its originator, former Discovery Science Center Chairman Kirk Roller. And as he hands the leadership baton (or is that the puer?) to co-chairs Jeff Reeves and Jack Norberg, he’s confident that “they will do great things to build upon past successes.” Folino is looking forward to his next chance to experience the camaraderie of the Chairman’s Cup - and to watch the event’s successes continue to multiply. “I can’t miss the enjoyment of seeing what this event will become,” he said.

To find out more about sponsorship opportunities for next year’s event, please contact Mike Fuhr at 714-913-5026 or mfuhr@discoverycube.org.

“So many times I’ve had the pleasure of hearing participants say how amazed they are at what the Center is accomplishing and that they want to get more involved.” — Paul Folino
