OPPORTUNITIES


join us! Your passion and support mean everything! When you decide to sponsor an exhibit or event at the Greensboro Science Center (GSC), your hard-earned dollars go to work immediately. Community support is the lifeblood of our ever-growing and ever-changing grassroots organization. With every visit to the GSC, you will see the names of local friends, families, foundations, and businesses who believe in our science-focused vision for the future and the tremendous economic impact it creates. Our staff might be small, but our results are not! With so many amazing citizens joining our team over the last decade, the GSC has grown from one of the smallest science museums to now the third largest in the state of North Carolina. And, we have only just begun! Help us transform Greensboro into Science City, USA, leading the way in innovation, smart community development, and quality-oflife for everyone. Thank you, Glenn Dobrogosz, CEO Greensboro Science Center

The 2021 Winter Wonderlights ad campaign goal was to build upon the awareness and excitement created in the Triad in 2020. We also expanded the geography to include Raleigh/Durham & Charlotte and increased digital spend & tactics to reach the target where they are regardless of device or platform. A Triad-wide multi-touchpoint, multi-platform campaign utilized traditional media and the mass reach of broadcast & cable TV, local radio, magazine, and Out-of-Home as well as digital tactics including social media, streaming audio, Connected TV, eNews, and banner ads.
