Science Center Picks Up Steam
The Powerhouse is buzzing again. Since taking the helm in April, Executive Director Wayne LaBar, a 30-year veteran in the business, has set about implementing what the center is calling the “Four Corners Transformation” campaign, which seeks to turn the center into a regional player. “We want to transform the museum into a more impactful and relevant science center for the region,” he said. The goal is to attract not just families and school kids as the center has done for years, but destination tourists as well.
