Pioneer Law Group is Newest Founding Partner of Sacramento’s Powerhouse Science Center

SACRAMENTO, CA. – The Powerhouse Science Center in Sacramento today announced that Pioneer Law Group, LLP has joined the campaign to help build Northern California’s premier science learning center.

As a founding partner, Pioneer Law Group joins other regional leaders and organizations in a cooperative effort to support the development of this vital new community asset.

Located on the scenic banks of the Sacramento River, the Powerhouse Science Center will function as a model for 21st-century experiential STEM education (science, math, technology, engineering, space) and environmental stewardship. The design will be an exemplary “green” building that serves as an environmental teaching lab.

“One of our firm’s core beliefs is the active support of the community in which we live, work, and play,” said Jeffrey Dorso, Managing Partner. “The Powerhouse Science Center will be an important educational and destination resource, contributing to a more vibrant future for our entire region. We are pleased to add our support to this important community endeavor.”

Pioneer Law Group joins the regional effort of creating a home for a high-tech, hands-on science museum for the Greater Sacramento region that will immerse children in science, technology, engineering and math. The Powerhouse Science Center, future home of the 60-year old Discovery Museum Science Space Center on Auburn Boulevard, will play a key role to inspire young people to become the future engineers and scientists that California and our nation desperately need.

“We are delighted to welcome aboard Pioneer Law Group as our 35th Founding Partner,” said Michele Wong, Interim Executive Director for the Powerhouse Science Center. “Pioneer Law Group shares our goal of transforming a historic Sacramento landmark into a cutting edge educational center, featuring a museum, planetarium, restaurant, and conference center. The Powerhouse Science Center is a tremendous collaborative effort between many dedicated groups and individuals that are all playing a significant role in making this vision of a premier science education center become a reality.”

Supporters of the Powerhouse Science Center include business and civic leaders, clubs and organizations, individuals, and the City of Sacramento.

Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson is recognizing this project as a top priority for Sacramento’s future.

The facility will serve as a public forum, showcasing the latest scientific discoveries in a venue that is accessible to the entire family. The Center will highlight the scientific achievements of the Sacramento region, the latest developments in medical science and technology, and the fundamentals of resource conservation. It will also be utilized as a field trip destination for pre-kindergarten to 12th grade students from throughout the region.

The Center, which will cost an estimated $50 million, has nearly completed its pre-construction phase. The Discovery Museum Science Space Center is scheduled to move from its current location on Auburn Boulevard and become the Powerhouse Science Center (www.powerhousesciencecenter.org) in 2013.
