Thanks to all who joined us for the 12th Annual CuriOdyssey Benefit: Forces of Nature on Thursday night! We raised over $200,000 during our Fund-a-Need, in addition to $135,000 in sponsorships!

Our ambitious vision is to become San Mateo County's leader in early science learning. With its live animals and original interactive exhibits, CuriOdyssey is a serious science playground designed expressly to stimulate growing young minds. Annually, we provide more than 100,000 young visitors with real science (real animals, real phenomena) through our interactive science exhibits, AZA-accredited wildlife center, and hands-on workshops and camps.

Your gift demonstrates your commitment to STEM education and ensures that every child in our community has access to core science and problem-solving skills that will prepare them for the future in a fast-changing world. Your support will especially enable thousands of children and families to experience CuriOdyssey’s programs, exhibits, and wildlife at a free or reduced cost.

On behalf of the CuriOdyssey staff, board, and rescued wildlife, please accept our heartfelt thanks for your continuous support for all that we do here at CuriOdyssey.

With gratitude,

Best - ABurlingham Blue Sig
