CURIODYSSEY VIRTUAL GALA 2021
Thank you for joining us!
You helped us raise over $250,000!
Thank you for joining us for Full STEAM Ahead, CuriOdyssey’s 11th Annual Gala and first virtual gala!
Thanks to you and 280 friends who joined us for the 11th Annual CuriOdyssey Gala Full STEAM Ahead on Thursday night, we raised over $250,000 to ensure that we can continue to provide free and low-cost science education programs to children of all backgrounds and abilities.
Our ambitious vision is to become San Mateo County's champion for early science learning. Your gift allows us to increase our impact by supporting local educators in teaching to the new national science standards and enhancing accessibility for the kids who need science enrichment most: those who are underserved or have special needs.
As we look back on this unprecedented year, I am deeply aware of the essential role that you and other generous supporters have played in helping CuriOdyssey to not only survive this crisis but thrive. This month, we were able to welcome visitors back to our outdoor campus for the first time since December. What a change to feel the energy and enthusiasm of our visitors once again!
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.

It's not too late to donate to our Fund-A-Need!
Every child deserves an equal opportunity for a great STEM education.
Help ensure that all families and schools in our community have access to core science and problem-solving skills that will prepare them for the future in a fast-changing world.
