Pictured: Kristin and Marley on their visit to the Ontario Science Centre in 2019 before the COVID-19 closure. It was Marley’s 11th birthday, and her dad surprised her with a day off school to spend at the Science Centre. They had a blast!
As a kid, Kristin, his mom and brother, spent PA days discovering and exploring the Science Centre. Fast forward 30+ years—Kristin brought his then two year-old daughter, Marley, for her first visit. Getting the chance to enjoy the Science Centre all over again, reveling in Marley making memories of her own, is a pretty special thing for Kristin.
“I love science and I wanted Marley to experience something I loved,” says Kristin. “I can’t imagine how many times we’ve been there over the years—more often than not spending the entire day there—and it never gets boring. There’s always something new to learn and explore.”
Why is donating to the Ontario Science Centre so important to Kristin? “We’re lucky to be in a position to have our memberships and experience everything the Science Centre has to offer whenever we want”, he says. “Not only is it a fun way to spend the day—it’s a fun way to learn! The Centre was an important part of my childhood and it's been an important part of Marley's childhood. We want to extend that world of wonder and exploration to as many kids as possible!”
Kristin and his family have been members and annual donors for over 10 years. In 2017, they became monthly donors to make an even greater impact, supporting the development and creation of accessible exhibits, programs and events at the Ontario Science Centre that keep curious young minds excited about learning.
