Annual Highlights Historic Preservation at Broad Street Station

The Science Museum of Virginia takes its stewardship of historic Broad Street Station seriously so that future generations can admire its incredible architecture and celebrate the wonders of science. Several major projects in 2015 demonstrated the Museum’s commitment to preserving this historic community resource. This winter the Museum led a massive restoration of the building’s signature design element, the interior dome of the Rotunda. Crumbling plaster due to water damage from a deteriorating sprinkler system prompted the restoration. The Museum brought in conservator and historic paint analyst, Susan L. Buck, Ph.D., to analyze and identify the original paint color of the Rotunda’s interior dome ceiling and adjacent decorative masonry. Six stories of scaffolding were erected inside of the Rotunda to conduct repairs, resurface and repaint over a period of several weeks. During the restoration the Museum was able to upgrade the ceiling’s acoustics, dramatically reducing the echo effect. It was crucial that the work did not change the historic character of the space and the Virginia Department of Historic Resources granted approval to the project. With a once-in-a-generation undertaking on track with the construction of Speed, the reinstallation of the Main Concourse provided an opportunity for other critical repairs to the building that will have a long-term impact on its condition and ensures stewardship of the artifacts displayed there. The roof of the Main Concourse will be replaced and outfitted with modifications necessary for the installation of the SR-71 Blackbird. The ceiling of the Main Concourse is receiving the same paint and acoustical treatment as the Rotunda project completed earlier in the year.




A critical infrastructure project to occur prior to the installation of Speed is the replacement of the 22 clerestory windows lining the Main Concourse. The Roller-Bottimore Foundation recently awarded the Museum $75,000 to support replacement of the windows that line the Main Concourse.

SR-71 Blackbird The world’s fastest and highest flying production aircraft, the SR-71 Blackbird, is preparing to move from the Virginia Aviation Museum to the Science Museum of Virginia. This iconic, supersonic stealth plane will become the focal point of the Museum’s new exhibition gallery, Speed, opening 2016. The SR-71 Blackbird is a marvel of engineering and technology developed by Lockheed Martin Corporation’s Skunk Works® division under the helm of engineer Clarence L. "Kelly" Johnson. To date, the SR-71 Blackbird was and remains the world’s fastest and highest-flying manned aircraft. After its maiden voyage in December 1964, the Blackbird served the military for over three decades and still has unmatched capabilities. It is capable of flying at Mach 3.2 – reaching a record speed of 2,193 mph and altitudes over 85,000 feet. Moving the SR-71 indoors into a climate controlled environment is crucial to its conservation, though not without its challenges. In June, engineers and Worldwide Aircraft Recovery experts raised the Blackbird using cranes to calculate the correct altitude for its placement in its new home. Two cranes raised the iconic plane to determine the angle of attack and roll, determining the specific orientation with degree finders and other measuring instruments. Worldwide Aircraft has experience moving over 2,500 aircraft – from priceless vintage planes to modern jets – including moving this specific SR-71 Blackbird from California to Virginia in 1999. The aircraft recovery company will oversee the entire move of the Blackbird: from disassembly to packaging and transportation to reassembly inside of the Science Museum of Virginia. With a wingspan of 55 feet, the Blackbird will fit snugly inside of the Museum’s Main Concourse where it will be featured as the principal artifact for the upcoming Speed exhibition – unveiling the mind-blowing intersection of motion and time across a world of science and technology.

The Aluminaut Created by Reynolds Metals Company in 1964, the Aluminaut is the world’s first aluminum-created submarine. It set a record for the deepest dive by a submarine and travelled the globe to aid scientific research and emergency salvage missions. An experimental vessel, the Aluminaut was based in Miami, Florida and was operated from 1964 to 1970 by Reynolds Marine Services, doing contract work for the U.S. Navy and other organizations, including marine biologist Jacques Cousteau. The 80-ton, 15.5 meter manned deep-ocean research submersible was built by Reynolds Metals Company, which was seeking to advertise the utility of aluminum. The Aluminaut is best known for helping recover a lost unarmed U.S. atomic bomb in 1966 and recovering its smaller fellow Deep Submergence Vehicle (DSV), Alvin (DSV-2) in 1969, after Alvin had been lost and sank in the Atlantic Ocean the previous year. After retirement, the Aluminaut was donated to the Science Museum of Virginia. In October the Aluminaut was moved from its longtime home behind the Main Concourse to the west side of the Garner Pavilion. This move was necessary as part of the construction of Speed and the Dewey Gottwald Center. In its new location the Aluminaut will enjoy greater visibility and will be in the proper location for incorporation into the Museum’s master site plan.



Making Things in the 21st Century Just what is the “Maker Movement?” The Maker Movement refers to the increasing number of people employing do-it-yourself (DIY) techniques and processes to make, well, things! While some makers use today’s high-tech gadgets to demonstrate new technology in coding, robotics or virtual reality, many others employ traditional methods to create everyday products and art of every medium - you name it! In the spirit of making things, the Museum has a new space open for teens and a new permanent exhibition in the pipeline for guests of all ages to enjoy. The MiX is a space designed specifically for teens, by teens. It is an open and safe environment for teens to hang out, mess around with a variety of science and technology resources and “geek out” with more in-depth projects and workshops. The MiX features the latest technology – including ozobots, Macs, GoPro Cameras and a giant green screen – where teens have their very own space to work solo or collaborate with other students. Student mentors from Virginia Commonwealth University’s daVinci Program are on site to offer assistance as needed, but the various projects are designed and executed by the students themselves. The success of the recent RVA MakerFest at the Museum is evidence that an exhibition like The Forge will capture guests’ interests and help inspire and engage audiences. This permanent exhibition will be installed on the Museum’s second floor, in the space currently occupied by Journey through Life. The Forge is a place where visitors build things. It’s a workshop powered by each individual’s unique skills, passions and creativity, leading to countless different results. Unlike a traditional gallery, The Forge is a project-driven experience. Each guest chooses how much to invest based on individual interest and skill. For some, this will be their first experience working with tools. For others, The Forge will be a resource they utilize for ongoing projects.

Digital Dimension There is no doubt that the public appetite for science is growing. The interface between science and culture continues to shift and is a constant point of excitement, interest and debate. The Museum has long held that science cannot be presented in isolation but as an integral part of our culture, intersecting with the arts and humanities. Today’s guests interact with popular culture – and each other – far differently than they did a decade ago, or even a year ago. Tomorrow’s Museum guests will be people for whom computers and multimedia have already played a prominent part in their lives – through school, recreation and work experiences. So how do we deliver our mission of Inspiring Virginians to enrich their lives through science in keeping with today’s technology? The Boost! exhibition features innovative technology that allows guests to track their progress over time – through a Boost! chip – and provides the Museum with vital information about the guest experience. The MiX is challenging teens every day with the latest technology in its open-ended project environment. A new Tint monitor displays Twitter social feeds on a variety of science topics, providing another platform for guests to keep up with current science news.



Today, the Museum is developing a smart phone application designed to take its physical exhibitions to the technologically-enabled masses and allows guests to interact with exhibits in a way never before possible. The app supports wayfinding and the interpretation of the building. It will help guests both navigate the building and enhance the experience. The mobile app coincides with an overhaul of the Museum’s website to make it more responsive and user friendly.


Events, Exhibitions and Programs Science After Dark Ongoing

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day January 19

In February, Farm Table sponsored Science After Dark and provided a cooking demonstration in the Boost! kitchen. In October, Science After Dark: GLOW brought in over 1,000 guests and sold out all three Dome Features for the evening. The Back to the Future theme offered two blacklight rooms for guests to explore luminescence and phosphorescence and showcased a DeLorean in the Rotunda.

Informal Learning Partnerships Ongoing

The Museum continues to develop community partnerships while serving as an important resource for many organizations and institutions throughout the Richmond area. Partnering with educators in schools and libraries, Museum educators lead professional development workshops, develop activity backpacks and participate in nationwide conferences to keep the Museum involved in policy work for education and potential fundraising.

Carpenter Science Theatre Company Ongoing

Thanks to the continued support of the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, the Science Museum of Virginia’s own Carpenter Science Theatre Company engages guests through daily performances of exciting shows both new and familiar. Professional actors develop and perform science-related shows to an audience of nearly 300,000 guests each year. Popular shows including “Madame Curie” and “Marco Polo’s Adventures” were also featured during Lunch Break Science, where attendees enjoyed scenes from these inspirational performances.


To celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Museum partnered with Hands-On Greater Richmond to host a film screening and moderated discussion with speakers from the Moton Museum in Farmville, Virginia. Moderated by the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities, guests were able to learn more about the local fight for Civil Rights and how Virginia’s own history played an important role in the national struggle.

Our spring exhibition, Wicked Plants, introduced guests to a world of powerful, poisonous and nasty plants. We unearthed the biochemical and physical connection between humans and plants by getting up-close with some of the most infamous plants in history – from deadly nightshade to hemlock. On April 18, the Museum welcomed New York Times bestselling author, Amy Stewart, to discuss the book that inspired the exhibition, Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities. Her wicked sense of humor brought a unique perspective on the dark side of some of nature’s seemingly innocent plants. Stewart's appearance and additional companion programming was generously sponsored by Dominion Resources.

NanoDays March 25

The Museum hosted the 7th consecutive NISE (Nanoscale Informal Science Education) Net NanoDays Event. Guests engaged and interacted with the nano kits spread across twenty tables in the Museum’s Discovery Room. This opportunity was facilitated by Museum staff and professionals from both Virginia Commonwealth University and University of Virginia. A Lunch Break Science Lecture following the event featured a presentation on water repellent surfaces and their applications.



On the third Friday of the month the Museum lights up the night with science during Science After Dark. The popular evening events offer different themes and special activities each month – featuring everything from blacklight activities to Rube Goldberg Machines and carrot whistles. Guests enjoy all-live astronomy presentations, stargazing through telescopes and a classic feature film in addition to exploring Museum exhibits.

Camp Ins March – May

The Museum offers unique overnight experiences that provide children with the opportunity to experience science after hours. Generous grant funding allows for schools like Charlottesville City to bring over 300 children, parents, and teachers to the Museum and participate in special Camp In activities. Each year, the Museum also hosts a Girls In Science Camp In to create excitement around science and encourage girls to engage in STEM. This year’s program, presented by DuPont, featured a presentation on bridge engineering by Virginia Epperly of the Virginia Department of Transportation. The girls were then challenged to build their own bridge using craft sticks, glue and ingenuity.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond Spring

The Museum worked with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond to highlight the theme of animation. Participants were introduced to animation basics, where they used praxinoscopes to animate and produce their own animation videos using stop motion technology or an animation app. The collaboration allowed for creative expression and demonstrated the development of their understanding for how animation works. Paper roller coasters were completed followed by the construction of model solar cars. The program culminated with an open house, inviting parents to see the projects as well as encouraging participants to engage in mini challenges.

Virginia529 Kids Zone Spring and Fall

The Museum was pleased to invite race fans old and young to the Virginia529 Kid’s Zone powered by the Science Museum of Virginia at Richmond International Raceway. Over 3,000 guests learned about automotive engineering and circuitry in both April’s Spring Series Toyota Owner’s 400 and September’s Xfinity Series Toyota Care 250. Fans not only explored STEM concepts as they navigated through Science Unplugged, but they also enjoyed a number of science demonstrations from Gallery Educators. The Museum is pleased to present these opportunities through its partnership with Virginia529.


The Museum celebrated its outstanding volunteer corps during National Volunteer Appreciation Week. At the Recognition Dinner and Awards Ceremony held on April 15, a number of volunteers were recognized for their amazing service to science education and the Museum. In 2014, 200 active volunteers contributed more than 21,000 hours to the Museum!

Science on Tap May 9

The Museum’s young professionals group, the Emerging Leaders Council, hosted the first annual Science on Tap craft beer festival to benefit the Science Museum of Virginia. Over 1,200 guests came out to enjoy live music, interactive craft brewing demonstrations and craft beers from across the Commonwealth beneath the Museum’s historic train sheds. The event raised over $45,000 to support the Museum in its mission.

To coincide with Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships, the Museum hosted the traveling exhibition, Bikes: Science on Two Wheels. We traced the evolution of the bicycle and showcased a diverse collection of historic, rare and peculiar bikes. The exhibition was paired with a custom kinetic bike sculpture by artist Tom Chenoweth, a photographic display of 120 years of Richmond cyclers and cycling finish line sketches by artist Greig Leach. Museum members also had the opportunity to head to the Valentine Museum to discover In Gear: Richmond Cycles where they received free admission during the month of September. Bikes: Science on Two Wheels was organized by Carnegie Science Center in cooperation with Bicycle Museum of America and was presented locally by CapTech and Premier Partner Virginia529.

Virginia Secretary of Education, Anne Holton, gave an inspiring speech on the importance of STEM education and encouraged women of all ages to pursue STEM-related career goals. Other speakers included University of Virginia physics undergraduate Janet Rafner and 6th grade student and aspiring meteorologist Parker Sale. In an hour the event raised over $133,000 in support of the Museum’s mission.


Bikes: Science on Two Wheels May 30 – September 27

Young volunteers from YMCA’s Y-Guides assembled STEM backpacks for local youth. Coordinated by Science Museum of Virginia Foundation Board Member, Brian Quigley, this group put together nearly 300 backpacks that were delivered to youth grades 3-5 in Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond. Remaining backpacks were delivered to local elementary schools, inspiring other youth to participate and give back to their communities.


This summer the Museum hosted week-long camps for underserved youth in the Richmond area to bring science within reach. Over 150 youth from local Boys & Girls clubs learned about energy, biomimicry and environmentalism by building “solar trees.” Mentors from Virginia Commonwealth University helped campers use iPads to research related topics, document their experiences and create commercials pitching their trees before heading out to Virginia Commonwealth University’s Rice River Center, an operational laboratory on the James River.

The Science Museum of Virginia was the recipient of a recent grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration totaling $456,428 over the course of three years. The Museum will now leverage over $2.2 million in previous investments in climate change exhibits and experiences to develop public programming and digital media messaging that will help the general public understand climate change and its impacts on Virginia’s communities. The Virginia Environmental Endowment also awarded the Museum a $25,000 grant for additional climate science and resiliency programming.

Inspire the World Campaign Pulling Back the Curtain on Progress

The old adage “measure twice, cut once” has never been more apt than for the year leading up to the opening of the Science Museum of Virginia’s most ambitious gallery to date. As we go to press, scaffolding wrapping the Main Concourse reflects the many physical layers and levels of detail involved in installing Speed and its iconic centerpiece, a thirty-ton artifact in a state-owned, historic building. Few outside of the building are aware that a steel foundation system was installed below-ground, beneath Boost!, before the earlier gallery was installed, anticipating the support system necessary to carry the weight of the Blackbird in perpetuity. Certainly, the Museum has established itself as a planning organization, in the best sense of that phrase. Working from the 2009 strategic plan, good process has kept us focused on creating a learning environment that the entire community can embrace and rally around. In 2015, the rising tide has continued to lift all boats and even an airplane and a submarine. Total public and private support has exceeded $38 million (surpassing our largest past campaign total), while work continues behind the scenes to complete current funded projects like the Speed Gallery and the Dewey Gottwald Center and to secure new gifts necessary to complete the transformation of Broad Street Station, strengthen the endowment and implement our Science within Reach programmatic initiatives. We are grateful for generous gifts from the Moses D. Nunnally, Jr. Charitable Trust, which support our ongoing outreach to Richmond adolescents through the Out of School Time STEM (OST STEM) Initiative as well as a new early childhood gallery due to open in Spring 2016. Ongoing support from Cognizant Technology Solutions and other sources ensures that the OST STEM program continues to evolve and serve more participants in Richmond and Petersburg. Support from the Wells Fargo Foundation has allowed us to adapt this effective program model to serve children and families through a new partnership with local libraries. In addition to the publicly funded Rotunda restoration, a grant from the Roller-Bottimore Foundation supports the preservation of historic Broad Street Station. Replacement of the massive windows lining the Main Concourse along with the stabilization of the roof and ceiling were necessary measures to protect the building from weather damage and provide the environmental control important to preserving the artifacts that will be on long-term exhibit in the new gallery. Additional gifts from Genworth Foundation, Markel Corporation and Owens & Minor provide support necessary to continue progress on remaining projects, including concept development of The Forge, a new hands-on experience platform planned for 2017.

John Russell Pope Society Endowment Gifts Received

The Science Museum of Virginia Foundation has reestablished its planned giving society as the John Russell Pope Society, in honor of the acclaimed architect of Broad Street Station, the Jefferson Monument, National Archives and National Gallery of Art. Pope’s Beaux Arts design speaks of the spirit of the American Renaissance of the Gilded Age of Railroads. Building materials— marble and granite—were meant to last. Incorporated into important design references—from ancient Greece to Thomas Jefferson—were innovations reminding us of the beauty of creating and thinking across disciplines. Design and engineering, science and art remain key to Inspiring Virginians to enrich their lives through science.
