Today it was announced that a new charitable entity, Red River STEM, seeks permission from the City of Shreveport to operate a science center in the Sci-Port Discovery building. Pending approval from the City, the Community Foundation and several other organizations and individuals plan to provide start-up funding for the new 501(c)3. Jay Pierson has agreed to serve as the new Board chairman if appropriately selected. A new Board is being formed and an Executive Director will be hired soon. Plans for reopening the rest of Sci-Port are in the works, so stay tuned for exciting new announcements! The POP exhibit and IMAX will remain open Thursday-Sunday.
