Join us as we celebrate STEMtember! Women make up only 28% of the workforce in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). We are proud to be a part of the IF/THEN Initiative that is working to create gender equity in the STEM field.
Creative Discovery Museum (CDM) is officially re-igniting its $10 million capital campaign after temporarily suspending efforts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ignite Discovery: Creating the new CDM capital campaign will fund comprehensive renovations of CDM’s 43,000 square foot facility, providing opportunities for children and families to explore, innovate, create and play for generations to come. The initiative is centered on three goals: to ensure CDM remains a leader in experiential learning, a gathering place for all children and a gateway to a vibrant downtown Chattanooga.
