    Over the years, it has been such a pleasure to see OMSI’s Gala grow into one of the most anticipated social gatherings of the year—a time for honored guests from across the region to come together in support of science education and families. This year, OMSI is honored to be a guest in your homes, and to share the night with your family and friends in support of science-fueled fun--at a time when nurturing curious, inventive minds is more important than ever.

    Our philanthropic and business leaders have always helped OMSI explore new, creative ways to support youth and families. Many of you have already reached out to reaffirm your commitments to OMSI and the community we serve and have helped mobilize the community you are passionate about. All of us at OMSI are incredibly grateful for your support as we navigate these uncertain times.

    I am humbled as I share my heartfelt gratitude to all of you for coming together to support Gala this year and every year I have been honored to serve as president. As we can see, OMSI’s mission to inspire curiosity and support informed action is enduring and essential. Thank you for coming together to reaffirm our longstanding commitment to science education, informed action, and curious learners all across the region.

    With gratitude,

    Nancy Stueber President and CEO

    Thank you for tuning in to the OMSI Gala and for Celebrating Science with us. Vernier Software & Technology is proud to have been a Presenting Sponsor of the OMSI Gala for many years, and is delighted to support the Gala in its innovative format this year. We believe OMSI plays a critical role in educating and inspiring people of all ages.

    Now more than ever, Oregon needs a scientifically literate community, and OMSI provides experiences that help people understand how science affects all of our lives. Through STEM education, kids learn how to solve problems and prepare to get good jobs. Adults make informed health decisions for their families. And as a society, we all become part of the solution to the most pressing issues of the 21st century.

    Congratulations to President Nancy Stueber on her retirement and to Incoming President Erin Graham on her new role. We thank them for their past and future years of leadership, and look forward to great things to come!

    We hope you will join us in raising your virtual paddles to help support OMSI’s impactful work building an informed and better future.
