In late October, VIP guests had the opportunity to attend a special reception for the Saint Louis Science Center’s new exhibition, “Becoming Jane: The Evolution of Dr. Jane Goodall.” Guests enjoyed themed food and drinks and listened to talks from experts from the Saint Louis Zoo and Washington University in St. Louis. Guests were invited to tour the exhibit, which offers a comprehensive history of Goodall’s life – from childhood to her work with chimpanzees in Africa. In addition, the exhibition features several audio-visual components, including one that allows for guests to mimic chimpanzee calls and be judged for accuracy.
“The Science Center is thrilled to welcome our philanthropic partners to celebrate our newest special exhibition," says Todd Bastean, Saint Louis Science Center CEO. "It honors the contributions Dr. Jane Goodall has made throughout her career to advancing science and highlights the importance of sustainability and conservation.”
