NEWS RELEASE: i Space (Edited for publication by Chuck Gibson)
LOVELAND, OH (May 10, 2020) – In late April, correspondence stating that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, iSPACE was permanently closing. Happily, that is not the case! However, we need your help.
iSPACE serves students, teachers and professionals by teaching them necessary STEM skills to prepare them for the real world through immersive, hands on programs. (Provided)
It is true that we are currently closed and that the health crisis has caused our viability to be tenuous. Like many other non-profits and small businesses in our community, we experienced a significant loss in revenue from the forced cancelation of school field trips and camps which are the mainstay of our organization. However, we are greatly encouraged by the tremendous response from the community about the value iSPACE delivers through our mission. The Board of Trustees is committed to investigating options to keep iSPACE operational. Under the current environment, some of these options may be unconventional, as we deal with social distancing and closed schools.
