Sponsorship opportunities

Support for the Innovation Celebration will help the RMSC continue to serve as a community-wide resource to create the change agents and future workforce of Rochester. Sponsorship support subsidizes admission & transportation costs for underserved groups to attend RMSC programs. Sponsors are critical to providing unforgettable experiences that encourage community members of all ages to start, expand, and enrich their own STEM careers and life stories. 

For questions about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Kendra Lee Adams at 585.697.1939  or kadams@rmsc.org.
