Sacramento’s Premier Science Learning Center Breaks Ground This Fall

SACRAMENTO, CA. – A large, colorful banner was unfurled for the first time Thursday, Aug. 11, draped over an aging building that was once a power station but now displays a new placard in the name of education.

A banner ceremony took place at the historic PG&E Power Station B, the planned location of the Powerhouse Science Center, which is situated in the River District at 400 Jibboom Street in Sacramento. A $7 million check from Proposition 84’s Nature Education Facility Program will be used to begin construction on the $50 million project.

The Center has nearly completed its pre-construction phase and will begin breaking ground later this year.
