The Fresno Community Science Workshop Program began in 1995 in a small room at Dickey Park, and later moved to Granny’s Neighborhood Park, where it played a key role in the redevelopment of the local community and housing project. This fall after nearly a decade, the program will be making a new home at Highway City Park, in a previously unused large building in the middle of the neighborhood park.

To help with the move and set-up of the new, larger space, the CSW Network arranged for staff from Watsonville, Greenfield and Sanger Community Science Workshops to spend a Sunday creating and building new floor exhibits to be housed at the workshop. Staff from different workshops got a chance to work in teams together and share knowledge, building skills and exhibit designs.
Thanks to all the staff who came out on their Sunday to help with the new workshop space. The new Fresno CSW site will be opening in January 2015–Stay tuned for more updates!
