B/E Aerospace Supports Science Center Project

B/E Aerospace has agreed to serve as the presenting sponsor for the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium’s Discovery Plaza. The new entryway to the expanded center now bears signage recognizing the company’s role. B/E Aerospace CEO Amin Khoury was on hand recently to unveil the signage and celebrate his company’s 10-year, $250,000 underwriting partnership.

With a mission to “open every mind to science,” the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium unveiled its expanded facilities last summer and now features more than 50 hands-on educational exhibits, an 8,000-gallon fresh and saltwater aquarium featuring both local and exotic marine life, a digital planetarium, a conservation research station, a Florida exhibit hall and an interactive Everglades exhibit.

“The gift from B/E Aerospace will allow us to introduce the science center to even more audiences with expanded programming and new exhibits,” said the center’s CEO, Lew Crampton. “It is especially significant that a company like B/E Aerospace recognizes the science center as our county’s headquarters for informal science education.”

Headquartered in Wellington, B/E Aerospace is the leading manufacturer of aircraft passenger cabin interior products for the commercial and business jet aircraft markets worldwide. B/E Aerospace is also the leading global distributor of aerospace fasteners.

The South Florida Science Center & Aquarium is located at 4801 Dreher Trail North in West Palm Beach. Its hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Marcy Hoffman at mhoffman@sfsciencecenter.org.
