Kate McNaughton from the Moxi Museum
Program- was given by Kate Mc Naughton from the Moxi Museum regarding Moxi
            Kate grew up in London and has been living in Santa Barbara for the past eight years. She has two children.
Moxi is the Wolf Museum of exploration and innovation. It is a hands-on learning Museum. The city of Santa Barbara gave the land at a cost of one dollar per year and it has recently opened using much of the local resources and materials of Santa Barbara. Since its opening eight months ago it has had 135,000+ visitors. It has 44 full and part-time employees and 90 volunteers aged 13 to 77. There's been 6000 schoolchildren visitors and many of them have visited either for no cost or at a 50% discount. There are eight different tracks with different themes for exploration, innovation and active participation. Some of those include: a soundtrack where people can feel and see the music being played or created. Another involves forces such as gravity and propulsion. A third involves light in the creation of design and colors. A fourth involves speed with a race track in the creation of cars that can be built and modified. A fifth  involves mechanics of movement. A sixth involved images of people with virtual reality and projections. On the roof there is an area to visualize the ocean in the surrounding areas by telescopes and periscopes and to see how weather is orchestrated.
Moxi has camps and afterschool classes. It has birthday party packages in conjunction with Rusty's pizza which is close by. There after party opportunities and there certainly opportunities for volunteering. Moxie is on Insta Graham and Facebook.
Moxi was created after a $27 million capital campaign which is covered the building and its operating costs are approximately $3 million a year of which the costs of membership and attending covers $2 million. The cost of attending is $10 per child; $14 per adult; no charge for anyone under three years of age; and membership is $90 per year
