I am writing to you today with exciting news regarding the ongoing progress at Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe. Thanks to your unwavering support, we have made considerable strides in our mission to preserve Tesla’s legacy, advance education, and restore our historic laboratory.
I’m thrilled to share that 2022 was a year marked by significant milestones. We have initiated the next critical phase of our laboratory restoration project—with much needed demolition and construction projects now underway. This work will secure the preservation of our building and is a leap towards realizing our vision for a museum and science center. In addition to that, we have successfully expanded our Board, secured substantial funding, and enhanced our educational efforts. Please find the details of these accomplishments in our 2022 annual report.
Further adding to our achievements, TSCW is thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a grant of $1.47 million by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). This award will significantly boost the restoration efforts of our beloved Wardenclyffe Laboratory, allowing us to further advance our mission. We are deeply grateful to NYSCA for their generous support and recognition of our endeavors.
We are excited to announce a special date for your calendar. Please save the date for our annual Tesla Expo happening on October 13-14 at Wardenclyffe. This celebration of Nikola Tesla’s life, works, and enduring legacy will feature exciting exhibits, interactive presentations, hands-on activities, and the world’s largest Tesla Coil. We can’t wait to bring our supporters together for this immersive experience in a journey through Tesla’s contributions to the realms of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.
As we continue our work in 2023 and beyond, your support remains vital to our efforts. I want to take this moment to express our profound gratitude for your contribution to our journey so far. Together, we’re not just preserving a legacy, but inspiring a future of innovation in the spirit of Nikola Tesla.
Thank you for standing with us as we continue to make an impact on the world.
