New CEO of Science East announced

Lieff Salonius,

Director, Development and Communications, Science East Science Centre

For Immediate Release:

 New CEO of Science East announced

Fredericton, N.B., June 9, 2020- Science East is pleased to announce the appointment of Guy Robbins to the position of CEO, effective immediately. Guy is a strong advocate of change as the means for growth on a personal and professional level. A citizen of the world, he was brought up in Nigeria, Kenya and England.  He moved to Canada in 1997. He brings to Science East 20 years of executive and curatorial experience in museum management which spans across the US, UK and Western Canada. His love of history inspired his work as a curator at the UK’s Imperial War Museum and the National Maritime Museum, the Augusta Museum of History in Georgia and other air and naval history museums. In Manitoba, he held the position of Executive Director at two museums before moving to New Brunswick. Guy was hired as Chief Operating Officer at Science East in September 2019.

The provincial heritage building in which Science East exists creates a place where the lessons of the past as well social and scientific advancements come together to support an energized, creative future. “I see the incredible opportunity here. Adaptive reuse of historic buildings are strong attractions for the public and spark growth in the surrounding area. Downtown locations can easily become busy community hubs of activity and add value to the properties and businesses nearby”. In the coming months, Science East’s board will engage with our new CEO to fulfill the critical steps needed for a multi-phased plan to revitalize Science East as a heritage, education and tourism asset.

 

Guy’s experience and enthusiasm could not come at a better time for the unprecedented situation presented by the current COVID-19 pandemic. The rapid response of Science East’s staff to the pandemic assures him that long-term goals are supported by a strong and flexible team. Staff quickly pivoted their activities by customizing at-home learning activities and ideas for families and educators using social media. In addition, Science East capitalized on the unexpected time and free space to address long-held goals such as renovations, which are normally a challenge as the centre is occupied throughout the busy summer tourist season.

 

Science East is open throughout the year normally and its visitation is in the range of 16,000-20,000 every year, with a further 40,000 people reached annually through outreach across the province with STEM programs, events, exhibits and our portable planetarium. COVID-19 has been a blow to revenues through science centre admissions and summer camps, however Guy is confident things will resume in the form of an adjusted normalcy later this year. The science centre is in the final stages of their plan for a modified opening targeted for late July-early August, depending upon the situation in the province. Helpful ways to support the science centre at this time include sponsoring our online at-home science activities for families, making a secure donation, or pre-purchasing a gift certificate for use at a later date. You can support other families in our community by following our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram feeds and sharing our home science activities, facts and videos with friends.

 

Robbins replaces retiring CEO, Dr. David Desjardins. David began as a volunteer in 1998, and subsequently became board President, Executive Director and lastly, CEO in 2007. Bruce Gorham, current board President, thanks David for his many years of dedicated service. Science East was established in 1994 as the lifelong dream of founder, Dr. Marie MacBeath.

 

About Science East Science Centre

Science East’s mission is to inspire and inform through hands-on science experiences. Over 60,000 people each year participate in Science East’s science discovery activities through exploring the over 150 experiential, interactive exhibits at their downtown Fredericton science centre, and through extensive outreach across the province. Science East provides K -12 curriculum-based school science programs, science camps, school/community-based science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) events and professional learning for teachers across New Brunswick in every region.
