Letter: Science Center grows

The Aspen Science Center is excited to announce that we have hired a new operations manager. Keith Berglund, formerly the executive director of the Aspen Youth Center, has joined the organization. Keith will have overall responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the Science Center, overseeing all areas of operation, working closely with the board of directors and the president.

Keith holds a BA in biology from Occidental College and has many years of experience teaching science and math, including at the Aspen Country Day School and Vail Mountain School, among others, as well as extensive nonprofit leadership experience.

Keith brings a wealth of science education, nonprofit leadership, and experience implementing and delivering programs for youth. His biology background complements the strong physics backgrounds of our other staff and board members. Keith’s hiring follows the recruitment of Education Coordinator Maya Hunt this past summer, and represents another strong step in the growth of ASC.

Tuesday, Dec. 6, is Colorado Gives Day. Don’t forget to include Aspen Science Center in your year-end giving. And look for our Physics Cafes starting in January at the Wheeler Opera House and Aspen Center for Physics.

David Houggy
President, Aspen Science Center
