With a leadership gift from Joseph and Judith Conda, as well as a grant from the state of Ohio, this addition will enhance and expand the museum. The Mazza Museum, along with Findlay City Schools, will work together to make the addition a dynamic, student-centered partnership, where UF students in the sciences, education, art, and more can come together with the college students of tomorrow in a creative and exciting hub for all things Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.
Research shows that a strong foundation in the arts can lead to enhanced critical thinking skills in the sciences. STEAM education connects them all together. Mazza is now on a path to inspire intelligence and encourage imagination with the addition of a new Conda STEAM Education Center.
Join us in creating this exciting new space dedicated to STEAM education. Every gift to the STEAM project has an immediate impact on the range and quality of the educational opportunities available to children and adults. Inspire tomorrow’s innovators and problem-solvers!
The Conda STEAM Education Center will blend Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics in a hands-on learning lab that fosters creativity, collaboration and critical thinking skills. You can be a part of it all! Your gift will help secure crucial funding for supplies, equipment, technology and educational resources that create a memorable experience for visitors of all ages.
Joseph and Judith Conda
“Magical” is the word Judith Conda uses to describe her first visit to University of Findlay’s Mazza Museum. The trip was happenstance, and she was immediately captivated by the 36-year-old museum, which houses the largest and most diverse collection of original picture book art in the world.
