Big Bear Valley Education Trust is on a ‘Vision Quest’
The vision, is long standing and ever evolving, to build a STEM interactive museum for children, of all ages, in Big Bear Valley. The acronym STEM, stands for science, technology, engineering and math — the first of its kind museum, STEMQUEST Big Bear, will be curated toward the engagement and entertainment of young minds.
Big Bear Valley Education Trust (Ed Trust), was founded in 2009 by Liz Harris, Ed. D., to “create interactive and engaging educational opportunities, and lifelong learning for students, community members, and visitors, using the unique resources of Big Bear Valley.”
Liz Harris, who has a long history as an educator and civil servant, along with other qualified community members, began this quest for all residents, and their children, across Big Bear Valley.
Ed Trust programs and initiatives, that have been established over the years, span everything
from in-classroom and educational events to the establishment of the Pebble Plains and
Wildland Parks concept.
Ever expanding and evolving, Ed Trust’s vision for the STEM museum is by all accounts a BIG
one and they are looking for, not only the monetary support, but for that special someone to take the organizational LEAD to bring their vision to life and to the valley.
The call to action from the Ed Trust board is paraphrased and summed up from the historic
slogan “WE WANT YOU!” To that end, all interested and welcomed community members are encouraged to contact the Ed Trust at info@BearValleyEdTrust.org or Linda Bulman, President at (714) 315-7769.
