ExpERIEnce Children’s Museum goes loco with new exhibit dedicated to trains
GE Transportation donated an interactive locomotive exhibit in honor of the 20th anniversary of ExpERIEnce Children’s Museum. The exhibit, complete with a GE locomotive cab, the history of locomotives, and train sets, was designed as a fun learning experience for children of all ages.
The ExpERIEnce Children’s Museum staff, GE Transportation and children from the Boys & Girls Club celebrated the opening of the new exhibit with the official ribbon-cutting on April 20. Following the ribbon cutting and exploration of the new locomotive cab, ExpERIEnce Children’s Museum Executive Director Ainslie Brosig and GE Transportation Product Cost and Innovation Leader Jim Meyer addressed the audience.
For over 125 years, GE has been proud to be part of the Erie community. Many generations of GE families have grown up in Erie.
“It was a natural fit for GE Transportation to work with the ExpERIEnce Children’s Museum to design and build an interactive exhibit, complete with an imitation GE locomotive cab. We’re looking forward to watching children enjoy it for years to come,” said Richard Simpson, vice president of global supply chain for GE Transportation.
At GE Transportation, we hope to help inspire an increased focus on STEM and potentially, the next generation of our employees.
