Innovation Experience Center

The Minnesota Children’s Museum Rochester is pushing ahead with plans for a new family-focused Innovation Experience Center. The museum's leadership presented the concept, now nearly a year in the works, to a group of city leaders and stakeholders at a meeting Monday afternoon. The museum is seeking community support for a multi-generational museum focused on three key areas: innovation, health and well-being, and cultural exchange. "First and foremost, it will be a community-based museum," said Heidi Mestad, the museum's director. "If we make it cool enough for the community to get excited about, visitors will want to come too."

  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
